Self Speak, Quotes, and Mantras
Self Speak, Quotes, and Mantras - the Start of My Group Show. By Linda J. MacKay
So what are some sayings that might resonate with you? You might have a more extensive list than mine. But what was interesting, was to discover how many sayings I have incorporated into my daily self speak and mental aerobics.
Beauties of the Land
This newspaper article describes an art quilt show held in Hawaii in 2014. My textile art piece 'Ghost Palms - City of Refuge' was on the front page of West Hawaii Today and helped depict various aspects of the Big Island. The fabric was hand-dyed using dyes and snow brought down from Mauna Kea, Hawaii's tallest mountain. Silhouettes of palm trees specific to the City of Refuge site were incorporated and the outlined shape of the Big Island highlights the centre of the sun.
Fibre Arts Network article
Shortly after my father died in late February 2015, I was scheduled to write the editorial for the Fibre Art Network newsletter. I used the funeral and casket flowers to dye some fabric which I then used in the portrait of my parents. Art has always been a therapy for me during troubled times and this article explains some of the process and methodology.
Alberta Home & Gardens - Top of the Hill
In the summer of 2011 I had my garden group over for a garden party and tour. The magazine 'Alberta Home and Garden' sent along a photographer and a writer to also attend. Although I wasn't actually interviewed , the writer followed me around as I spoke to various friends and wrote her article based on her impressions of that day.
Gardens West magazine article "Living on the Wild Side"
In the summer of 2013, a photographer and writer for Gardens West Magazine toured the garden independently and showcased various aspects of the rain watering system, the various garden rooms, decor, and gazebos. I like a wilder English garden look and had laughingly told the writer I liked to garden on the wild side. She liked the terminology so much she titled the article 'Living on the Wild Side'.....not quite what I had said! Quite a different connotation for me!

I had an intruder today
The following is an email I wrote to Tom when I had an intruder in the house and had to deal with it myself while he was away on business. Tom enjoyed the read so much I forwarded it to several friends. Since then I have had many requests to read this article so I include it under my other writings. And no, I have not submitted it to Vinyl Cafe to be read on the radio. Enjoy!
Country Lane Quilters 25 Year Anniversary Program
This is part of the history of the Country Lane Quilters of Millarville. I summarized much of the history as I emceed the 25 year anniversary event in 2015. I include it here with my writings so it is accessible by the community if needed and so that our history is not lost. Respectfully submitted, Linda MacKay
Eulogy for Dad
I am including this eulogy I wrote for my Dad within my writings as an example of how one man's legacy lives on in the next generation and generations to come. What we do and how we act today impacts everyone around us. We do make a difference.
Eulogy for Gracie
Several friends have asked to read the eulogy I wrote for my mare Gracie, so I also include this amongst my miscellaneous writings. May this eulogy remind you of how special your pets are to you and help you with your sense of loss when they depart. Blessings, Linda
