DAP my knife

Finally I have worked out the whole story inspired by my homeland, Trinidad and Tobago. Now the hard work begins.  This is going to be a lot of drawing. Don’t be surprised to see more portraits on this blog. I’ve got to keep my ‘knife’ sharp.




I was taught how to stitch in secondary school, aka, high school and despite the love I had for it, I never focused on it as a craft. Flash forward several (several) years later, I developed an interest in YouTuber, Li Ziqi's embroidery a year ago during the height of the pandemic. It reminded me of the calm and joy I felt when I stitched fabric. As for embroidery, I had not created a piece in over 19 years. The last pieces I created were little embroidered purses using the fabric of my wedding dress. Only one person has that gift today and that knowledge has inspired another project which is due to begin in December. 

Today's offering was inspired by Li Ziqi and I hope I have inspired you to craft your art journey.
