i’m not sure why i seem to forget how much joy and peace sewing gives to me.  especially this time of the year.  after a crazy busy summer and fall season i am enjoying a little bit of a respit.  funny things have been calming my life.  like getting the house clean, i mean really clean, for the first time in months.  having almost all of the laundry done on a regular basis.  engaging with my amazing kids in a real way for more than five minutes at a time.  and enjoying hobbies that get pushed to the side during the busy days.  like sewing.  fabric therapy i like to call it!

i love the fell of the different textures.  the hum of the machine.  watching a blanket come together piece by piece then seeing my kids wrap themselves up in the coziness.  or throw together a few neck warmers for photographer friends with strained necks and backs!

and more than all else i love getting back to a slower rhythm.  i thrive on the mock 3 rhythm of the summer and fall, but my body and mind and soul need this few weeks of the year when i can take a deep breath and truly appreciate all of the blessings in my life!  now back to the machine…
