Mount Nittany Spring

I am not a neat person by nature.  And so after months of going from project to project in the studio, it’s more a time of reckoning than cleaning.  But this pause feels refreshing and I’m looking forward to restoring order.  Yesterday I received a beautiful surprise early Mother’s Day gift from our younger daughter.  Five exquisite buttons, each one a little work of art, that were from Ron Myers of Spokane, Washington.   Such a beautiful gift, in sweet harmony with the opal-hued work of recent weeks as well as in harmony with my current focus: simply making order. In this moment of rest I’ve been appreciating so many sources of inspiration.  Loved ones, bright little studio, good resources at hand, the profusion of violets and tiny red Japanese maple seedlings suddenly all over the front yard — and all of the colors, sounds, scents, breezes of spring…There are so many other inspirations, among them “Spin Artiste,” the new online fiber publication.  The most recent article, about Dancing Leaf Farm, was so energizing and positive, it felt like a warm spring breeze.  I’m looking forward to The Maryland Sheep and Wool Festival, and to meeting some of the fiber artists I’ve read about, and whose work and generous spirit are beautiful gifts.   In this pause from felting, I’ll enjoy the less-physical work of doing some spinning, to savor this moment — and see if I can translate some of the beautiful colors around me into yarn…
