“I do enough, I have enough, I am enough. All is well.” ” That’s how my yoga teacher starts off each class,” Susan wrote to me.
Susan sent one of my I Am Enough posters to her teacher and I’ve adopted that mantra.
At night, when I can’t sleep, I close my eyes, put my hand on my belly to feel my breath move in and out, and repeat those words over and over. Sometimes, I imagine writing them with my sewing machine. The grand up-swoop of the cursive “I” the repetitive mounds of the “m”.
This morning as I was packing my “Hope” quilt into its box, I noticed I had only three potholders in my Etsy Shop and decided to spend some time this week making more. But I also noticed how the three potholders I did have went so well with some of my magnets and postcards.
It’s the curator in me that wanted to see them together.
So I arranged them on the floor and took some pictures.
They make a nice little package I thought. And remembered how Jody bought one of my magnets and a Flying Vulva decal as part of a gift for a friend who was turning 50.
I’ll have some new Intuitive Patchwork Potholders in my shop sometime next week. Until then I do have it stocked with reproductions of my fiber art in a few different forms. With each order, I send one of my Shield of Words Postcards and an Owl Woman sticker.
And I’ll leave you with a message from Stephanie about Mary Kellogg’s book This Time Of Life. A five-star review in my opinion…
“I received Mary’s book a couple of days ago and was moved to tears by her poems. Please tell her thank you from me and how very much I could relate to them.” Stephanie
