Featherings: been a while…

You may be wondering where I have been…or not!

Life has been busy these last few months. Nothing terribly remarkable or difficult, just life stuff. I needed to put my energies in some other nests for a bit and take a rest from the blogging. What I discovered is that I really miss blogging!

A month or so ago, I received an email from WordPress trying to entice me out of my free blog into a paid subscription. I hemmed and hawed and finally gave in last Friday. You may have noticed a new look, which, by the way, is a work in progress. I suspect this design to continue to emerge over the next few months.

But I digress. If I pay for a service, I feel highly obligated to use said service. So, I do expect to post once a week, under the heading of Ruminations or Featherings for now. I may opt to reconfigure that element of this blog as well. As I said, a work in progress.

These past few months have brought us a beautiful new granddaughter! No pics, so as to honor the wise wishes of her parents. One cannot be too careful online you know. However, you will see a photo of a blanket in progress for this little pumpkin!

Other featherings—I did finish the suit. I just need to pop on the buttons. Now, a little problem is that I have gained about 10 pounds beginning with November of 2016. A bit of stress eating I am certain! So about that pay for a service thing…I need to reconnect with Weight Watchers and ask the social networking community to hold my feet to the fire. I can carry 10 pounds but my clothing is a bit tight.  That said, my suit skirt is already a tight fit. To wear it I need to shed at least 5 pounds.

I do have some other fabulous fabric care of Mood that you will see take shape over the summer. High on my list is a pair of brown linen/silk blend trousers, a pink and grey floral full skirt and a blue Adonis print A-line dress.

That is all for now friends!

Thanks for staying connected.

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!
