the quality of Anxiety

A {preview} for my blogging friends of whats coming to the shop tomorrow :)

This is my favorite style of necklace that I make. I have one that I wear almost daily. And I made one for my friend Renea, whom also wears hers with alot of regularity and says she gets many compliments on it all the time. I like the calm Autumn feel of this one...

Here is another new necklace that I am wearing :)

and this teal crochet crop i am wearing is my favorite article of clothing, well, okay, one of them...i thought i lost for a month or so, then i found it tucked away somewhere it had fallen, needless to say i was full of joy to find it!

Here is a shirt I made for my lovely best friend Shelley.
She gave me a pile of shirts she does wear for this reason or that and I am re-vamping them for her! And what an honor to work on her Zep shirt!

Our little local coffeshop, The Dogleg Coffeehouse. We love it. Then took a drive to tarpley where I am bird sitting. And we listened to MXPX. And I remembered how much I loved some of those songs...

I am reading a little book that I am borrowing from a friend. It is called The Book of Qualities by J. Ruth Gendler, it is a quirky, poetic outlook on many different things that we would call qualities. Lately I have been feeling this one overwhelmingly:


"Anxiety is secretive. He does not trust anyone, not even his friends, Worry, Terror, Doubt, and Panic. He has a way of glombing onto your skin like smog, and then you feel unclean. He likes to visit me late at night when I am alone and exhausted. I have never slept with him, but he kissed me on the forehead once, and I had a headache for two years. He is sure a nuisance to get out of the house. He has no respect for locks or curtains or doors. I speak from experience. It takes cunning to get rid of him, a combination of anger, humor, and self-respect. A bath helps too. He does not like to get wet. As a last resort, if you are not near a bathtub, wet your face with tears."
