On My Hoop

I am learning to embrace doing the things that I love and not feeling guilty about it.  Especially when it comes to spending money on them.

The other day, I went to an embroidering class at French General, to share stitching techniques with  creative artist, Pam Garrison.

I sat with four other like minded women and we stitched and chatted  for 5 hours.

It was healing to my soul and engaging for my spirit.

Needle and thread, often over looked as an art form.

Yet, I see art in “everything” around me.  The creative soul, its who I have longed to be….since….”forever.”

One of the greatest lessons cancer has taught me, is to engage in the things which bring me JOY.

It’s not selfish, it’s self-care.

This sampler might take me awhile, but I have time.
