La soffitta del tempo perduto...

....è là , nella mente e nel sogno, dove è possibile recuperare le speranze e le aspettative, dove volere è potere e tutto diviene possibile, dove la fantasia e la creatività non vengono strangolate dai ritmi di una vita frenetica ed il tempo scorre lentamente, dove la mente vola libera senza restrizioni, dove finalmente si è liberi di essere e ci si può rifugiare e prendere un respiro.

The attic of the lost there, in the mind and dreams, where is possible to recover the hopes and the expectations, where what you want is what you can and everything becomes possible, where fantasy and creativity are not strangled from the rhythms of a phrenetic life and time flows slowly, where the mind flyes free with no restrictions, where finally one is free of being and can refuge in and take a breath.

Francesca Quaker Sampler after five years.

When I released the Quaker Sampler chart in 2010 I could have never imagined how many people all around the world will have decided to stich it also considering that is a such a long and time consuming work !
After five years, this chart is still very in use and the page where is possible to download it has been visited by....32609 !! people.What a number ! and what a satisfaction !
Here are just few pics of the so many different colourways that people have used to make their own special piece.
A big thanks goes to all this persons who have invested their time and patience to make it real !
As you all know, I'm now focused on different kinds of embroidery but still makes me proud to see all this samplers coming to life :)
