Quiet Reflection Sunday






When you do things from your soul,
you feel a river moving in you....

Rumi


Hello everyone! Hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and
New Year's. A busy time of the year. I enjoyed my family being
together for the holidays, the baking, the eating and the celebrating!


Above is a picture of an owl I made for my daughter's Christmas
present. It is made out of hand dyed linen and items from my piles
of found objects. The wood came from a tree that was cut down
in my neighborhood. It is so much fun to make things from the 
heart. Luckily I am at the point in my life where I can work for
pleasure. I spent thirty years of my life making things for others
and teaching. I truly enjoyed those years, but to work for the sheer
enjoyment is a wonderful gift.

My word for this year is quiet. So encompassing. Do you make goals or resolutions? I would love to hear about them!

Have a wonderful day. Sue

  3. Love the owl!!!
    I have a few resolutions-but I know I'll have to practice them a lot before they become habits. One is to just shut up! For a basically quiet person-I still talk too much!!! The other resolution is no sugar for a while. So far-doing well with that one!

  5. Yup....you got it! It makes a huge difference when we make is because of the pure joy it brings us to create ....Instead of what a "client" wants

  7. HI Susan! I love your owl and I'm sure that your daughter loves it. My word is "learn", as in learn to do something better than I do it now. Or learn how to do something that I've never done before. We'll see! Sue
