Find the Good and Praise It

Orange 2

Excellent advice.  Take a walk and feel the wind.  Be glad you can walk.  Take a deep breath and get through Thursday. 

This piece is the second in the Oranges series, experimenting with more stitching on a light background.  I’m still loving the colors, but the stems and leaves are in need of tweaking.  This kind of repetition, this slight variation on a theme, is comforting… when all else in my world seems fragile and unstable, fabric is strong, predictable, touchable.
