This & That....a little reflection.
The Nutcrackers are out; the tree is decorated; today's Sudoku puzzle is worked. Tonight I will wrap presents while I watch my DVD of Love Actually, which is one of my favorite new Christmas movies. I'm a sucker for Christmas movies........
This morning the Clinch Valley Handweaving Guild had their monthly meeting here at the house. Can I say it? I just LOVE weavers!!! What a blessing to be part of this community! Knowledge is shared, and projects are discussed and we have this interwoven life together. It's magical! Just like Christmas!!! You'll notice familiar faces in the pictures...some of the Guild members are also Tuesday Weavers. And, we tend to interweave some our activities for the benefit of both groups. We went ahead and set our meetings for 2010, and planned some of the programs. In January we'll be discussing TWILL in preparation for weaving Friendship Afghans. We also shared with the Guild the Tuesday Weavers participation in an exhibit that will be going on at the Knoxville Museum of Art starting in January. (There will be more about that later.) We will probably meet at the KMA in April to view the exhibit. We will prepare for the Fiber Festival in February; the Guild and the Tuesday Weavers will have a booth at the Townsend festival. It will be a busy year!
So, tonight, while I enjoy my movie and wrap the presents I have for my family, I will also count my blessings. I have been given many gifts, and my weaving family is one of my favorites.
