Frederick Douglass Quote ~ in Alt Colors 2012

2/19/12   Yup, you’re spot on Torque, and thank you for mentioning it.  This is what comes from surfing the internet for quotes that one likes and assuming that a given attribution is correct.   It’s easy enough to  copy the last “s” and add another as there’s sufficient space to the right, but I’ll  redo the chart (and the original chart) and post corrections as soon as I can.   Until then, Stitchers please take note!    ~~ The 2012 edition is now corrected.  I’ll get to the 2011 edition tomorrow.


2/13/12 Sometimes I like to go back to a design and change things a bit.  Here is a 2011 design in new colors and new threads.  His message bears repeating.

Happy Stitching!    Happy Black History Month!

Stitch or paint in beautiful light. Talk in bed with my husband late at night and then go for an early breakfast... ie, have his total undivided attention, and luxuriate in it. Talk with our son without cell phones, ipods, etc at a family meal. Go to lunch with a friend and laugh till our sides hurt. Browse in a good library or bookstore. Go to the theater when both the play and the seats are good. Stay home and do absolutely nothing. Read on my Kindle! *~*~*~* ETHNICITY: Mixed-American Mutt of Irish (97%), Welsh, and many other slivers of ethnicity.

  1. Oops, that should be “note”!

  2. We miss you and hope you’ll be back soon. Yes, we’re still checking regularly to see if you’re here. We’d love just a not to let us know all is well.

  3. Haven’t “seen” you in a while; hope you are well and just busy or resting. 🙂

    • Hi Debbie,
      Thank you for writing! I’m fine but have been over-busy (in a good way) for the past few months. I’ll be posting some new designs shortly.

  4. This is a lovely and heartfelt sentiment, but for those who wish to recreate this, note that Frederick Douglass has two S’s in his name!
