A few years ago, I started a stitching project to soothe my heart as we walked through Alzheimer’s disease with mom. I finished that piece about a year ago and it hangs in my kitchen. I put notes and cards in the pockets that remind me to be grateful for family and friends.
This morning, I pulled out a packet of kimono fabrics and some linen that have been patiently waiting in my stash to see if I might find inspiration for a stitching project. Life around here has been wobbly for more than a few months. It feels a bit like being in a pong game with many zigs and zags. So I am returning to fabric and thread to create new stitched prayers. My new project will not be daily – I am working to be realistic and committing to daily projects will not bring me the peace and joy I am seeking.
