There is something comforting about the beginning of the Advent Season in the midst of all the BS and nonsense going on in the world today. In spite of what is thrown at us we still have Our Lord, we still have our devotions.
We are lucky living where we do in our little corner of NE Texas. No vaccine passports, no mask mandates, we are simply living our lives as we see fit and worshiping Our Lord according to our beliefs. Trust in God the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit to be with us and guide us and take away our fears and anxiety as we contemplate the Birth of Our Lord.
I am a Native Texan, Wife, Mother, Grandmother, Great-Grandmother, Catholic Convert residing in rural North East Texas since 1975 when I married my husband and this small town girl became a country girl.
I was taught to knit at the age of ten and discovered the writings of Elizabeth Zimmerman shortly after I married. I learned to ‘unvent’ things as I went along, to create my own patterns and generally have a blast with yarn and needles.
In the mid 1980’s I explored the idea of spinning my own yarn and eventually got interested in weaving on a floor loom. I have three spinning wheels and a 24″ four-shaft Herald floor loom that I purchased from a friend in the 1990’s.
I also enjoy sewing, tatting and making rosaries. I have a work room that contains my fiber, yarn, floor loom, sewing machines, serger and rosary making supplies. I have a spinning corner in a bedroom next to my work room, both with north windows looking toward the creek.
