Last week, Suzi from http://suzie81.wordpress.com/2013/11/20/questions-questions-questions-tell-me-about-you/ asked me to answer some questions that would help her know more about me. We’ve been WP buddies for a long time. So here goes – more than you want to know, I’m sure!
I chose my blog name as a double entendre. I spend almost all the free time I have messing about with bits of fiber. I have always loved fabric and spent a great deal of my time in the 80s being a fiber artist. I had enough success in this field to be published 5 times and, more importantly, to sell everything I made at an art gallery. I loved it. Eventually, as with most of my passions, it wasn’t doing it for me so I switched to making clothing. That was a throw back to when I was 17 and desperately wanted to go to fashion design school while the parents plumped for teacher training. Guess where I went? Anyway, my whole life has been about finding, dyeing, putting together, sewing and generally messing about with fluff. Plus I have lots of dust bunnies too because I’m too busy on my next project to clean ……… or so I say. Also fluff can mean that hey – it’s not all that big a deal – and that’s what I think about what we see as reality – it’s just fluff.
In my free time (I have more than most people being as I’m older) I usually browse the internet for more fabric. Shallow I know – but I love it. I always meditate to keep from running into the street screaming so meditation isn’t free time – it’s absolutely built into the old schedule.
What age would I stay forever? None. I like the progression of the years and growth. As I get older I’m more and more comforted by the things I learn daily that make my life easier. I’m just as content now at 61 as I was at 11. It’s all the same.
What new thing would I study? Hmm. I would like to learn Sanskrit.
If I won the lottery the first thing I’d buy would be a plane ticket to New York for some serious fabric shopping.
The thing that makes me unique is, oddly enough, the thing that makes me not that unique. I know why I’m here and I know who I am.
My favorite blog is http://rethinkingreality.wordpress.com – Gigi’s drawings, words and poems are conscious expanding.
So that’s me – a little fluffy – but truly me.
