I also notice that I simplify my life and I in turn become very in touch with my self and spirit. Has anyone else noticed anything similar to this?

I think one thing leads to another.  When you make the effort to dine conciously, you start making the effort in other areas of your life as well.

I don't see why not. You can pretty much make them in any fabric you feel like making. I'm working on a small brocade one for my kid just because I found a cheap remnant of green brocade.

I'd been considering a suede for myself.

I just told everyone I'd decided to go veg.

I was raised non-vegetarian and my in-laws knew me as non-vegetarian for several years when I decided to swtich.

And I started bringing my lunchbox around to family things. Knowing that I'd be under scrutiny for a while, I'd deliberately pack stuff that was familiar... peanut butter and jelly, pizza, vegetable soup, rice pilaf, potato salad, chili, pasta, etc. 

I wanted them to see I wasn't eating anything "weird" and I wanted them to see that it was already on their radar.. stuff they ate themselves all the time.

Later when I went vegan, everyone was already used to me being vegetarian so the change was very slight and by that point I could bring and eat more exotic fare without anyone batting an eye.

As a child I was always curious. Why do we eat meat? Isn't that dead animal? Why drink milk from a cow? We don't drink cat milk or horse milk.

In 1998 I went vegetarian for health reasons. College eating was doing a number on my cholesterol and I was sick of fried, greasy stuff. I woul dhave liked to go vegan but I didn't have enough knowledge nor support (access to foods, cookbooks, websites, etc.)

In 2004 when my kid was born, I tried to make the move toward vegan and where I am right now -- mostly vegan. While it can still be hard at times (dining out, parties) it's been worthwhile and what started for health has now become enmeshed with my spirituality.

Very nice!

Does it hold everything you wanted it to? It's kind of hard to tell the size from the angle of the pix.

Another elementary school girl's skirt and the last star skirt. The star skirt's underlayer was left peeking out on purpose to make it different from the one where it is even.

This costume is for an elementary school girl... same ankle-length a-line skirt I've been making for the others. This time I didn't bother drawing a paper pattern. I just drew it right on the fabric.
