I am a woman searching for my inner goddess and using fabrics, words and photography as my road map. I find great comfort and order in my creative efforts and hope that in sharing them you find a peace also. Welcome and Be Blessed!

Walking in Blessings

I have chosen to make a new life in Wise Virginia. Not a move that was comfortable or understood by many in my tribe. Through the course of beginning this new life I have learned many things about Susan. Many of these things might have been obvious to those who knew me but they were things that I needed to learn one more time so that this time around I might finally get them. 

One of the big lessons I learned is that I truly do have value. I am worth more then just being someone's wife, someone's mother. I have value and worth and as such I am deserving of those things that I dream about. I am now watching a huge dream come true and it is so delicious to think about the reality of this dream and know that I chose to fulfill my dreams and not settle. Good enough is just not good enough. With that said I present this:  just a small vision of my dream coming true.

Soon there will be a porch leading up to my front door.

The back will host a really big porch. I figure I will spend many wondrous hours on my back porch.

I have amazing huge rocks forming a natural garden below my house, and room for some great trees and flowers and veggies.

Not the best photo but it is from the living room area facing the study. The study had a solid wall separating it from a bedroom further back. I had the wall taken out and asked that they replicate the original archway that leads into the study.

Because the back bedroom was not quite big enough for my quilting machine Maxine I needed to come up with a different solution. She should fit perfectly in this archway.

Now I have the studio of my dreams. Can’t wait to share my kitchen with you. That was the reason I just had to have this particular house. The process of getting this house has been such a walk of faith and a step of courage for me. I am forever changed because of what I am learning about myself. Now that this part of my dream is coming true it is time for me to focus on the next couple steps into my future.  I can’t wait to see what comes next as I have learned that I am truly walking in blessings. Yes, it is good to be me.

Red Queen's Mission Statement

I believe that things can always be cured with a hug and a cup of tea, fixed with either a needle and thread, duct tape, WD40 or coke, and that prayer works every time. I take in strays whether in animal or childlike form. I have been mother to many for a time and this is my way of keeping up with some of those straying children that I miss. I appreciate shock value and use it often to remind people that the world is round and colorful and we are not all living in square brown cardboard boxes with little holes cut in for windows. Look for the warm fuzzies- God delivers them up fresh every day just to say- I think you are pretty darned special- so special that I have your picture up on my fridge for life and I am sending you a hug to remind you that you matter to me.
