Sew, Knit, LEARN!

^ appropriately modeling the pillows I sewed this winter
(floral fabric from Harmony)

By Allison Barnes

I once met a woman whose home shone with creativity, light, and wellness. Chickens plucked away around the green Tennessee hills surrounding her home; old wooden frames graced her walls, filled with the scenes she had painted herself over the years; and in the adjoining sun room was her studio, piled with projects and scattered with potentials. There was the loom, the spinning wheel, the sewing machines, and blank canvases (or re-purposed canvases). When she grew too weak to work in the studio (for her health and strength were not always consistent) she curled up in bed with her knitting projects. And, as God had given her these talents, she willingly gave her creations away to the people she loved (myself included, and I am so grateful).

Her creative spirit is one I’ve tried to emulate in my own life. When life feels like it’s dragging, I begin projects (and finish most of them) and life feels a little bit lighter again. When someone else feels like their life is dragging, I head to the kitchen and bake, because cookies tend to make days just a little bit easier to bare. Creativity fills my soul in the loveliest of ways, and those are skills worth developing and pursuing.

Last week I practiced calligraphy. This week I’m trying out a recipe for Honey-Roasted Veggies + Gnocchi. Next week I’m planning on attending a crocheting class here at Harmony, because I haven’t crocheted since I was a little girl and I want to pick it up again. And next month I’m signed up for a paddleboard-yoga class, so we’ll see how that goes!

Harmony’s motto is sew, knit, learn, and I’m trying to do just that! 

What have you learned lately? What new skill or hobby have you tried your hand at?

There are still a few more spring classes left before our summer classes begin! Sign up today by coming into the shop or calling (801) 615-0268. For more information, visit harmonyprovo.com.
