Siddhling

I am housebound with #MyalgicE and P.O.T.S., mostly supine, and – due to a loss of function in my hands a few years back – sadly cannot crochet anymore. The tentative return of nimble fingers has allowed a little slo-mo sewing lately, and so revived my artist-self – to my great delight. Precision and ambition have given way to playfulness: I have shared the months of shielding from Covid19 with an imaginary four year-old called Siddhling (pronouns: they/them), and make outfits and ragdolls for them, from old clothes and materials I’ve got lying around at home. Luckily my lockdown companion doesn’t mind wonky seams! I miss having conversations about issues close to my heart (I'm often too fatigued to speak) - this way I can communicate a little. Best though: the project’s sweetness has elevated anxiety-ridden days. I've even laughed more…
