I've been futzing around trying to decide what things to put on my list for 2009 - big quilts or little quilts or both, and how many. Before long I found myself looking at my quilting books and then working on these little blocks. They were called Emiko's Lace Star in Sally Collins' Small Scale Quiltmaking. After I finished making four of them, I thought "Now what?" I've decided that "now" is my word for 2009, I didn't realize that I would calling on it so soon - ha! Opens up all kinds of doors - now what?, now how?, and I suppose not now!
Back to Now what? I considered coasters or ornaments but wasn't inspired. I found Sally Collin's website and looked at her gallery page and found my answer - pincushions. They'll be about 4-inches square.
The practice today seems simple enough - Take three slow, deep, conscious breaths. The catch, of course, is in the conscious part because while doing so you're suppose to accept everything about yourself. Everything you are, feel and do.
Boy, can my left brain race between breaths, busy negotiating accept as in embracing with favor or just kind of reconciled with... I'll just keep have to keep breathing (until I work it all out.)
