Progress on the Paraments

Here is a sneak peek on the progress made on the custom work for Chapel in the Pines Presbyterian Church. This is a detail from one of the two pulpit ribbons.

The pinecones represent the congregation, the ribbon - God's all embracing presence, and the open tail of the ribbon - (not visible in the photo above) that there is always room for more in the church community and they are welcome.

The parament design is anchored by the traditional 'IHS'.

Far too many days have passed since my best experience ever at a show! The attendees at the conference were absolutely awesome, the volunteers were wonderful, and my customers were great. It was so meaningful to get to know the people who chose to buy my stoles, and a great big "Thank You" goes to them all. It was especially nice to spend the day with my mother at my side, and to have her join in.

I deeply appreciate the generous invitation by Lou East to exhibit and the kind welcome of Cris Rivera as coordinator.

I am in the middle of writing a piece for the blog, but did not want to wait a day longer to give thanks. :)
