part of my new daily routine is to spend the first moments with my eyes closed…in prayer or meditation or just letting my thoughts wander. as long as they don't cross the road alone, they can have free rein and romp in the fields. this morning an urgent plea from Henry got me up before i had a chance, but after making sure he was all pottied, i went back under the covers to cuddle. and i realized that i have a passion for entertaining - the prep of designing a menu and guest list and setting a beautiful table and the event itself. mostly the prep. and i thought about the difficulty i've been having in trying to find some table coverings i want to use. so i started working it out in my head, just how to make what i wanted. because i'll never ever find what i want. they would definitely need to be custom. and so they will be. custom made by me. and i thought, i can't be the only one who wants specific, well made table coverings. and how it's an extension of my fiber work and former quilting self and assemblage work, etc. and i realized that i could be on to something Just Enough and Maybe More. so i have asked a sewing friend to teach me the 2 specific skills that i need a refresher on, and will begin GoldaTable…Custom Coverings for a Beautiful Table.
that is, after today's dinner with PSD and her boyfriend. or boy friend. not sure.
I will still be doing animal reliquaries, and am so so humbled to be entrusted with this honor.
