It first caught my eye because of the colour, my favourite colour is purple, I also love butterflies and I have always wanted to stitch something with Live, Laugh, Love. So I added the design to my ever increasing wish list and didn't think too much more about it. Then the other day on Facebook Michele Sayetta was tagged in a photo, it's not a great image on here because I've had to use the Facebook photo.
This image really spoke to my heart. I have had depression for a long long time and unfortunately also suffered with postnatal depression following the birth of my son. He is now 19 months old and I still have down days but recently I had decided to let these thoughts go when I started feeling them. When I saw this image on Facebook it literally took my breath away as it seemed to be there just for me. I am finding it hard to put into words exactly how it made me feel. I immediately contacted the artist Lisa Steinke and requested to be her friend, I looked at her other images on Facebook and looked for more of her art on the internet.
I then came across these images which also spoke to me.
I hope you will forgive me this self-indulgent post and go and see Lisa's art for yourself. Her new website is http://www.lisasteinkeart.com/
I hope HAED will chart more of these designs and as I can guarantee they will be added to my stash and I'm going to be saving up to buy some of Lisa's prints so that I can have this gorgeous designs hanging on my walls even if I don't get round to stitching them.
If you made it this far, thanks for reading!
