Yesterday, I was in sort of a crappy mood. I’m a little sick, and was almost out of coffee, so I grabbed a thread bomb that had been swimming around in my bag for a few weeks. I quickly tied it up, without tucking in the ends (an am now regretful), and quickly walked away. The funny part is, I’ve been a little shuttered lately, being sick, business planning, and getting ready to go to Chicago for work. I haven’t been living big at all. So, maybe this one was for me.

I work from home, so some days I have to just get out of the house or I’ll go stir crazy. Even if it’s the Saturday before Christmas, I just needed to see buildings and people and trash on the sidewalk. This is one of the ways that I re-ground myself. Thread bombing makes me feel physically connected, and I like the idea of giving free smiles without anything expected in return. So yes, at this time of year specifically, it’s important to remember that in fact, “Consideration is classy”.

It’s been a few weeks since I last went on a little thread bombing adventure. I’ve had some life changes, and have been questioning people in my life and how and if they are healthy relationships. Sometimes, you just grow in different directions, and don’t see the same truths anymore.
Anyways, with all of these thoughts swirling around and my inner monologue shouting, it felt good to just go out, and focus on a simple act.

Saturday morning again. It’s pleasantly sunny, though my jaunt down the hill felt like work today. In any case, I must soldier on in my quest to make my little mark.

One more for Saturday.

It’s Saturday in Fremont, Seattle, and the sun is trying to fight through the clouds, boding for a sunny afternoon. I stitched a few embroidered pieces for my weekend craftivism last night, and am stealthily (I think) tying them around street sign posts when I find one that looks fitting.

It’s an overcast, yet pleasant Saturday morning. I was walk if down to Fremont from my house, and thought I would sprinkle around a couple of embroidery bombs for the weekend. The origami crane was tied to a roundabout by my house, and the whale with “Spout Off” ended up on a street sign in Fremont on Evanston. I’m thinking of starting to pose the quotes as questions rather than statements.

Almost every day of the week, there is a farmers market somewhere in Seattle. They are so well organized, and the produce, breads, cheeses, and meats are such high quality. I wish more cities offered farmers markets that were accessible. Here are a couple of pics from the weekend. My embroidery bomb by the farmers market, some local produce, and me photographing one of my embroidery bombs. Eat well and create!

Yesterday, I was walking down to Fremont, new embroidery bomb in hand, and the wind was blowing so hard, it was surreal. Big signs were blown over, and the leaves were swirling in little funnels. I hadn’t planned where I would tie my latest message, but when I saw this bike rack, I just had a feeling…

In Seattle, it’s very hilly, and there are staircases all over that take you up the hill in the middle of a block. They are steep, and surrounded by plants and trees. I decided to embroider bomb the staircases today. “Kindness is universal” and “Keep Wondering”, which is a little hard to read.
