Wondrous Wednesdays: I’m in [the] Mood…

Last weekend afforded us an opportunity to travel to the Big Apple for some family time with children and grand ones.

Part of that adventure included a trip to Mood–the Project Runway Mecca of fabric stores!

I did my research so that the trip would be fruitful and not too time consuming. This strategy turned out to be a very good plan.

My son and I strolled up to Mood from the Financial district, traveling along the shore parkway (name is escaping me right now) and along the Highline, over the river and through the woods until we finally landed at Mood. This was quite the walk–and I love a good hike!  In reality, however, the distance was quite a long jaunt.  The grace of this: time with my adult son!

Once at Mood, he sat patiently while I hefted bolts of various sizes to find just the right pieces. As usual, the employees were friendly and helpful.  People watching was a blast! And of course, I am always most curious as to what folks are creating, so I did a little eavesdropping…

Success was had!

In addition to the fabrics I sought out [sorry–they are for Christmas gifts so I cannot reveal them here], I laid hands on some lovely lambskin pieces. I am hoping to edge my ruana in the taupe.

Now all I need is time…

Have a Wondrous Wednesday!

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!
