Hello and almost good night...
I came home from the studio a little early on Thursday with a feverish sweat and the beginning of temperature so I went straight to bed. To make a long story short I sleep through most of the day on Friday...we had snow, sleet and ice all day so staying home was an easy choice. Today I rested and worked on a few small projects like a baby quilt for my youngest brother's newest grandson Benjamin Charles. I also opened a couple envelopes that sent me through the roof with excitement. A month or so ago I had won a contest drawing and they will just make your mind go wild with ideas. They are works of art in themselves so I will take a moment to decide how I am going to employ these sacred gifts. Judith DeMilo Brown you have given me one of the greatest gifts...your beautiful sacred cloth. I am truly honored.
I am still under the weather a bit and I am going to exercise a short time before I take my shower...I am really trying to make this an important time in each of my days. I may move slowly but already I can feel the strength coming into my legs. I also opened a beautiful belated but just as beloved Christmas dove from my dear friend Gabriela....peace on earth to hold and cherish with each Christmas season. Then I had ordered an older book about altering books and the many avenues and variations one could experiment with. Well I apologize for missing a couple days ...but that is life. I am still here! Stay warm and I do not know about you but our weather is warming up tomorrow. Peace, Mary Helen Fernandez Stewart
p.s. I found this Retro Sewing book at Goodwill for $2.25...what a deal! I think this will be fun to play with some of the oldies but goodies. The price was pretty great also! Imagine and live in Peace, Art Lady!
