Feathering Fridays: all that glitters is sometimes gold…

A short update on this Feathering Friday!

We had a great time at the prom! The venue—the Milwaukee Art Museum’s Calatrava wing—is simply stunning and elegant. The meal, while delicious, was a bit elongated. Interesting that the adults could handle that time length but the high school students didn’t have a clue of how to handle waiting between courses. They simply needed to move around. Ah, youth…

The manner of dress was quite varied—gentlemen in tuxes and sport coats; women in long and short gowns. Sequins, trains, red, black, and white; vibrant color and boho style, and of course, lace created a delightful patchwork!

The students loved to dance and really rocked it! Tom and I did our chaperone duty and had the opportunity for a slow dance before we left…

And here is a picture of the happy couple: me in my gold and Tom in his chestnut and taupe tones.

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!
