Sewing Therapy


Friendship is sewn with love and measured by kindness.


Some days call for quiet and a little peacefulness. Today was such a day. With the excitement and frenzy of the elections, emotions have been running high and low. They were the topic on every one's mind at the beauty shop today. From the young to the old, everyone had a different perspective and opinion on the history that was made this week. Although it was fun to discuss opinion and listen to perspective, a quiet afternoon doing something relaxing seemed the best way to unwind. My fabric stash was inviting. I decided it was time to work with fabrics I loved; cottons in prints of pink and brown. There's something ultimately soothing and relaxing about working with textiles. Such cozy comfort in sometimes chaotic world.

    Thank you for the post, LaDonna. I like your pink very much. And you know what? I was working on an apron, putting the pattern on my material here in the opposite side of the world!

    Enjoy sewing! I will, too!
