I have been quilting for years, but never created anything for them. So as a gift, I just went for it. I put aside my qualms about time, perfection, and decided, it is a gift, to them (and to me - ha, i got to create, :)) from my heart. let it be nothing more, nothing less.
So often in the past, I get my knickers in a knot, thinking that I should be focusing on something else, a piece for a show, for a customer; that there must be a productive purpose to what I am doing. But I am beginning to practice more and more, self-care and experiencing the therapy of Flow. Taking the time to create, to be thoroughly in the moment as I am creating (Flow) provides numerous benefits in all areas of life.
And of course, there is Sadie, my other important therapy. We just love her. Here is Thomas with the sweetie.
May you make a connection with your Flow and therapeutic beings in your life. It adds so much to you.
