Feathering Fridays: adventures in spring dressing…

It is April 8. It has snowed every day for the last week.

Really Mother Nature?

When we talk about “April showers”, I know it was the rain-type, not the frozen version we had in mind.

So, how does one dress in this crazy weather scenario?

I cannot, will not, wear my winter coat. No can do.

I will deign to wear my boots—not the suede versions, but the equestrians will do.

Multiple sweaters, scarves, jackets over tights, leggings or trousers are par for the course.

Some bright and sparkly jewelry helps as well.

But oh…my spring jaunty dresses and floral skirts; lightweight jackets and linen cardigans, and of course, the open toes shoes really want to come out to play!

C’mon man…bring on Spring!

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!
