#6 Fiber Art Threads of Gratitude

Fiber Art Threads of Gratitude express satisfying and joyful reminders of our connection to the Earth through the design of colorful weaving, quilting and other cultural artistic patterns that connect to our creative spirits.

I continue to work on my meditating yogini lady. This journey has continued for over a year and I’m determined to finish this month (or the next😊).

Hand stitching has been a metaphor for living these past few months. After leaving the Gee’s Bend Yoga Retreat in August 2019, every stitch was a gift of excitement, appreciation and preparation for a trip to India in December. Each stitch afterward up and down, in and out, was me stepping lively into the new year. By mid-March through now, I’ve ebbed and flowed with the highs and lows of living through a deadly pandemic. There’ve been when I could only look at my lady. Other times, I sit and stitching becomes meditative moments that lead to hours of inspiration, creative work and gratitude.
