Hopeful Discoveries / by Yolanda Garza

When it rains outside I find myself not wanting to leave the house, but I must go regardless. Thoughts of traffic, the possibility of hydroplaning, and the prolonged journey are not my favorite activities, but I know my garden flourishes in the rain so I can ultimately accept and appreciate the rain falling.

Thankfully, what little time I am able to spend indoors at home, it should at least be productive. Macrame has caught my eye and I am curious about where this leads. I enjoy the process of measuring, cutting, wrapping, braiding, knotting, and finishing. It’s such a hands-on project that I absolutely love and enjoy seeing the finished results. When I learn something new, my mind goes crazy thinking about other uses for the project and even combining other mediums into one.
