Words of wisdom

Foto-2029One of my nieces wanted words of wisdom to put on her wall, for Christmas

Since we’re both dancers I wanted something dance related and decided to use this great quote. Don’t know who said it, but I read it as a recomendation to see whatever happens to you as part of your life, and rather than cursing your mistakes,  to build something new and unexpected from them.

Also I dislike perfection, in art (as in life in general) I want improvisation and evolution, which this quote encourages.

I choose tou use the word “when” instead of “if” because accidents will happen to all of us, better be prepared.

The design is mine, and I ‘m particularly fond of the E connectiong the two words stumble and dance. I used cross stitches for the black letters, and back stitch as well as basting stitches for the red and green.
