The Crazy Mumble Jumble

Evan and I just watched Season 3, Episode 1 of the Great British Sewing Bee.
 He was especially interested because one of the main sewers is an Army man!
So interested that he set it up himself on the I-pad for us to watch..
My only job was the cuddle.
Here I soothe crazy thoughts by starting a bit of my Swedish flag quilt...Thank you Tula!!
One of the University workshops I attended last week was by my friend Margaret.
.She did a great bit on her practice in Soul Collage.
 Out came the scissors and glue sticks and pages from magazines...
.Out came our creativity in our attempts to shut off our mind...
Since my mind goes 100 miles per hour night and day, that was a huge struggle.
We shared with a partner, let the card we created speak to us.
It was fun...but really...more than fun.
My two cards have haunted me ever since.
 I'll let you all do the interpreting of feelings.

Evidently I have complicated grief with my husband and mother dying 11 months apart.
...And,my not being able to grieve my mother with my husband's illness and death so hard...
Not too mother is watching over me now:
And so it goes...with still exhausted me trying to figure out life.
A shout out to Aunt Brandy for going the second mile
......with 6 kids and two infected root canals..
The children had a wonderful time.

The last year would have been a grizzly bear for any one to live through, absorb, process. Be kind to yourself.

I'll second what Beth said, she says it perfectly in her comment. I like the beginning of your swedish flag quilt. I like the way your role in watching TV was cuddling.

Card number 2 I am a unicorn beautiful and spry. I will fly right over that nasty bear trying to bring me down.

Card number 1. I might be looking down on the cold unfriendly world right now, but just over my shoulder I know the grass is green. Take care of you!!
