Wondrous  Wednesday: I just keep on rolling…

The ruana weaving is about 25% complete! I am enjoying this project in a different way than my initial works. The feel of the fibers as they slide through my fingers is tender, poetic if that makes sense. The lanolin on the wool, the fine yet strong alpaca and the airy softness of the silk draw me into a dialogue with the threads. I am captivated by the movement and by the fabric being birthed. I can hardly wait to wrap myself in its beauty…

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!
