Once upon a time, there was this young girl who loved CRAYONS, SCISSORS
and PAPER. For hours she could be found sitting at her little table and chair her Grand-père
(grandfather) had made with with such tender loving care. She just followed her heart and created. She really wanted to be an artiste, but her professional family had other plans for her.
To this day you can still see a crease between her eyes
as she is still be so focused on her creativity.
Some things just don't change...that young girl is still there
however she has now replaced
her crayons with FLOSS ( Presencia her favourite) , she still uses scissors ( dovo her favourite)
and her PAPER is WHITE MONACO fabric. ( her favourite too).
With the addition of Cori's INSPIRING PAPER LADIES, her paper dolls
have been replaced with sophistication, femininity and monthly INSPIRATION.
She has been very busy lately stitching up her MARCH Paper Lady.
( By the way, her artiste side has decided to write in the third party,
why, I have no idea, but go along with her will you? :)
One of her very best friends from childhood is a NUN,
Sister Johanna-Therese, shares that she prays everyday for Mdm Samm.
When asked why? She says " Because if God gives YOU more gifts
I know you will share them"
She does believe her ability to bring some things to life is a GIFT.
She never takes that for granted, NEVER!
She wanted to show YOU, how to COLOUR WITH FLOSS....
She outlines every Paper Lady with a pencil. Very lightly she traces
and then the MAGIC begins. She never really knows what colours
or style will influence her. For March she was thinking all YELLOWS
and daisies, but THIS LADY had other plans...
Sister Johanna, tells her, she has to be very still and quiet at times
so creativity can pour into her heart and mind. A big reason why she embraces
So this day, Periwinkle, variegated yellow and white were the floss
that brought this to life....She embroidered her hair in a deep copper colour
and her BLOUSE, well she will share that cross stitch technique in the
She includes all the colours she has used for each Paper Lady she has completed to date.
She has plans for them, but YOU will have to wait till the end of the year
to see where they will end up...
and SHE DOES THIS Twice...She has a set of all the ladies so far...
Mdm Samm cannot keep up to this MUSE....
but oh my does she inspire her to stitch....
Here is she is completed, complete with cashmere bunny. (Cashmere floss is exclusive to the Paper Ladies, they will have some to sell very soon)
Her blouse is done with 2 colours of periwinkle and some yellow variegated floss, it resembles a popcorn blouse from the past she used to wear. She even added a feather in her hat...
Here is she is close up, isn't she darling with those eyes to match her bow!
Tomorrow, APRIL Paper Ladies
will be revealed as well as the NEWEST to the
collection Chalk Talk .....
