verykerryberry #pictureyourpractice 'Aliveness', I never feel more alive than when I am immersed in music. I was a massive Pearl Jam fan in my early 20s and used to paint leather jackets for people in the local rock scene. This was mine. I saw Pearl Jam at Brixton Academy back then and remember the life, energy and joy of that gig. 3d

verykerryberry #pictureyourpractice 'Purpose'. My purpose has always been to create- sewing, drawing, it's always been the same since I was a small child. We all need creativity in our lives in some form. I went to a creatively driven primary school and constantly feel the benefit. Gratitude to some experiential and visionary teachers- you set me up for life. 4d

verykerryberry #pictureyourpractice 'Connect'. Firstly I think of EM Forster's famous quote from Howard's End, 'Only connect' : the yearning of the human spirit to connect, the depth of those connections, the connecting of the different part of oneself. But in practice when I meditate I connect my feet and the weight of my body to the floor, my face to the light and my attention to the breath. #meditationeveryday 5d

verykerryberry #pictureyourpractice 'Abundance', plenty of fish in the sea, another pebble on the beach. As someone with hoarder/collector tendencies I have a tussle with abundance, the fear it may all run out encourages acquisition in me. It's a hard one- when I am at the beach watching and listening to the sea, I want for nothing. #meditationeveryday 6d
  •   verykerryberry @vintagemodernquilts yes I think heading that way- certainly a lot more than the past, and reissues often kill the line for me too 6d
  •   verykerryberry @robyn_coffeeandcotton you are very welcome! 6d
  •   verykerryberry @thecodrette thankyou! 6d
  •   sewpsychd Lovely:))) and so many of us have that same challenge. 5d
  •   bohomumma You are spot on Kerry ~ it's so easy to get caught up in it all ~ that wanting to acquire, the wanting to do & take on events & commitments . Taking a step back & being in nature is like hitting the pause button for me every time & I just find myself thinking "why?" & remembering what really matters. 5d
  •   coachthais I think wanting to fill our lives with stuff is definitely the way we try to feel abundant. the irony is the more stuff we have the less we feel abundant. I think it's bc we forget abundance is not without but really a reality within. thank you for being vulnerable and sharing lady! 5d
  •   coachthais {also can I feature your pic and comment on my fb page??} 5d
  •   verykerryberry @coachthais yes you are welcome and thankyou for asking x 5d

verykerryberry Using #perfectcircles for @amitie_textiles #bringmeflowersbom flower centres- they make the best circles! 6d
  •   flossieteacakes You're truly the font of wisdom this week in my world (not that you aren't every week!). I make circles in a similar way (basting stitches, card, foil + iron), but I didn't know there was an official product for it! 6d
  •   verykerryberry @flossieteacakes ️I usually did the foil/card/starch or basting but @jenkingwell mentioned these at @fatquarterly retreat and I invested via amazon- I plan to do #greenteasweetbeans too so I need lots of circles! Worth it, v neat circles! 6d
  •   jenniferjohnston80 Love my perfect circles (which I also purchased based on Jen Kingwell's recommendation in the Bring Me Flowers pattern)! 6d
  •   lululollylegs Perfect circles are the best! 6d
  •   handmaderetro Could they, in fact, makr perfect circles?...clearly I've had too much coffee this morning 6d
  •   magdalenesmuse Perfect circles look gorgeous! 6d
  •   jenkingwell I'm pleased you love them. They are truly one of my favourite things . I don't buy a lot of gadgets but some things are worth shouting @jenniferjohnston80 6d
  •   lulaboolalulaboola They are indeed perfect! Looking lovely. 6d

verykerryberry #pictureyourpractice 'Nature', I need to post a day behind as I take the pic in the day and meditate early morning. I don't feel confident enough to meditate outside so I use the pic as an inspiration and commit it to my memory before I close my eyes look within #meditationeveryday 1w

  •   verykerryberry @jeifner thankyou! 1w
  •   elsabean Love this!!! 1w
  •   verykerryberry @elsabean thankyou Elsa! 1w
  •   petitselefants Really fab Kerry! Have you chosen a palette for the whole quilt, or are you just going one block at a time? I can't decide how to approach this one. 6d
  •   verykerryberry @petitselefants x I am trying to stay away from scrappy, use more solids and I've pulled a set of fabrics- I'll take a pic tomorrow to show you- I am trying to keep to the same tones as the original and some of the same colours- sorry that's all a bit vague! 6d
  •   petitselefants @verykerryberry no that makes sense! Would love to see your fabric pull. I was thinking this would look nice in an AMH palette, mixed in with some solids to keep it from being too busy. I got some shot cottons to go with AMH and they might be the ticket.... 6d
  •   verykerryberry @petitselefants shot cottons sounds perfect for AMH, most of the blocks need high contrast at certain points and the shot cottons could really help with that 6d

verykerryberry #pictureyourpractice 'inspire', a great word for a sewing blogger. I am inspired by many crafty people as you can see in the books, vintage finds and light and landscapes. Grateful to an online sewing community. I'll be thinking of these things as I go for 10 mins meditation x 1w
