Wondrous Wednesdays:That liminal place…

The state of liminality intrigues me.

Sitting in the doorway of newness; the almost but not yet place of birthing a new piece of art, jewelry, garment, essay; awaiting that next place in life–these are a few of the images swirling through my waking and deep sleeping dreams in the past eighteen months.

I attempted to give a face to these liminal places in a small bit of hand weaving about a year ago. I wrapped cotton warp with wool yarns; mounted the 6″ x 6″ framework on ivory silk, and sprinkled in various beads and a small shell. The frame was simple sticks lashed together. 

Try it on and decide if it speaks of liminality to you…

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!
