The name Tapestry Girl is playful and I like to dip into playfulness when things get too industrious. Textile art draws on creativity, skillfulness and industriousness. It’s easy to get bogged down in the mechanical side of life but when I remember to be lighthearted, grateful and playful, it feels like magic happens.

Life is busy, I have a day job, kids and a house to manage, my needlepoint tapestry is portable, so I sew as I go, it’s part of my playful project. It’s fun and rewarding to find interesting, challenging and gorgeous places to sew. People ask me how I get it all done, the key for me, is to remember to be playful and to sew as I go.
