make something awesome

Vivika Hansen DeNegre, the super creative wizard editor of Quilting Arts Magazine, sent me a little creative treat in the mail a couple of weeks ago. 

She put together mini stitching packs and with the hashtag #makesomethingawesome written on the packaging.

Ok! Challenge accepted!

The fabric was roughly the size of the stitch meditations I’ve been making so I decided to go with that size.

First I laid it out similar to how Vivika had it pinned together in the original package. I stitched a straight line from corner to corner to create an X to hold everything in place.

Then I snipped and rearranged and added some additional stitching to create a more organic feel.

This is the final result.

There is so much to be said for working small. It feels like a private conversation and the portability of it can’t be beat. 

As a follow up to my last post – thank you for the love and for sharing your personal experiences. I feel as if I’m inching a little bit closer to some closure. I decided last week to cut my hair into a pixie style. 

I have been letting it grow out, thinking I would let it get back to what it was prior to cancer and chemo. The truth is that hair after chemo isn’t the nicest texture. It’s a weird combination of frizz, curl and wiry. I realized I don’t have to put up with it so I cut all that crap off.

Now when I look in the mirror everyday I no longer have a constant visual reminder of chemo. I didn’t realize how much it was bugging me until they were gone. So one more thing let go. Healing continues! Love you all!
