Creative – Spiritual Cookies

My spiritual cookies this week relate to creative activity. First, here is one of my paintings in the Balance series:

Second, I’m updating a fiber art piece I made last year, which relates to illumination, in a tongue-in-cheek fashion. (I’ll add the whole piece to my gallery when it is fully revised):Bright Idea, detail, fiber art by Janet Hovde

Third, I am (at last) in the flow of creating a commissioned prayer/meditation Signature quilt. I was antsy to start it sooner, but I think I needed to experience the infusion of love  (mentioned in my last post) prior to starting this piece for her. I am grateful she has been so understanding about the timing, and I know she is getting a better healing art piece because of her patience.

Work in progress

Fourth, I am looking forward to facilitating a workshop on Inner Wisdom next weekend, and was able to write a guest post for the talented Michele Bergh on this topic, so near and dear to my heart.  I especially know Michele through her webhosting services, but she is also an artist and a healer.

And my last cookie: I got to partake in a visual feast at the Minnesota Contemporary Quilter’s meeting. I didn’t know about “show and tell” for grownups until I joined this group, and it is not to be missed.

A pretty rich week, no? And what were your spiritual cookies this week? Care to share?


  1. Wow you’ve created a lot this week! I especially like the third artwork… I think creating a quilt asks for much patience! Have a great Sunday. 🙂

  5. Very nice work Janet. Love your fiber art piece, very different and beautiful. I loved reading how beautifully everything in your life is flowing. What an inspiration.
    My spiritual cookies this past weekend were celebrating my parents 55th wedding anniversary at our home and the following day attending a bridal shower for my nephew/godson’s fiancée. Lots for 2 days but what an amazing weekend reconnecting with family.
