Building this website to encompass the entirety of the Slow Style project took me away from sewing for awhile. To make a tee shirt I returned to the sewing machine recently. As I assembled the tee there arose such a harmonious, buoyant feeling!

The left brain/right brain dichotomy is a useful way to consider the pleasure of making. If the right hemisphere of the brain pertains to creativity and the left to logic, the process of making--sewing, carpentry, etc.--engages both hemispheres, entwining their strengths. No amount of writing, collecting and organizing photos to build a website activates the psyche as sewing does.

Making is nourishing.
