Cold Winter Benefits

Today I had a class with Valerie Pace Donley who taught us how to weave small purses (prayer bags, intention bags) from all sorts of fabric scraps and snips of yarn. It is sure to be fun to do - something to fill the hands during this cold winter. The cold winter also brought my son and daughter-in-law over since their pipes froze and they had no water. And then who stopped by but my daughter, with my granddaughter and her two boys: my two great-grandchildren. Phoenix was born on Dec. 2, so he is quite new! Alex is adjusting to being a big brother and is only a blur on the couch next to us. (I like my photo since it's blurry around the edges.) I am loving the extra time I have with retirement ... and the art I'm making is a great enjoyment - femminismo

Here is the almost finished painting from the Judy Wise class. I need to fix some things, but otherwise I had a great deal of fun. Merry Christmas to me - femminismo

Thirty-seven Days

I am imagining I have 37 days to live, inspired by the book "Life Is A Verb," written by Patti Digh (pron. "dye"). Coincidence? Perhaps not! And then later today at 9:30 a.m. (in only a half-hour) I will take a class with Judy Wise on "Intuitive Painting." I hope the results are marvelous and will post pictures of it soon. Between Patti and Judy and myself, I hope to regain some portion of my lost mojo - femminismo
