Lost and Found

I was cleaning some other sections of my work area (I posted what I found when I was cleaning my scraps the other day HERE)a couple of days ago, and I found these.

I used to draw all the time and in my teens I wanted to go to art school. My health issues and family conflicts prevented me from pursuing that dream and eventually, I stopped drawing like that.

Do you ever feel like you lost something important to you? Like a big part of yourself? When I found these drawings I remembered that part of me.

Well, I daydreamed a little, what would it have been like if I kept working at it. Then I snapped out from La-La Land, because the kids were calling for me... oh, it was lunch time.

Perhaps, I didn't lose that part of me, I just tucked it away and forgot about it. I found something more important and dear to my heart. Sometimes life is crazy, loud, and needs lots of my attention but I will never trade this for anything.

I think I am going to start drawing with the kids every once in a while. That will be fun.

I have been working on my new stitchery pattern for my Etsy store and quilt stores. I will post some pictures on Monday. See you then...


  1. Your drawings are beautiful! I wish I could draw! Can't wait to see your stitchery pattern!

  2. I remember you telling me about your interest in drawing, but I forgot about it. GREAT sketches! I'm impressed. That's a talent you should pick up again soon...
