Happy Mothers Day to all you beautiful women who are Moms to people, animals, ideas and adventures! May you enjoy all the Blessings that Life has to offer.
Since the beginning of the “Contemporary Boro Weaving class” I have been doing this sampler as a way to practice my weaving. It was going to be just squares…but one day…a house appeared! The roof is made from a silk tie. I still have a lot more stitching to do, but it’s on it’s way.
Then I made a full moon from blues that I had in my stash.
When I put them together they look like this:
That is ONE BIG MOON! A very small section of a “Human Wrapping Cloth” ….or a “Life Coat”. Not sure yet what it will become…but that is the fun part of the process. To listen and Do. Stitch by Stitch
I’m thinking that I’ll probably add many other elements around the house….ones that relate to ‘Life’…..trees, birds, flowers, clouds, beasts, fences…it will evolve.

Here’s another journal page that was a turning point for me. It made me realize how important it is to begin to “Follow your Bliss”. We must decide exactly what it is that we want and then begin to do it….it doesn’t have to be perfect. Just start!
“Follow your bliss. If you do follow your bliss, you put yourself on a kind of track that has been there all the while waiting for you, and the life you ought to be living is the one you are living. When you can see that, you begin to meet people who are in the field of your bliss, and they open the doors to you. I say, follow your bliss and don’t be afraid, and doors will open where you didn’t know they were going to be. If you follow your bliss, doors will open for you that wouldn’t have opened for anyone else.” Joseph Campbell
