For the child within.

This week I've picked up a piece that I began a while ago and started stitching on it again, I like the way that the work evolves over a period of time. Perspectives change and new ideas form by coming back to things. I intend to use more embroidery and to bring out the theme of magic which has been in my mind from the start.

I find that working with naive images of things which exist and things that exist only in the mind helps to bring out the child within, it gives us permission to play and explore. From my perspective its almost as if I am working on something which has its own story within it and my only task is to be the one who releases the tale.

The universe is full of magical things
patiently waiting for our wits to grow sharper.

Hi Jude yes I was inspired by your work to create this piece for my grandchildren and I should have credited it to you as a source of inspiration. All I can do is say sorry that I didn't and hope that I haven't caused any offence. I so admire your work and I am sure that you are a source of inspiration to many many people.Thanks for putting me right it was early on in my blogging days and I am learning the protocol all the time.
