I have fallen in love with embroidery, especially embroidering little messages or sayings on pretty fabric. I made this one for a friend who is having a bit of a rough patch in her life at the moment. I thought a nice encouraging message written with bright colors might remind her to soldier on and bring a smile on her face. I "stole" this idea from the wonderful Muita Ihania -blog. It is well worth having a look at, she is a great maker and knitter (she also writes in English at least some of the time)!
The message in English is pretty much:
turn on the lights
wipe your tears
