We sit on the very edge of Autumn.

The air is clean, crisp, scented with molding leaves and garden stock.

The sumac surprises me along the bike path,

reminding me that soon, color will explode

across the fields, yards, and anywhere there is foliage.

My black sweaters are ready to wear,

along with my boots and menswear patterned trousers and skirts.

Apples for saucing, zucchini for baking, and beauty for beholding.

Bring it on…

I am a fabric artist and a professional minister in the Catholic Church. I am married for 40+ years to a most fabulous man. We have 4 adult children, 2 daughter-in-laws ( who we also consider to our children!) and 4 grandbabies. I love to weave, paint silk, sew and design garments for myself; bead, read, write and color. I am also a spiritual Companion/Director and have a special place in my soul for women who are healing and in need of healing from trauma and abuse. I love coffee, quiet reflective prayer time at my kitchen table and long walks to breathe in the Holy Spirit. I would like to learn how to spin yarn and will someday create a spun, hand dyed/painted, beaded, woven fabulous garment of peace!
