I am struggling to Keep Up at the Moment

Here is a quote that landed in my inbox this morning and I find so comforting and profound at the moment


"To sew is to pray. Men don't understand this. They see the whole but they don't see the stitches. They don't see the speech of the creator in the work of the needle. We mend. We women turn things inside out and set things right. We salvage what we can of human garments and piece the rest into blankets. Sometimes our stitches stutter and slow. Only a woman's eyes can tell. Other times, the tension in the stitches might be too tight because of tears, but only we know what emotion went into the making. Only women can hear the prayer." ~ LOUISE ERDRICH, Four Souls


I am feelling stressed getting all Tamara's art work done and together in her folio for assessment at the end of the month so there is little time for my own creativity and that is where I come unstuck.
