Energy, voting, Needles, pins and gratitude

so much going on, every minute is spoken for……………  gratitude for all the energy I am experiencing, it knows no bounds

May 7th is looming close, not liking any of the choices, but certainly feel strongly the need to vote.  I am a woman and many of my ancestors would have given anything to have the right to vote, to help make change, to have choices.  I am in two minds about all this, but at this time we all need to make a stand, SO PLEASE all women out there unite, we are a force to be reckoned with, if we don’t do something this feudal system we are living under will remain, we need to change, we need a fairer society.

That said, my creativity has now journeyed to the sewing machine, although still knitting, inspired by Purl Soho and their beautiful wools http://www.purlsoho.com/purl  now its progressed to the sewing machine needles !!  and embroider needles again.  Embroidered   my shirt and made Two dresses and a summer  coat , patterns courtesy of  http://merchantandmills.com/  The coat is  a kantha style embroider bedcover !

Amongst all this I am embroidering, just love the work of http://yumikohiguchi.com/gallery2   I would like to embroider a panel on a winter’s coat, yet to be made !

Have been to see SAVAGE BEAUTY, it was overwhelming and I shed tears, all very emotional

Gratitude, for the energy to create, for the gifts of sensitivity that enables me to keep an ear to the soul !

what to do next

Another day of sitting, 5 more weeks I have been told, I am so missing just stepping out and walking in nature.  It is so tantalizingly close, I can see the green of the common the skeletal trees, some with a few leaves still clinging, people walking their dogs and I am sitting down with my leg up

What to do next?  yesterday played with photoshop, today I thought I would have a go at embroidering myself something, a small purse for my special things, tomorrow, well that’s another day !!
