Pour this Sun Goddess a tall one, on the rocks, plz. Slow stitching my way through the week and exploring textures on my hand dyed fabrics. Wish I could think of something more clever to caption for this pose. 🤷🏽♀️ #indigo dyed linen, hand stitched with white #sashiko thread from @freemanscreative
One of my favorite simple pleasures: observing how life ebbs and flows. (Story time:) Last year I had the privilege of traveling somewhere almost every 3 weeks, it left me a bit burn out from leaving my weekender bag partially packed for 7 months, but I loved every second of it! After I returned from Penland for 3 weeks in the fall of 2017, I decided I wasn’t leaving Durham for a while, mainly due to travel fatigue and the uptick in my work schedule with holiday markets. I quickly geared up for staying in town, but was still packing up my car for 2 events every weekend for 8 weeks in Nov. & Dec. No joke, I needed a good two months of hibernation after all that! March slowly poked its head out of the winter gloom and I realized I hadn’t left Durham in 5 months and I NEEDED to get out of the bubble. I quickly applied to some work opportunities out of the state, including visiting ALT for a work/friend visit earlier this month. I said out-load to a few people, “I want to got up to New York.” Luckily, manifesting opportunities works really well when I’m putting myself out there (and with the help of friends)! Su, a dear friend and owner of @sujukbrooklyn, invited me to host a pop-up in Clinton Hill while she went on a working vacation. 🦄Um, YES. Now as I chill on this sunny morning in Bed-Stuy, all I can think of is how I wished for this and now I’m here.🌅🍾 So here’s to fresh spring blossoms and realizing I’m getting what I wanted because opportunity caught me working. Celebrating the power of friendship, teamwork, and self-care today and everyday! 🌸🌸🌸🌸🌸🌸🌸 thanks to @thefacesblur for being the best adventure partner (6 years running this spring 💝🦄).
Repost from @axandapple and her perfect tribute to #420. Sending out relaxing, sunshine vibes today and everyday!
First day shop sitting at @sujukbrooklyn in #clintonhill - all moved in and set-up for the week long #popup with Vulva Plushies, jewelry, vintage clothing (a huge selection of denim!), and more! Excited to start my #slowstitching residency project. Actively staying off social media for the rest of the day- wish me luck 😅
