Sewing in my life

With all the Sewing Party talk, I thought I would examine home stitching in my every day life. Here is my outfit from Sunday — a yo-yo necklace and matching headband. My purse is also home stitched.

If I were to make the yo-yo necklace again, I’d attach the chain to make a narrower opening — between the center and white yo-yo’s, instead of the outer edge of the outermost yo-yo’s. As it is now, the bib wants to fold in the center. Maybe my neck is smaller than average; I’ve had similar issues before.

I asked my youngest if I could wear her headband because it matches the yo-yo necklace. Being older, I feel that most of the time, I shouldn’t be calling attention to my headwear, opting for more grown-up  headbands in tan, brown, and black. But hey, it’s sunny out for once! Time to celebrate with a little color.

I am also wearing a dream catcher bracelet. In my dedication to the Lakota people whom I had the honor of serving last August, I like to wear it in public and private to remind myself of sacrifices and privileges, needs and wants, simple and overdone lifestyles. It was handmade by someone (not me).
