For Johoanna - Creativity Comes From the Heart

Art! Who comprehends her? With whom can one consult concerning this great goddess?
Ludwig van Beethoven
As I read this quote by the great composer, I thought of how humankind is driven to create. That desire comes from within but expresses itself in many ways - visual arts, performing arts, literature, a host of other endeavors, and of course STITCHING!
I'm pleased to hear that this page reached you safely, Johoanna. I hope you are having a wonderful time getting settled in your new surroundings, making new friends, finding new outlets for your own creativity.
I used commercial felt for the background of this page. The black is glittery, as is the red back page and some of the threads. After all, creating brings a sparkle to the eye and a glow to our lives.


  1. Thank you very much Gayle. I love this page, and the quote is awesome. Am starting to think about the cover for my book and how I'm going to bind it. I have a few ideas.

  2. Wonderful interpretation and beautiful composition.

  3. What an interesting page. There is so much detail here.

  4. Lovely page. It connects music with fabric arts.

  5. Great combination of the arts and creativity!
