Each of us has a precise number of people to whom (s)he is grateful and, frankly, we think that the bigger this number, the happier our life.
So, just for once, let us use this space to show all our gratitude to a person who, for us (but also for a lot of you) is a very special one: Marie-Thérèse Saint-Aubin.
We want to thank her here, in public, and assuming the responsibility to make her blush a bit (as we are sure it will happen when she reads this post), since that, as all authentically genial people, this Madame is innately, pleasantly and genuinely modest. Here is an episode about Marie-Thérèse we want to tell you as to motivate our gratitude to her.
Everything began some weeks ago when one of you wrote to us to ask for an alphabet of roses designed some years ago by Marie-Thérèse for a famous French magazine which nowadays is not published anymore. For such a reason it's impossible to find this chart. Since this designer is our friend, we directly contacted her on this matter in order to ask her if it were possible to find this chart somewhere… And her, voilà
, in 48 hours she published this chart on her website as a free, downloadable and open file
Without talking too much on the meaning of a very generous act like this one (we cannot forget that artists live for and thanks to their art and publishing any design, without pretending any right on it, but for free, is not a plain thing. We need to underline this!), we want to thank Marie-Thérèse for her "silent lesson" of elegance and for her deep passion that a free action shows in a very evident and comprehensible way
THANK YOU Marie-Thérèse because those who had the pleasure to meet you in person, like us, can easily imagine the sweet smile with which you published online this fruit of your genius and for the priceless joy you will give to us while embroidering it!
And, to all of you who decides to use it, just click and have fun with the embroidery!HERE IS THE ABECEDAIRE REDOUTE
A big hug
