When the going gets tough, the tough get sewing!
At least that was what was going on here in the studio in an effort to avoid what was going on with election coverage.
I did my part. I voted with my heart and then I turned everything off and did what I needed to do through the day.
Watching the results doesn’t CHANGE the results at that point. It just gets ME all twisted up in knots.
I believe in the American people. I believe in the process. I may not respect the people in office, but I will respect the office and hold on to my hope for a better future ahead.
At this point, it is out of my hands. I voted. And now we turn to each other as neighbors, friends, relatives, citizens and we try to heal the division and focus once again on WE the PEOPLE.
WE are no longer blue nor red. WE are no longer elephants or donkeys. We are AMERICANS. We come from hearty hardworking stock. We will survive.
And hopefully at some point we will more than survive, we will THRIVE because we won’t give up.
Even if you sew things upside down!
Life might FEEL upside down right now and things aren’t going to happen over night. The dust will settle, the sun will rise and we will find a way to get back on track. Yesterday wasn’t the END, it was just the beginning. We need to stay active in what we believe is right. We need to see each other as individuals. Not groups. Not denominations, ethnicities, political parties, white collar, blue collar, educated, uneducated –we need to stop the labeling and see each other eye to eye, heart to heart.
I’ve somehow lost the top rectangle for this one.
Has any body seen it?
I don’t have more of this fabric to finish it.
Maybe I’ll just find something close and be done with it.
Only 3 more needed.
Tonight. I’ll sew them tonight.
Today and tomorrow are going to be spent here at home, Friday ---off to Utah and a family reunion!
Quiltville Quote of the Day!
Keep the faith. The most amazing things in life tend to happen right at the moment you're about to give up hope.
Virginia Reel quilt made by me back in 1990 something. If I remember correctly there was political upheaval happening then too.
We survived, life went on and so will we now.
Have a great Wednesday, everyone.
