The best thing about doing needlepoint for very small children is that they are so uncritical. The don’t say things like, “I see you’ve missed some stitches over here on the leg, was that intentional?” or “Was this creature blinded in a fight?” They will clasp it in their little arms and love it besottedly, inseparably as the thing becomes more and more rancid. ~Carole Berman and Jennifer Lazarus

    I was so touched when I read your description of this work. What a wonderful cause, and a charming piece of needlework. Keep up the good work, and hope that you get much pleasure in doing it.

  • Thanks so much Heather. I so appreciate your words and also the fav. I’m not a very keen “needleworker”, but enjoyed to try and also enjoyed making a picture. Made me think of my teaching days in a Grade One class.

    What a wonderful idea and meaningful work! This reminds me of the toys for toddlers that have buttons, zippers, shoelaces, etc., usually on a doll or stuffed animal of some sort. Your collection of art for children is terrific!

  • Thanks so MUCH dear Dottie, your enthusiasm and support is wonderful! Much appreciated.
