Person I would have sent it to: Micah F., one of the good friends from elementary school.
I grew up in rural/suburban Indiana. It wasn’t an easy childhood once I hit middle school. (Did any of us have good experiences in middle school?) The friends I did have were key to, um, surviving it.
Music I listened to while sewing: The soundtrack for the movie Amelie. (The full title is The Fabuleux Destin D’Amelie Poulain; isn’t that awesome!) I consider it one of the most visually beautiful movies made. The color composition, the whimsy of it all, how BEAUTIFUL Paris is… Every time I watch it, or even listen to the soundtracl, I just want to swoon.
Thoughts/Feelings behind the block: Started a side project this week, and I’m proud to report I’m making good progress. A friend paid me to make a quilt of cats; the pattern isn’t completely original, which I’m sad to report. But it’s turning out well!
I’m learning the vital importance of having hobbies these days.
