Wondrous Wednesdays: to be or [k]not to be….

My mind reels over the titles I might have chosen for this piece:

  • a Hot Mess
  • it’s [K]not fair!
  • it’s [K]not happening…

but Mr. Shakespeare won out.

All this to say that my creative efforts of weaving a ruana are tied up in knots right now!

This past weekend, I set to work winding my fabulous new yarns to prepare for warping and wefting (is that a word??).

The silks caught me up short.

Both skeins left me tied up in knots.

I shared with my husband that perhaps, I am being urged into practicing patience.


But 6 hours and about 2 yards of windable silk later, I think it’s time to cut the knot.

Yes, I am cutting, re-knotting (in a purposeful fashion) and continuing my winding journey….

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!
