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.

BJP2008 - Ready to go

I've got the idea for the final piece using the twelve squares, found and/or dyed the fabrics and threads, collected the beads and bought some more (I always need more colors, sizes, you know what I mean... LOL) and prepared the 12 backgrounds (boring task).

The background is a simple off white square 4" x 4", stitched on a turquoise 6" x 6" fabric (3 different tones of hand dyed turquoise)
The little square, which is my BJP page, will be embellished with various stitches and beads.

NOW begins the pleasure !
