Woowoo!

Matchstick Moons #2

While I was out shopping and lunching with Tommy yesterday, a phone call came from Houston . The message said that MM#2 has won a cash award at the International Quilt Festival. Woowoo! I don't know how much because it was too late to call last night when I got home and too early to call before I blogged this morning. Nevertheless I am blabbing the news anyway!

As usual in my sick little mind, it is more of a relief not to be ignored than it is to have won actual cash. Have no fear I will take the cash, but if the quilt I am proudest of making this year does well in a huge show like IQA then I can feel I am still in the game. Phew!

To celebrate today I will pay the bills and wash and iron out the fabric that is still waiting from last week. Then I will mail off Matchstick Moons #1 to the Pacific International show for provide that necessary midmonth stress and anxiety. I wouldn't want to go out on a limb and predict anything for that piece, but it is the original and still the best. Not as refined and planned out as the subsequent ones, but to me that is its appeal. This will be its first contest.

Matchstick Moons #1

Tommy and I had two opportunities to hand out our business cards thus proving to unsuspecting strangers how 'famous' we are. One of them took our picture and I am willing to bet it will be seen here.
Did I mention that we were shopping as part of our day together? Yarn, Yarn, and more yarn, and most of it dyeable white. Um, like a dozen skeins of aran weight, over 450 yards each. I am cornering the market.

Well, and then a rug, and two sweaters from TJMaxx...

  1. Congratulations! I loved MM#1 so if the newer ones are even better it is no wonder it won a prize!

  7. The MM quilts get more beautiful every time I see them. Having been privelged enough to have seen them in person, I know how absolutely luminous they are. Deep and rich and meticulous and thoughtful. They envelope the space that one is in and transports the viewer to another level. I love them way way too much for inanimate objects. I'm sorry if my spelling is all wrong in this post, but you know what I'm talking about.

    I know that you will spend that prize money in a couple of places...more yarn to dye and more swanky Goodwill sweaters to unravel and knit socks out of. Right?

    Everyone has days when they are down, worn out, attacking anxiety and just not feeling all that happy.

    That's OK, you need to have days like this, otherwise how would you know when you are happy. You need to have something to contrast your happiness with. What is black without white?

    Even though you know that sadness (attacking anxiety) is a part of life, let's try to make it a small part of life.

    With that said, here are a few tips to help you feel better when you are feeling down in the dumps. They are easy to do, easy to practice every day and they work!

    1. Stand up straight, sit up straight. When your body is in alignment your energy can flow and when your energy is flowing freely, you can flow.

    2. Smile! Yes, just smile. Easy to do and effective.

    3. Repeat positive affirmations. Things like "I feel good", "Positive energy flows through my body", "I see the good in all".

    4. Listen to some music that you like. It doesn't have to be anything specific, just something you enjoy. Certain types of music work better than others, but experiment and see what works for you. Studies have shown that Classical music and new age music work best.

    5. Take some time out for yourself, relax and read a book, do something for yourself.

    6. Meditate. Meditation is an excellent habit to develop. It will serve you in all that you do. If you are one who has a hard time sitting still, then try some special meditation CDs that coax your brain into the meditative state. Just search for "Meditation music" on Google or Yahoo and explore.

    Our outside work is simply a reflection of our inside world. Remember there is no reality just your perception of it. Use this truth to your advantage. Whenever you are sad, realize that it is all in your mind and you do have the power to change your perception.

    These tips will lift you up when you are down, but don't just use them when you are sad or attacking anxiety . Try and practice them everyday, make them a habit. You will be surprised at how these simple exercises will keep the rainy days away.

    On a final note, if you are in a deep depression that you can't seem to shake, please go see a doctor. This is your life and don't take any chances. attacking anxiety
