I am away...

I took the red eye and flew aross the country in the middle of the night last week to be with my mom who is critically ill.  The waiting and praying continue as we visit her daily and wait for her to open her eyes.  Mercifully, my sister asked me to do some projects, creating lots of barrettes for a friend goin on a trip to South Africa. 

Forty-five barrettes later, I continue to keep my glue gun loaded and ready for the next round of ribbons, fabric and glue.  The quiet evenings pass quicker when I am creating.  I hope to express and process my sorrow and grief with creativity, making something new out of something in a more raw state.  More posts and some pictures soon.
