It’s been a cozy weekend and as I am puttering around and mulling over writing a new post, I’m drawn to this older one I wrote just over 2 years ago. It’s about the practice of mending: fabric and emotions. It was published in Bunch Family and they even secured amazing photos by Karyn Valino to accompany the writing.
A couple of years makes a huge difference. These days, it’s very rare that I sit down to stitch up worn out knees or repair a ripped stuffed animal. Their toys tend to require more technical and less traditional support these days. Rain still destroys all of his clothes but he prefers to wear them ripped as a badge of honour.
So today this post is reflective at the realization of how life changes, within a stitch in time.
