Reflection

Mother’s Day is bittersweet for me.  My Dad died in 1983.  At the time my mother lived in New England in the family home.  After a year of living in a retirement community there, my mother visited California and decided to move cross country.  Mind you she was 76 years old at the time and had lived in the same neighborhood all of her life.  She had flown on a plane twice.  Needless to say I was aghast at her decision!

To make a long story short she moved to California and lived nearby for the last 5 years of her life.  She often said that she felt like she was living a dream and never thought she would live in such a beautiful place.

My Mom died in 1989.  That is so long ago but so many memories of her seem so fresh.  For me Mother’s Day is a day of remembrance.  And a day of thanks for the loving care she gave me for so many years.

Yesterday I remembered her spirit, her home cooking, her zest for life, her love of helping people.  And as I dressed my loom and knitted and sewed and cooked I once again was thankful for her legacy.  She was my biggest fan and I will miss her always.

Weaving With Cats

I'm a longtime weaver who sews my own clothing. More recently, I learned how to to knit, spin my own yarn, dye, felt, bead & more. My recent claim to fame is my spiral motif rigid heddle Mermaid Scarf on the Nov/Dec 2015 cover of Handwoven magazine. I have an eight shaft floor loom, eight shaft table loom, rigid heddle loom, inkle loom, backstrap loom, a pack of cards for card weaving, and a vintage tiny rigid heddle Weave Easy Hand Loom. Occasionally I will post about other crafts I make, especially ones involving sea shells. I belong to many Facebook weaving, spinning, dyeing & knitting groups. My two kitties Pablo and Sasha are littermates. My sister rescues homeless cats in San Diego and my sweet kitties were born at just the right time for me to adopt them. They enjoy my fiber arts endeavors as much as I do.
