It's not so big anymore, you know?
While being up in the air I realize these difficulties I encounter seem overwhelming and scary- but up here it is only a small thing- a small mountain.
I can't explain the blanket of peace that covers me as I'm in this plane getting higher and higher into the sky.
The problems I face seemed impossible- but up here I am able to hold it in the palm of my hand- I am able to crush it under my feet. I can see the whole picture now.
Maybe this is what it means to focus on things “above” because up here, my problems aren’t overpowering me; at least not with this perspective.
A perspective from above. A perspective that allows me to notice trails but also to be able to handle them. To not be overly consumed and or phased by it. To truly feel hurt but to navigate through it.
Focused on things above. Focused on the promises from above. Focused on what truly matters. Focused on my God above. Focused on his Kingdom.

I’m living proof there’s no such thing as too much avocado. Ufff 3 beauts for $1 yes please 👌🏻
We made it to #Friday! **************
These balls of thread have been building up on my board all week. It’s basting cotton and is used to temporarily hold fabric together, either for machine sewing or just to check something for a fitting. (It is much more accurate than pinning). But it does feel wasteful- once you’ve pulled it out of the garment you can’t reuse it because it snaps. **************
At the moment it is going into a bag along with all the shreds of cloth which are too small even for making scrunchies. Does anyone have any ideas of what I can do with it all? Are there any great textile recycling plants in the UK which would take such small amounts? I tried to research this a few months ago but couldn’t really get anywhere. I’d love some advice. *****************
In the meantime I find them unbelievably satisfying to look at. Not only do they look like monsters from a book illustrated by a toddler, but they represent the weeks work done. As each thread is removed from the garment it signifies being a little closer to that one being finished. Which is a lovely thought. ***************
Enjoy your weekend all (and come visit us at Golborne Road Market tomorrow 930-430 😊)
