Welcome to my sacred space! I am entering my fifth year with my blog and it has been an incredible journey for me. I love to share my creative adventures, poetic words and photographic moments about weaving.
Life moments have a way of creeping into every aspect
of who we are.
There is so much joy to experience, there is growth,
sorrow, anxiety, love moments, happiness,
creativity and so much more.
I created this blog to keep me writing about the things in this life that I am passionate about. So I have to ask the question to myself ... am I no longer passionate about writing, about creating and so much more? How did I allow so much time to pass without tending to my blog ... my only answer is that life happened.
I lost a father n law to ALS, we sold our parents precious home in North Carolina, we moved our mom n law up here and settled her into life in Virginia Beach, my four grandchildren kept me extremely busy, did I mention they are now 4, 3, 2 and 1, I'm still working three days a week as an Optician at Gilbert Eyecare, my husband was diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis, and we are settling in to all that involves. My mother n law fell and broke her hip right before moving her into independent living, then there was rehab ...
I think you get the idea where the past seven months have gone. So here we are ... the beginning of September and I feel as though I have returned home, home to my safe place, home to where my heart is free to fly. Thank you for your patience with me, I have missed being here!
I have been weaving up a storm ... I was able to fly to Estes Park Colorado, June, 2018 for a very quick trip and learn Navajo Weaving, (I am totally in love with this new weaving process) I am currently working on an online class learning four selvedge weaving with Rebecca Mezoff and Sarah Swett, (my weaving mentors) I finished my beautiful needlework Stitch a Long with friends, "Friends of the Hart" by Plum Street Samplers. It now hangs in my living room, right next to my needlework chair ... I feel like my life is slowing returning to where it needs to be.
Did I mention my hubby is retiring? Yes, this week is his last week of working as a Mechanical Automotive Designer, I'm so proud of him Now on to the next phase of our life together. In January we celebrated 41 years of marriage!!!
So I have decided to keep plugging along with my blog, The posts may not be as often, but they will come! I'm just not ready to let it go! Thank you for being here and supporting my written words.
So today I am wishing you peace and light, and all good things in your own life. Cherish it all ... don't waste a minute Donna Lee
