The poet knows how to play on a harp without string and after he knows how to answer to those who claim they didn't heard the music.

To complete my website which is in French, I've decided to create a blog in English.

In fact, it will rather be a Gallery, as I am a better stitcher than writer ...
All my artwork from 1999 to 2007 can be found in the Archives : November 2007

I'll add regularly some views and close-up of my new pieces.

Departure to Morzine

Tomorrow morning : departure to Morzine
where I'll exhibit from July 2 to July 6 as "invited artist" (salle de l'ancienne Poste) in l'Art du Quilt.

I bring 37 large pieces (the small ones are still in the USA) of creative embroidery : Pomp and Circumstance, Vert Attitude, Florae Solis, Jungle Fever, Tangerine Stitches, Alien Armor, etc ...
and Shimmering Gardens - Sunset (the pink panel of 4 BJP pages) finished yesterday in a hurry.

I'll put some pictures of the exhibit when I come back home.

I hope the weather will be fine as the country is wonderful and, with my husband, we plan to walk a lot in nature for resourcing our minds.
