It was a rainy day here in Melbourne. Nothing like the beautiful 30 degree sunny day we had yesterday. (Thats 86 degrees faranheit for all my American readers!)
I took a day off packing up my house to do some sewing. I pulled out a gorgeous quilt I had cut out for my daughter a few months ago.
Thats all I had completed. I still have to make 3 more squares like that one and join them all. It will end up looking like a big snowflake.
Sewing enables me to lose myself for a while. I can concentrate on making my sewing straight, following the pattern and getting everything correct.
I also use my Creative time to reflect on things that are going on in my life. I have had so much stress, anxiety and upset lately. The crap going on at work, relationship issues and moving house. Honestly I feel things have started to settle down.
Although I had loads of things swilling around in my head. Whilst I can seem calm and serene on the outside, there can be a hurricane of emotions swirling around, today the thoughts weren’t racing like they do some days.
However my thoughts were all over the place, I had someone on my mind and I am convinced in this situation, that is because they are thinking of me too. We have energy connections with people and they can be extremely strong bonds. When you have spent a lot of time with someone you connect with them energetically and create energetic cords with them. I won’t know if this is the case today though as I am not longer in contact with this person. However it gave me a few hours comfort remembering loads of special times we shared and imagining they were thinking of me too.
I worked on the quilt for a good four hours. The enjoyment I get from watching something I am creating come to life or start looking like it should is such a satisfying feeling. I am halfway through now, which is an awesome achievement.. my thoughts weren’t ordered in the same fashion though, definitely no precision there, unlike my sewing.. LOL
