My Gentle Threads. . . by Donna Wynn (yogiknitgirl) - 10M ago

I have had a complete dry spell when it comes
to writing on my blog.
With each week that passed from my 
year end post
I grew further and further away
from the urge to write something.
It was a bit scary to me,
you see I have been writing here
at Gentle Threads for over seven years.
It has been a place of safety, comfort,
expression and sharing for me . . .
yet nothing was coming for me to write about,
to share with you
and so the void in time.

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
