Today I’m sending a hug out to my friends, one or two in particular. For the one in Europe missing her friends and family, this is for you. You have to get through the hard outer shell to get to the heart of your trip and the fun you’re going to have. For my friend lying on the couch feeling poorly, I send you this. May your recovery be swift and your consolations many. I watch “The Importance of Being Earnest,” when I’m not well, it usually lifts my spirits. For those already away or going away and not feeling so sure, this is also for you. Whether it be an internship in another state or foreign and distant Nederland, I send you this hug and my best wishes that it’s amazing.
Keep your chin up!
Last night while doing some research for the book, I came across a treasure. The jewel colours of these beautiful linens and brocades, their rich shades and patterns were balm to my weary eyes. I had been clickity clacking at the keyboard for hours and now found myself in the world of “Elizabeth Morgan, Church Linens and Vestments.” Even the words, many unfamiliar, intrigue and captivate, words like ophreys, mitres and chalice veils, not to mention chausuble (can’t not think of Oscar Wilde) and the very suggestive, super frontal. The names of the colours equally delight, with Pentecost red, Roman purple and Winchester silvery - violet. If you need fabric for vestments, this lady knows her liturgical linen, or even if you just want a scrap of something lovely for a project - have a look.
