First prototype of hand warmers. Broke a needle in the process- learning new things 😂 (like ditching antique lace on these altogether). #philosophy #arm #warm #cozy #winter #gloves #mittens #fingerlessgloves #sewing #lace #elegant turquoise #mermaid #poetry #seamstress #weave #spider #brrr .
I’m gonna tangent into my philosophers mind for second: mastery of self and craft is a delicate balance. As in sewing, if the tension is too high, the string will snap. Eventually you’ll just have a mess of strings going nowhere fast- an unsewn mend waiting to be healed.
A string too slack, and the stitches will not hold; the garment will loose itself upon the world and fall to pieces.
Life is a delicate balance of that push / pull ; yin / yang. The string is YOU- the base thread, the essence. The fabric is your canvas: the infinite potential unfolding. .
What will you weave from the myriad of choice before you? A-slack and loose life, where tension is necessary for growth; or a tension so taut it will make you and others snap?
Or... a middle way, path of least resistance; an allowance and faith that with the right pressure on the string and speed on a petal, you can craft anything?
The magic sauce to life is love; weave your story with its threads and everything will mend and sew itself back together.
