Stitching On The Road

I finished making a set of napkins for Ballicart on the way from home to Esperance WA.

Art with a purpose I thought, but then napkins still function without embroidery. Without the ‘art’ they’d be dull and boring – wouldn’t they?

    you are right; without stitches, they’re just plain, somewhat boring napkins.. there to use if needed, but otherwise ‘insignificant.’ with your ‘stitches’ they suddenly have a soul, are of great importance to the lucky person whose day is upgraded – strictly because someone took time to transfer a part of their own soul into that plain square of cloth….

      You’re right, I hadn’t realised before but as well as thought, skill, time and effort there is a gift of soul in each creation! Thank you!
