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,
I always stitch when I am upset too--it is therapy! Being productive is a good way to honor the tragic lose. Hang in there!ReplyDelete
I know what you mean about stitching for comfort. I did plenty of stitching in the weeks and months after Hurricane Katrina and the floods. I had not thought of using selvedges for a modified log cabin; I have a huge stash of selvedges just waiting for the right inspiration!ReplyDelete
Tears are all part of the process..... Sometimes they are the comfort too.ReplyDelete
I was very chocked and sad when I saw this tragedy on TV.....sometimes, crying is a real comfort and nobody must be ashamed with that!ReplyDelete
The patchwork is helping us in these moments ...fortunately :)
What a touching post. We all felt kicked in the gut. You will always remember sewing these blocks.ReplyDelete
