do you see a recurring theme? i love to bounce between paint and pattern making. i get inspired in painting and then use some of those same motifs in my patterns. i am having fun…

    Having fun is the most important aspect. I can see why you are attracted to this colour palette!

    I enjoy reading your blog and seeing what you’re up to artistically. I came across your blog quite awhile ago by chance and was very interested because of your story. Our son suffered a TBI too and he is doing amazing. Basically 100% recovered. He had to have surgery and then a lot of rehab but came through it all, thank God.

    As I look at your pattern work, I am wondering if you are familiar with Mary Ann Moss at She has been going crazy with patterns lately. I did not see Mary Ann listed in your “Link list” so if you don’t read her blog you might enjoy it. Take care and congrats on the birth of your sweet little girl. God bless!
