flowers and basket


Almost have the center done! Had to share because it is exciting to be getting closer to completion.

I've started following a new blog. The person who writes this blog is an art therapist and I am enjoying reading her techniques for dealing with life's difficulties. She and I share food challenges. People who know me now would probably never guess that at one point I was bulimic and anorexic. I obviously still have not conquered my food issues but I do keep trying. I have often been told that journaling is a great way to deal with these issues but the thought of writing about it just seemed to boring and mundane to me. On her blog turning*turning she shares some of her journal pages which include lot's of sketches. A light bulb went off for me, I could do that! She also made a small art quilt that looks like Cold Stone Founder's favorite rather than eat the cold stone founder's favorite. I could do that too! Makes the process a little more enjoyable, and who doesn't need more joy in their life. So, watch for some therapeutic quilts in my future. I promise not to bore you with the details on why I made the quilt.

Have a creative day.

Love your flowers and basket. It looks so optimistic.

Thanks for the link to turning*turning. What a great idea! Make a quilt about dessert rather than eating dessert!
