Many of my designs are from ideas from work I have done in the past with beading and needlework handed down since I was very young and from friends asking me for special gifts for someone or for holiday gifts. Being taught mostly of the woodland natives designs, a lot of my designs in squares come from that through my bead-work. I also sit with needle in hand, and somewhere things begin to happen and designs appear from nowhere and something new begins. Its very interesting what can happen when you put tools into your hands. I love FP (front posts) and BP (back posts), they make very interesting designs, and they seem to make things pop out at the least expected time, as does outlining designs as we do in bead work, and I do use a lot of them in my designs. I use the outlining technique is a few of my original patterns as edgings. The title of the book comes from the past being handed down and for it to be handed on to the future of the family to treasure.
