My little pillow stuffers for #sunnyroompillowdrive
15h
  •   threadedmess Do you still need more? 15h
  •   libbydibby @threadedmess yep!! I have been told more people are sending and bringing them in, but as the girls rotate in and out of this shelter, having extras on hand will be nice. The plan is for my friend, Erin, to be able to personally welcome each girl with a pillow of her own. 15h
  •   threadedmess I'll see what I can do about finding more then! 14h

libbydibby By my count... Tomorrow we will have had Dax 442 days in our family. That is the same amount of time we had Gray with us. Then, suddenly on day 443, Gray had to go to a home where he would be forever safe because his bio family had learned where we lived and posted violent threats and our home address on the Internet. When I think of having to say goodbye to Dax in one day, I realize how much healing I have had to do these past few years. It's been the hardest journey of my life.
It was the greatest loss I've ever faced and took me to the edge of breakdown like I never thought possible. My beautiful husband was so instrumental in me keeping afloat. There were times it didn't seem like it would happen. I almost nearly lost my faith.
But we have survived. And Gray has too. He started kindergarten last week. He is safe in a forever family. And we will always be missing our boy that falls in between Zane and Dax, but we thank God for his protection and for giving us a rainbow baby to bring back so much joy.
This is a huge milestone for our family. On Monday, Dax will have been here longer than Gray.

  •   christytrabs @libbydibby @robynrudell I remember hearing someone preach about that Psalm once and that whole concept has stuck with me even now years and years later. It's such a beautiful picture that is lost if you don't realize that simple translation of Baca=weeping. 2d

libbydibby Last night we went to a special service at church with great music and prayer. I was there for only about 15 minutes before regretting having any art supplies other than pen and paper. My ninja husband ran off and returned with an old magazine, a glue stick and a pair of scissors to borrow and I was able to make this image of a doorway covered by a garden that had popped into my mind. @mercy_charis said it reminds her of The Secret Garden. I definitely can see that. 3d

libbydibby Oh hey. My name is Libby and I just pushed through my creative sluggishness and 4 hours of sleep last night to do what I've been wanting to do since June... Work on something that actually has a creative plan. Let's get this train rolling again. #creativityishardwork 4d

libbydibby In the process of cleaning off my desk in the studio, this little thing got created. Score one for the #sunnyroompillowdrive. Being easily distracted does make a lot of gifts for other people... Even if it makes cleaning 4x as difficult. 4d

libbydibby Sew together a #sewtogetherbag or two... And then fill it and send it off to friends! 5d

libbydibby Well... I finally sewed tonight for a few minutes... Mostly I just felt frustrated with my unorganized desk. But I finished something that's been 90% completed for weeks. Clearing off the mental to do list is key to opening up space for creativity. I've got like 5 really compelling quilt ideas to work on and I need to get that studio in working order! 5d
  •   lorena_in_syd I can relate. I've just spent 3 days sorting and reorganising mine. It as completely dysfunctional and suffocating. 5d

libbydibby My beautiful girl begged me to let her stay up a few extra minutes to do #zentangles with her tonight. She actually has a Zentangle elective at school and I foresee a lot more doodling together this semester. (Please let it be forever!) she showed me an exercise where they went back and forth drawing on each other's pages, so we did that too.
I was so quiet that she didn't think I was having fun, but really it just felt so good to be an artist for five minutes and nothing else. Thank you, @mercy_charis, for making me slow down tonight. I adore you and every moment with you is precious.

libbydibby This is my next finish for the #sunnyroompillowdrive - if I ever get some sewing time again! All I have to do is stuff and seam it up, but that's easier said than done these days.
This was one of my 2 improv blocks from my workshop with @dsquilts years and years ago. Both are being made into pillows, but I'm keeping the other one.

libbydibby September is almost here! Do you have a pillow in the works for the #sunnyroompillowdrive? We still need at least 18 pillows to give one to each girl at this shelter for teen moms. I will be collecting them at the September #lamqg meeting or if you aren't local, send a Direct Message and we can work out a delivery option

These are the ones that Janice from @betteroffthread is working on!
