There should be photos of clothing made, conversations being had, meals (fabulous meals) being consumed, knitting machines whirring, photographers at work. Inspiration abounding.
There should be a way of capturing how special it is to immerse oneself in the gentle company of women you know (and hardly know or have never met), who are open to skill-sharing, tool sharing and time sharing in a calm sense of community.
There should be some way to thank life for making that possible, and family, for releasing one (just for a little bit) from the bind that is a distration from life itself sometimes. Don’t get me wrong – I LOVE my family, but sometimes the constant buzz of need/fulfilling needs makes for a busy head and no time to quietly experiment. I do need to quietly experiment.
These scraps are the sweepings after a busy weekend spent at Sewjourn with some wholly amazing and very inspiring company. I love how what is left shows who was there and a hint at what they took away. Thank you ladies for a wonderful weekend. It was bliss. 🙂
