Time For Courage and Love

72FFear

Lately the climate out there has been scary, with all the violence in the world plus kooky politics. It’s easy to shrink back in fear and become outraged or hateful. But I say FUCK FEAR! Be courageous instead.

Dallas, my beloved home town, is filled with so much love right now. People have been standing in line all week in the Texas heat to hug cops. The Texas heat!! Feels like 105 degreees! Black Lives Matter protestors and counter protestors — guys in cowboy hats with guns wearing confederate flag T-shirts! — came together and made peace in a group hug (see it on CNN.com).

All the anger out there comes from fear and I say FUCK FEAR! What the world needs now is LOVE, sweet love. So if you need something therapeutic to help you through this summer, stitch one of these up yourself!

Tornadoes Over Subversive

that red dot is a tornado

Yesterday in Dallas was a day of work completely stopping so that we could keep an eye on the tornadoes all around us. We were fine, though there were crazy storms and warnings nearby most of the day. It was pretty insane–I’ve never seen anything quite like it and I’ve lived here all my life.

Anyway, today I’m focused on shipping and catching up, but beginning tomorrow I’ll start explaining features of the new site and devoting a post to each.

Please feel free to let me know if you’ve had any difficulty finding anything or figuring something out. There have been a few kinks in the hose of progress (did I just make that phrase up? weird) but we’re ironing them out as we go…

Thanks for your patience and feedback!
