I know I have been posting a lot about my anxiety as of late; all of the macro stuff has been weighing heavily upon me this past month. I’m not sure if anyone really wants to hear about it, but it feels important for me to talk about it, for this space to remain something more than a marketing device. I think of this blog as a piece of the community, not just as a means to push product. Hell, that is one of the macro issues that I worry about a lot…
Anyway, those macro issues have come from all of this becoming a business, but they are not why I do what I do. This is, this quilt that I am starting today:
This will be the second twin quilt I do for Bee, for when she moves up to her big-girl bed. I like the design, but really it is all about the reason. You see, about a week ago Bee and I were holding hands while walking to the coffee shop down the street. Abruptly, she stopped and pointed at the shadow we cast upon the sidewalk and proclaimed rather excitedly, “We are an H, Papa!!!”
Not only do I love that she has started using shadows to form letters (she also likes making Ms with Mama, Papa, and her), but I simply adore the way she phrased it. We didn’t make an H, we are an H. Hence, this quilt. It is us. And I love her more than words could ever begin to express.
And that is why I do this…
