"WHEN YOU GIVE IN TO CREATIVE PASSION, IT WILL BRING YOU TO
THE INTIMATE THRESHOLDS OF TRANSFIGURATION AND RENEWAL. THIS GROWTH CAUSES
PAIN, BUT IT IS A SACRED PAIN. IT WOULD BE MUCH MORE TRAGIC TO HAVE
CAUTIOUSLY AVOIDED THESE DEPTHS AND REMAINED MAROONED ON THE SHINY
SURFACES OF THE BANAL." John
O'Donohue, Anam Cara, a Book of Celtic Wisdom
When asked to create a garment with a botanical theme, I hesitated.
I was concerned with time constraints as well as my creative ability to
design something unique within the boundaries of my own weaving and design
style. Because of some personal life changes, I had not ventured into new
design techniques and challenges for some time. But I decided that this
opportunity would force me to “stretch and grow.” The time seemed
right to add new dimension to my designing skills—and to my life.
