Wow! What a response! I sure didn't expect that. I can't tell you how much each of you touched my heart. I started this blog over ten years ago. I really did it for myself as an online journal and for my parents that lived several hours away. I was surprised when others found and followed me.
Blog posts take a good amount of time to compile photos, load, organize and write. I started thinking that maybe blogging had become a thing of the past. Even though my intention was to do it for myself, I thought maybe this was too much time to devote to me when I could be doing other more productive things. Knowing that there are many that haven't moved on to Instagram and Facebook make me feel less old fashioned and feeling that maybe blogging is a productive use of my free time.
Thank you again for taking the time to comment.
I will continue on, but maybe at a slower pace than I would like.
Maybe that is why we like blogging - the slower pace - as someone mentioned it feels like writing and reading a letter that arrives in the mail.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart!
"Pomegranates and More"
design by Maggie Bonanomi
for Wheaten Woolens class in June 2019
Mom and I both finished our class projects.
It's always fun to see their similarities and differences.
Here is Mom's.
Pretty true to Maggie's original.
And with Mom's work - always perfect :)
I tweaked mine just a bit, adjusting the birds to my liking and adding points to finish off the sides.
I love this as a late summer / early autumn piece and am enjoying having it on display now.
I'll be back soon to share some of our fun travels this summer.
Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice!
