Finding Peace Within

When I saw this quote from Emerson on Pinterest I immediately pinned it and I knew I'd have to turn it into some kind of artwork. I enjoyed so much hand-quilting last weeks's project that it wasn't hard to decide what to do with it.

I used my beloved frixion with the Silhouette pen holder to get my design onto the fabric. Did some embroidery along the lines. And this time I was a little smarter, I drew the quilt line on Silhouette Studio as well, no need to use the eraser in case I didn't like the way it looked...

I am a very spiritually inclined person. I really do believe that our source of joy is inside of us. It cannot be taken away from us by anyone or anything except ourselves. Having these inspirational quotes all over the house help me remember that. At a time when the world seems to be lacking so much peace and understanding, I really wished we could all just go inwards and feel the peace that emanates from within. That inner silence that nourishes our whole being, that meditative state which clears the mind of thoughts, anger and fear.  I digress... but hope this inspires you to decorate your own space with beautiful words to live by!
