When my husband was deployed during our engagement we wrote letters. Dozens and dozens of lovely letters. I keep them in a special box in the closet. Every once in a while I take one out and pour over the words. Those letters contain secrets, promises, struggles, tears, and overwhelming hope. They are one of my greatest treasures. I signed them:
Sewing is a lot like writing a letter to someone you love; it can be well thought out or the product of a sudden whim, a long process or a quick piece, and you always pour a little bit of yourself into it.
