little sparrow on a pocketAugust 11, 2009
It feels good to finally get my sparrow lino print onto some fabric and make them into these ‘spare pockets’ or little bags you wear around your waist… these two are just a start – I plan to make a heap more…. and a quote that another Jo sent me that I wanted to share with all of you….
“To laugh often and much; To win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children;
To earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends; To appreciate beauty, to find the best in others;
To leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch, or a redeemed social condition;
To know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded.”
~ Ralph Waldo Emmerson
