I had a lot of fears as a kid: monsters in the dark, anything that moved too fast and basically any new experience. But I loved swings.
I'd pump my legs hard and in perfect rhythm so I could soar high in the air. I loved/hated that drop in the pit of my stomach on the descent. If I closed my eyes, it felt like I was flying, completely free with nothing holding me back.
That feeling is what I think of when I look at this quilted wall hanging. As I get older, I'm releasing those fears and enjoying the freedom that comes with that. Ultimately, I am learning to embrace the person I am. So I've called this design: 'Swing higher!"
