I do like the kind of shop that carries one item in several sizes
and a hundred different colors;
as soon as I opened my shop I realized mine wouldn't be one of them.
I need to change gears, if an activity starts to feel automatic to me, I have to change,
I need to click my refresh button!
Lately I have changed from sewing machine to hand sewing,
making hand-quilted mini quilts is kind of meditative, and that fits me well.
As the end result goes, I do love the texture and the little "imperfections",
the stitches are never gone be all the same size, the symmetry might be slightly off,
and that is what makes a piece so unique.
I will still use the same subdued colors, the same natural fiber fabrics,
but the technique will change from time to time, and that will keep me going!
