I hope you weren’t expecting to see a third – successful – attempt to start Soyokaze 🙂 I did wind that mess of yarn into a neat ball, but that’s all that’s happened with that project since yesterday. maybe tomorrow I’ll have a good (un) unraveled story to share!
But for today, I have two tiny moments … that tell a different part of the story I’d like to remember about what’s happening in my life right now.
I joked with Kym last week that this blog seemed to be morphing into mere-et-feets. and I wouldn’t blame y’all for rolling your eyes at one more reminder that I broke a bone in my foot, was in a cast for six weeks, blah blah blah… but I needed every bit of encouragement you poured over me. and I felt it again this morning as I walked with Lauren – on the greenway, a flat level surface 🙂 – and glimpsed a bit of my familiar self.
My second tiny moment happened this afternoon. and it shows part of a new self. a self who – thanks in large part to those six weeks in a cast – has learned to sew again. a self who has learned to ease in sleeves without puckers. That’s my 3rd Esmé with sleeves – and the first one where I was confident enough (and knew enough) to ignore her instructions. yep, the key to the eased sleeves is to run the gathering stitches between the notches, not the dots!
Here’s to Tuesday! and all the tiny moments that tell bigger stories.
