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!

    Hello Lynn – Wandering through your site. Just FYI, I clicked on this post for June and when it takes me to the full page post, it doesn’t show the photos. Jus that weird tiny blue square icon that you see when photo is missing. I’m on a Mac and using Safari. I can see the photos on your blog post initial link page, but not the full page.

      It’s one of the posts that got transferred over from the old site, I’ll have to see if I can fix it. Thanks!
