The other night, after I had the awful dream, I was laying in bed and heard…
There’s a garden
in my heart
grows away my tears.
…then I thought and my loneliness and fears. I didn’t have much time the next morning when I went into my studio, our plans had changed and we were leaving a day early for our Thanksgiving trip to Vermont. I had just enough time to make the outline of the tree. It’s what I felt like drawing, it made me feel better.
I didn’t have a chance to get back to my studio till this morning. I usually don’t work on Saturdays, but I had a great urge to finish this piece. I had seen the pattern for the sun in a tablecloth during dinner at the Inn where we stayed. Once I saw the pattern, I knew where the sun would go and I couldn’t wait to stitch it there. For once, the sun came out just as I imagined it. I finished off the leaves and other details on the tree and changed the word tears to fears. Because that’s what this piece is really about.
