Some time and with Beads
April was my last post and now it is June. I still haven't really sewn anything, fabric no longer holds the seduction that it once did for me. But a couple of months ago I was overcome with the desire to make something and I had a dream about a making a bracelet. So I got out my beads, beads I haven't touched in over twenty years! And start beading like a mad woman. So far I've made at least six or eight of these bracelets. One I've given away as a birthday gift. Another is slated to be given as a hostess thank you gift. I'm still fooling around with the beads. I want to sell them on ETSY, but feel that I need to make little bags for them, but that will require sewing, so I may have to try to buy something instead.
I am trying to figure out what sewing represents to me and why it is so unappealing for me. For so many years it has been a corner of my life that I could safely retreat to and feel that I had total control over what I made.
