So now I am thinking about what all these people have in common, the qualities I admire in them. I have come up with: devotion to a cause, dream, or art form, compassion, courage, tenacity, and an ability to speak what is on your mind without caring what other people think.
And what does this admiration feel like to me? It is a warm feeling inside, a bright, energetic feeling, a feeling of inspiration.
Now to translate these thoughts and feelings to a design that can be interpreted through fabric and embroidery. :o)
