Sometimes I call it my atelier. Other days it is my sewing room. It is the place I go to create. Every woman should have a “a room of one’s own”. Virginia Woolf ‘s quote actually referred to personal liberty to create art. She said “a woman must have money and a room of her own if she is to write fiction”.
Today women need a sanctuary. It could be a sewing room, a potting shed, a corner of a kitchen, a personal space for herself. A place where she can nurture her body, mind, and spirit.
I love making my own greeting cards. And I love all things French. These are two cards I made the other day. They were for much-loved friends.
This card is called BIRD HAIR DAY.
I made this card for the most elegant and sophisticated woman I know. She is French, 92 years old, and has a rapier wit.
