I started making these selvage blocks in the last week or so. It's been an easy mindless sewing project. Honestly, with the sad news from Charleston, I just needed to stitch and grieve. While I am tender hearted, and tragic news always hurts, this one just felt like a punch in the gut. That's probably why I was unable to articulate anything about that event here. In my mind, carrying on with what gives me joy, and living a life of kindness, is the very best (and possibly only) way to truly honor those beautiful people who died so needlessly. I'm crying as I type and this post was supposed to be about stitching for comfort!
Anyway, I sewed and sewed and sewed. I was not able to comfort myself completely but I did get
some a LOT of selvage blocks made. Not enough for a whole quilt, but don't worry, I have plenty selvages left in the basket....
I'll just keep sewing. I hope you are doing something that brings you comfort and joy today!
Enjoy every stitch,
