Why Wedding Dress Blue?
My wedding dress was a bright, cobalt blue. My poor mother when she saw it took a deep breath and said, “Well…it is you.” I have never regretted the decision (the dress or the marriage) and in our family that perfect blue color has come to be known as “wedding dress blue.” It sometimes causes confusion for strangers, but it makes perfect sense to me.
I try to fit quilting and sewing into a busy family and church life (and being a middle school teacher) and feel very lucky if I get an hour a day (sometimes at very odd hours).
It seems that I nearly MUST have some creative time each day in order to feel fully alive. Maybe this is why:
“The desire to create is one of the deepest yearnings of the human soul. No matter our talents, education, backgrounds, or abilities, we each have an inherent wish to create something that did not exist before… Creation brings deep satisfaction and fulfillment. We develop ourselves and others when we take unorganized matter into our hands and mold it into something of beauty…” Dieter F. Uchtdorf
I aspire to beauty. Hopefully, I am getting there.
