This opportunity to work for Marcy has felt like a major Life gift. All my adult life I have been self employed along with my husband as basket makers, which is a very different mode of making a living in the world. Now I am surrounded with women who are strong and creative expressionists. Marcy encourages us to extend into being better sewers and tuning our fabric awareness and language of. Really, really, this is a dream job come true. It has challenges enough in all realms and plenty of fun and good feelings to keep me smiling inside and out.
Every morning I sip tea and hand stitch. At the end of each day I settle myself by stitching even more, for I love the feel of thread and the rhythm of the needle weaving in and out of cloth. Small little stitches while my mind slips off into day dreaming. I have spun, dyed and woven wool. Been a knitter always and since I became an adult, have sewn some of my clothes.
What fuels me? Waking up into my extraordinary life each day with my beloved mate who is a calm, steady, warm force. The natural world surrounds us: we live on a large piece of land where bear and fox and all manner of critters make their home. There are a couple of blogs I daily step into for inspiration; Jude Hill and Terri Windling...they expand me.
