I’ve been so anxious to return to blogging and am finally taking the time to catch up here. Thank you all so much for the comments, emails, and expressions of sympathy for my mom. It is not only tough to lose her, but there has been a perfect storm of other personal issues and family issues that I’m dealing with right now. I still try to count my blessings every day and just be grateful for everything that comes into my life — good and bad. Even the unpleasant things that happen provide some rich learning experiences.
Thankful thing #1 – I’m learning to reach out more, ask for help more often, and stay connected to people who care about me.
Thankful thing #2 – I finished my (2) classes earlier this month!
In addition to Texas Government (an online class), I also took Ceramics I for a visual and performing arts credit. It was challenging (not nearly as easy as it looks), but very rewarding. The photo above is from my final — and included several required techniques and projects as well as a critical essay about Ai Weiwei.
Thankful thing #3 – More time working at the shop — it’s instantly calming to walk in and see (and touch!) yarn and fiber, and to spend time with friends.
There are some changes brewing that will involve my engaging more with my blog readers, friends, and like-minded fiber fanatics. I hope to share more soon. (Hint: It might involve occasional videos).
Thank you, as always, for reading my blog and for sticking around!
