Art Feeds My Soul…Guest Blogger: Alba Romero

Level 4 Experimental Stitch and Multi Media

I have always loved stitch. The love of stitch was a part of my life as a small young person. From my mother and grandmother, I grew to love the garden also. The garden became my inspiration. When I was a little person, my grandmother allowed me to cut her favorite flowers from her garden. I so love the garden and everything associated with it that I have chosen it as the theme for my present work.

 About 20 years ago, I was lucky to see Gail’s book on stitch. This was the beginning of my interest to learn more about stitch. I was also able to take a class from Gail and other teachers that were working with the stitches that I enjoyed doing myself—by hand and by machine. The more I learned about stitch, design, and color, the more I loved it. This inspired me to take a serious look at dedicating my time and committing to refine my stitch as an art form. This is something that each one of us can do.

 I plan to do this art for the rest of my life, hoping that the more I practice, the better I will become, and that someday I will be able to create a masterpiece.

Thanks to my husband, Pete, for his encouragement and support to do the things that I love doing. As art feeds my soul, so does the support of my friends and family.
