The Knotty Sheep Shop

Per the recommendation of artist/illustrator Monica Lee - I decided to purchase "Success" which is edited by J. Pincott.

It is a remarkable text in which snippets of wisdom are recited by those to which *we* have deemed successful: Oprah; Steve Jobs; Bill Clinton; George Lucas; et al. Not all those contained within the confines of the covers are billionaires ... some are philosophers & poets. Some are activists who have changed the world for the better. Some are just regular people who found their true love.

While I have only begun to embark upon my journey into the pages of this book - I found a quote by Jon Bon Jovi to ring true to my soul. ".... No matter what you want to do with your life, be passionate. The world doesn't need any more gray. On the other hand, we can't get enough color ...." WOW! My thoughts exactly!

Being an artist isn't the most easiest of professions - but it is a profession that must contain passion! I like the idea that when someone purchases a tidbit of fiber from me ... they also get some of my exuberance, my vibrance - my zest! I try to interpret what *I* see into colors!

One of my latest fiber creations is Bridgette.
I hope these colors tingle & inspire you to create something wonderful!

Comments ... please!
