Today marks a full week since I started the 31 Day Blogging Challenge, and I’m really happy I committed. The prompt to write really keeps me active in this process, which is great. I know that some people view blogs as a bit out-dated, but for me, it’s a great reference tool to check back on my work and the thoughts I was having while making each quilt. Very much like a journal.
Like a journal, my writing is a little personal – but sharing is important. I think we are all so similar, and when we read personal things about a someone, it helps us realize we are not that different from each other. We may have very different backgrounds and ideas… but emotions and stresses affect us all the same. Finding common ground is what we need right now, in more ways than one.
Yesterday I wrote about Cannabis, and I lost a couple of my very few followers. I realized that there will always be a stigmatism around that plant as long as people keep their minds closed. So… good! I don’t have time for that type of negativity, however… my goal is to cull more readers, not lose them.
Last night I did get a little sewing time in, and got a couple rows of hexies put together for my Hexie Hummingbird No.2. I stitched while watching the Ink Master Finale. Yeah… it’s a bad habit, but I do love tattoos, art, and social studies! It didn’t hurt that Ryan Ashley broke the glass ceiling in that regard, and became the first woman Ink Master! It was fun to watch with my daughter, who also loves tattoos, and looks up to strong women.
