Every Inchie Monday....Dance....
I finished up my small work or should I say play piece? My Inchie is "dance" this week and I have already begun to work on my piece for next Monday. I had a wonderful surprise this morning when Me Dan DeLawder stopped by and delivered my newspaper article matted and framed for my studio. I held the tears back but my heart was pounding with gratitude...he is a very important man who works at Park National Bank but has continued to give back to our community over and over...and he has had the kindness of heart to keep me encouraged as I work daily in my studio to hopefully give back to my community. I made several small cards and had wonderful visitors all afternoon until I looked up and realized it was almost 5:30 and time to hit the road for home. Luckily I had my delicious chicken soup to warm up my body and replenish my energies. Ken completed his work from school and we can both settle in for the night. The sunshine today was blissful and even though the temperature was still very cold I know Spring is nearly here ...my brave, courageous Daffodils continue to reach for the sky.
I was upstairs ironing a couple of shirts for the week...don't ask me why because one of them has hand prints from a painting child on my back...I never realized how many times I receive touch from my tiny artists. Kylie is coming tomorrow and I am working on her art apron.... I am also working on a rose hair ribbon to wear in her beautiful hair. I hope to be able to add another layer on my large work...sometimes I lose my rhythm when the power outage...burn out ... on Saturday interrupts the process. Well back to the mysterious ironing episode I was mesmerized by the small herd of deer outside my studio window. It is hard to believe after 25 years of living on this hillside I am still in awe of the other inhabitants of the acreage. The deer were peacefully eating right out the back door...morsels of sweet green bits and pieces...soon the hills will be alive and they will leave my pacasandra (spelling) and ivy to grow back freely. Have a great evening and Imagine and Live in Peace, Mary Helen Fernandez Stewart
