Ever get that feeling in the pit of your stomach?

You know that feeling. The one that comes with worry. and anxiety. That's what inspired the work on this quilt. It's a simple black and white image with worry lines traversing the surface. Should I do this? or should I do that? Do I go here? or do I go there? Did I pay all the bills on time? Why am I forgetting things? How am I going to fit one more task into my day? Is that bulge over my beltline growing? ad nauseum.......

Sometimes they feel like big black boulders within. Erupting, surfacing, juggling my head.

It helps to stitch them out.
