The running stitch: a guide, a reminder, a thought-catcher #quilting

Leave a comment Standard

I sometimes fall into darkness and need a roadmap to guide my way out.

I find these roadmaps in gentle crafting, especially the act of the running stitch.


The act captures the dark thoughts.  It lightens me by its simple steps.


It is a metaphor for where I want to go and where I have been.


The stitches hold the dreams I have for my children.


Meditative simplicity.
