When I did a piece for the quilt alliance several years ago they were stressing the importance of personalizing your work for the future. I think this is a grand idea and just now getting around to fine tuning a short narrative on me, cq, and the needle for the last page of all the books.
Short is hard... I don't want a full blown biography but am close to the final version.
I also wanted to add a picture of myself. I have many pictures of myself doing all sorts of things but only one of me with a piece of needlework and my chatelaine. None actually stitching. Lots of pictures of me cooking...my family loves to capture me in the kitchen.. I was going to use the one in the garden as it is my semi-official photo for everything. It is the one that was in Better Homes & Gardens a few years back. Personally my favorite of myself is the one with the sheep. I get warm and fuzzy feelings every time I see it.
Since I couldn't choose I decided to add a composite of my most favorite things.... stitching, cooking, gardening and animals... Now back to work on the narrative.
The lady who used to cut my hair retired and sent me to someone else... She saw me the other day and asked if I was still going to M. and if so, she had done a terrible job on my hair. I thought I looked fine... just goes to show ya!!! It's grey and clean so it's the least of my worries and as I look at these pictures, it always looks terrible.
