As most of you know, many pattern designers had a tough go with it last year. As tough as it was, it gave the opportunity to open conversation and explain things that others had not truly thought of, such as Piracy. Social media was ablaze and it is in such times, that you see how people treat each other. I saw that after the initial shock and rants, there were people that I truly did not want to have connections with. Unkind words and actions were perplexing. Over time came distance, with the people and with Social Media. I had to learn how to balance it, to be a fruitful part of my life. It has been a time of healing inside and out. A time of family and a time of discovery for me. I am happy for the outcome.
Back are my sculpts, with a renewed sense of direction. I have learned better pattern making and technique for my mice and birds. I am thankful for a couple of friends that encouraged me this Winter to keep up with the armatures and take them further. I have so loved this journey and the birds that have come as I have grown.They truly are matching the look of what I set out for a year ago.
Chapters close in your life and it is not a bad thing....
I am healthier, inside and out (and it's wonderful to see inches disappear). I walk the walk, not talk the talk.....
I have goode friends that are goode people inside and out. They are not mean to others. Their actions match their heart.
I have goode family beside and two daughters that are both on their next journey. Through sunshine or storm, we all have each other.
I am grateful for the opportunities given me....for the lessons learned along the way. Also, for the friends and family that keep the better path.
