Wondrous Wednesdays: A wedding nears…

Nothing excites a family quite as much as a wedding!

This Saturday, my nephew Dustin will celebrate marriage with his wonderful fiancé’ Courtney.

This is time to gather the family;

prepare special foods and beverages;

and not to be forgotten,

fashion  clothing and gifts.

Two weeks ago I mentioned an endeavor for moi.

About that silk dress…

We are almost done!

All in all, the dress went together well. It is asymmetric in design. The one glitch was that the right pleated panel “grew” a bit and I needed to create a dart to fit it properly. No problem as the print camouflages it perfectly!

Finished product and accessorized version to come over the next few weeks…

I am a fabric artist and a professional minister in the Catholic Church. I am married for 40+ years to a most fabulous man. We have 4 adult children, 2 daughter-in-laws ( who we also consider to our children!) and 4 grandbabies. I love to weave, paint silk, sew and design garments for myself; bead, read, write and color. I am also a spiritual Companion/Director and have a special place in my soul for women who are healing and in need of healing from trauma and abuse. I love coffee, quiet reflective prayer time at my kitchen table and long walks to breathe in the Holy Spirit. I would like to learn how to spin yarn and will someday create a spun, hand dyed/painted, beaded, woven fabulous garment of peace!
