It rained today, tonight is cool and cloudy, it's finally the beginning of scarf making season. Curled up on the couch with a fleece blanket and the pattern for a lace scarf (Mythos shawl, from Ravelry: https://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/mythos-shawl)
Selfie, body image
I take a lot of pictures of myself, for myself. A few times a week, I'll prop my phone against something and hit the timer. What type of space do I take up? How am I feeling? I spent a lot of years listening to people tell me to hate myself; what if I just put my image out, leave it, make it mundane?
I love other people's self portraits too, for whatever reason you share them. Just appreciating how you appreciate and record yourselves. You're all great 💚
This quilt by Rebecca Cynamon-Murphy is 🔥🔥🔥
"In addition to naming an unrealized but very real fear and releasing it with laughter, it encourages us all, intersectionally, to crush the patriarchy by claiming our own needs as primary in a society that usually inhibits this...the quilting motif is free-form scallops to affirm that no one’s curves, of any body type, adhere to the expectation that we should be symmetrical and perfect."

Selfie - thrift store
When I choose clothes, I wish that I could pull off the casual, alternative, cute, carefree, youthful looks it feels like everyone else can do. (I either look excessively sloppy or very MUSIC⚡BAND How do you do, fellow kids.) But then I find something like this jumpsuit, and I'm okay with that.
