Featherings with a side of ruminations: should I blog or should I sew…

The Prayerful Peacock

I am becoming a great fan of slow fashion.

The problem with it is that—in my life at least—I want to create the fashion, which is a slow process.

It requires a precious commodity—time.

Yikes! Do I blog, or bead, or weave, or sleep, or sew?

[cue up that great tune, “Should I stay or should I go”, for background to this lament]

Yeah, big problem, right?

Actually, it is. I, like many other stitchers, weavers, beaders, crafters and artists, believe that she or he who dies with the most__________ [fill in the blank] wins*. And mine, even with attentive curation, is a big-ly stash. And according to the rules of slow fashion, I should not be hoarding. Anything. Period.

Oops.

At this point, I am realizing that my puritanical perfectionist instincts must subside. Balance is key.

All this by way of sharing that I bought a pants suit…

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!
