A little video I made on changing size (and coming to terms with it).
Please note: I'm not looking for diet and exercise tips! Thanks so much. This is about learning to love my body the way it is. And I hope you love yours too.
If you'd like to know more about any of the health issues I mentioned, here are some quick links:
Adrenal fatigue and chronic stress
Perimenopause and menopause
I did a Stitch Therapy Zoom meetup on Sunday, which was awesome. I've been feeling the need to stab things multiple times, and I figure it's safest to do that on fabric and much more fun to do it in good company. It was a hoot, and we'll be doing it again on the first Sunday of each month until we can meet safely in person.
Hey, maybe even after that.
If you'd like to join in, send me a note and I'll send you the link.

I re*make mobility devices and materials and give them new lives. Sometimes I staple drape.
