I haven't seen much sewing time this weekend, besides more birthday crown making, but I did finished my newest, little mini quilt. It's made up from the scraps left over from my Fly A Kite Pillows and what I had left over from that gorgeous Fly A Kite fabric stack. All that's left now are a few scraps and these three...
I kept with the Kite theme again for this project. I am noticing a trend here with some of my projects -- the quilt I made for my sister, my last mini, and on our new aprons. Several years ago, I went through a dream analysis phase after having the same recurring dream for a few months. I was in a field of calla lilies, wearing white, flying a kite. The wind kept changing from calm to strong and I kept holding on. Of course, I had to learn all about it!
I learned that to dream of flying can symbolize a desire to be free from problems and enjoy a more carefree and adventurous lifestyle. The kite symbolizes the same connotations, a desire to be free in your life, except in a more controlled way. Just as a kite is tethered by a string, you fly, but can never let go completely.
Since my sharing post a few weeks back, I've gone through some major ups and downs. I've wanted to share an update here, but decided to wait until I have it all figured out. I've been feeling like that kite for a while now, flying against the wind, getting further away as the wind gets stronger. Well, a week from today I'm headed to Hershey Medical Center here in Pa. Where I'm hoping to finally get all the answers. So many of you have been sending me sweet messages and prayers, I appreciate it all so much. Thank you! I am feeling much better this week, and you may have noticed -- I'm staying extra busy and very motivated to keep on creating! Many thanks to all of you!
Today, I'm wishing you all a wonderful, healthy, and productive start to your own week!! ♥ Maureen
