Koi Fish

I found this fabric at Ann's Fabrics where I go each Thursday to sew with a group of beautiful ladies. We range in age from fifty-five to eighty. I am learning so much from them. We share ideas, techniques, fabric, books and other resources.

I made these two purses while I was there today. I have one more in the works.
For many, koi fish represent strength, courage and determination. That happens to be what I find when I'm sewing. I feel so peaceful and focused every Thursday evening for having been sewing there during the day. It's like meditating in a very sacred space. Whenever I'm at loose ends, if I take it to my machine, I can always pull it back together.
