I Love This!

Cannabis Quilting

I love everything about this.
Beginning July 1, 2015, it will be legal to use cannabis recreationally in Oregon.
I currently have a medical card, but it’s still very exciting – even historical!

I began making a quilt at the fall PMQG retreat last October with every intention of quilting a big ole cannabis leaf on it. I’m calling it the Green Cross Quilt… and I’m loving it so far!

It’s not finished yet, but I was able to use a long arm machine at Just Quilting earlier today to do this quilting. There is a bit more to do, and then the binding – but I should finish it just in time to commemorate the big occasion. The results of this quilting adventure is making me so happy! I keep petting the quilt…

Cannabis helps me sleep, and helps with my nausea… and changes my perspective a bit when I start to become negative. Yes, it can make me sleepy sometimes, but that’s about the worst side effect I’ve had. It also helped me kick a few addictions that were truly bad for me.

Beyond medicinal and recreational use, hemp is a fast-growing natural resource for paper, clothing and fuel. In fact, Americans used to be able to pay their taxes in hemp! more…

Obviously I am pro-plant. How about you?
