So, a little trip to the Midwest brought me back to my self. Its been a strange year with moving to Seattle, having a baby, trying to understand what we're supposed to be doing with our lives when our plans don't seem to be working out. My husband, Brett, and our son, Sebastian, flew to Missouri and spent the week with family and good friends and got away from the worry for awhile. We came home and found out our current weekend job as apartment managers would be ending next month which leads us closer to making decisions about our future but not like we expected. Needless to say, it was refreshing to be able to spend the weekend with my sweet friend, Elsie, and absorb the colors in her life. I'm feeling like art is the one thing in my life that I understand right now.
Sebastian has been the sweetest source of inspiration since his arrival on the 4th of July and helps brighten things up with our involved 'conversations' on the weather, construction on the Avenue, and his view from the swing.
I'm in the middle of a quilting fetish and have deconstructed about 6 pairs of jeans that were no longer useful in their existing state. I was inspired by a quilt I saw in a Smithsonian magazine about the ladies from Gee's Bend. I'm trying to see potential in garments as cloth and not just how they've served their purpose.
Resourceful of me, isn't it...
