I've been struggling to find my words the past few days. But today, I find I need to fumble through a little bit to express the sadness and appreciation I feel for Lisa Roswell of The Primitive Needle and the Roswell family. I am so saddened that she passed away and had great hopes that things would turn out well for her when I learned of what happened yesterday. Lisa brought her wonderful designs and charisma to our stitching community and we will sorely miss her.
The title of my post is the title of one of Lisa's designs. Lisa's life spoke to all of us. We were inspired by her love of Halloween and her creativity and she spoke loudly to many of us even though we may have never met her in person. Our stitching community has suffered a great loss but I know we will pay tribute to Lisa in our stitches and by continuing to bring her designs to life via linen and thread. She will not be forgotten. My deepest sympathy to her family.
Since I feel that today is about Lisa, I'll share my stitching and stuff in the next day or two.
Remember to let your life speak. Take pleasure in the little things. Dance as if no one is looking. Love freely.
