Why We Do What We Do
Do you ever go through a crafting dry spell (say, the length of a physically and emotionally rough first trimester...) and then when you finally sit back down to your sewing machine/yarn/pencil/camera/whatever your craft of choice may be, and, finally, with it back in your hands, you think, oh yeah. This is me.
Whenever I don't have the energy to make, it's because I've forgotten that making is what gives me the energy. Creating is what drives our humanity. The rest is just surviving.
More on this project when I've got it all done, but I have to say that the easy freehand nature of the quilting is so soothing and meditative. I highly recommend.
