The opening Post of On Gossamer Wings
Wow I did it!
I have finally organized a blog for myself ggg This is going to be real fun keeping this up dated. I hope you will all bear with me, as I travel along this road. Where is this blog heading? where am I heading? Let's travel that road together.
I'd better tell you a little more about myself from what is in my profile. Besides my two Siamese "babies" have two dogs - a Pomeranian and a Kelpie - Kim and Sox, they all run our home. I have an aviary with some native birds; we have chooks and two of our daughters' horses - a Shetland pony and a palomino with whom she used to do show jumping.
In 1991 I began an advanced certificate in studio textiles, this is where I learnt to weave. When Moira was about 6 she wanted to learn to spin, so that is when I first learnt to spin as well. Until I went to college, I ran a bridal and special occasion millinery business from home, I also made silk flower bouquets and arrangements. I had to close the business while I was at college as I didn't have time for it, and I've never reopened it.
My crafts, my spinning, weaving, knitting take up a lot of my time, they are what I 'do'. But the question "who am I" is more important. Being wife and mother is a nurturing role and that is a role I extend to all of our earth and the people whom I meet on this road. I am also a spiritual person, I believe we are called to do ordinary things extraordinarily well. I know I very often fail at this, but it is something I strive to do.
