You can read more about how I made it on a previous post from last March, here. As for the personal meaning for me? I was nearing the end of a long period of grieving and wondering if I should stop quilting. I had decided to sew up all the fabric I had into quilts (the Stashbuster project), and then quit. Or maybe quit? I didn't know where I was going. I felt lost. I also felt like I was over the hill, falling. The metaphor of these beads falling off a string, not knowing where they were going to land fit me perfectly!
And, if you have been following my blog, it will be obvious that I haven't quit yet. I am still working on the Stashbusters, on and off, but my muse has started singing to me again and I am working. Happily working. And last, I would like to share with you a funny picture of my cat that I previously posted on Instagram. The cats are supposed to stay off my quilts. This kitten hasn't learned that yet.
