La-D-Da

"I like to describe my style as whimsical and a little primitive. When my grandchildren were born I sang them songs and those songs found their way onto the graph, those designs are sprinkled throughout and remain precious to me because of the people they bring to mind and a smile! I truly love the old school girl samplers and am inspired by them. They symbolize literacy in a day when most girls were not in a regular classroom. They also taught young girls a skill that could get them ahead of the rest. But they unleashed the creativity of a child - huge flowers, crazy houses, the world through the eyes of a child, most tucked away for many years, but recorded none the less for us to enjoy. So join me on my journey to create lovely pictures that we can preserve through cross-stitch to remind others many years from now how simple life really is. Happy stitching always," Lori
