We are so excited to share with you our newest hoop-art embroidery pattern, The Deseret Drifter Floral Embroidery Sampler. The Deseret is a term we hear in the west often. It is associated with the values of hard work, perseverance, inspired vision and strength. The name of this pattern, the Deseret Drifter came to me one night as I was journaling.
I love reality journals, you know the journals we scribble our hopes and goals into, our honest failures and glimpses of the paths we trudge along to a better way. The word "drifter" gives me the image of someone who is trying to stay on a path, but often walks through other "creative" paths. I am for sure a drifter. I can never stay on one straight or sure path at a time. As much as I can imagine and dream, so many different paths call to me.
I trust myself and the paths I drift to. I have had to learn to trust myself in the absence of parents or stable guides. I am a Deseret Drifter. I love to dream inspired visions and I love to work along with my husband to see them happen. Some do and sometimes the path changes along the way. No matter where we drift with trust in ourselves, each other and God, we always find a more beautiful dream than what we had hoped for.
