Feathering Fridays: more mashing…

Today I bring a little creative work to the style lens!

But first, a tale…

When I was a child, my Mom always made sure that my sibs and I sported new Easter clothing and new shoes. Often, she made the garments for my sisters and me. As an adult, I have hung on to that tradition and did so for our children as well, at least in terms of a fresh outfit.

Sometime in the last 10 years, I started to wonder where this tradition of an Easter outfit arose. I don’t know for certain, but I like to speculate that it has something to do with putting on the new life of the Risen Christ. Makes sense to me!

Back to today’s mash up: I purchased 2 lovely pieces from Ann Taylor in anticipation of the Easter Outfit tradition. The first is a simple but pretty, heavy lace sleeveless shell; the second, an equally attractive pale pink pleated skirt. Together, they really scream, “Happy Easter, happy spring!”

Now, if we can just get the weather to co-operate…

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!
