Agita

I have been vibrating with anxiety, far from my new year's resolve to "enjoy." Cloth making has been adversely affected as I spend far too much time feverishly following Facebook.

Still, I did manage to stitch two plain pillows for our new couch ...


They were made from thrifted cotton/linen shirts and I'm now considering how they might be embellished ...


so they can better fit in with the Triangulation pillow that was my first Jude-inspired cloth-weaving adventure.

Meantime, 0ur daughter (who is expecting in April) brought G to our house for a sleepover ...


In spite of a tornado warning in the middle of the night, we got enough rest to find the energy for a trip to a new-to-us playground where G learned the gentle arts of swinging ...


pole-sliding ...



and public art appreciation ...



Which inspired a little home-grown creativity ...


Love the colors ...

Good Day Liz! The pillows are wonderful! You continue to inspire me with your creativity and passion. Megan looks wonderful. G will remember all these special moments with you and Don as you both encourage creativity and the beauty of art. Bless you and yours, dear friend.

Thanks Sue! We also went to listen to some live music last night and I could feel my shoulders relaxing, letting go some of the tension.

I had a first meeting with an indivisible group this week too! I'm hoping the structure and camaraderie will, besides foment positive change, assuage some of the daily waves of anxiety

Being in the company of like-minded souls was reassuring ... and I so appreciate not having to reinvent the wheel as the Indivisible guide contains easily do-able actions

What beautiful pillows. I decided last weekend that I want a stack of pillows on my bed. What an inspiration.

What a pretty park and it looks like such a fun day.

Thanks for sharing,

Hunter
