Life's Journey is a mural of Threads.

The threads of my mural are influenced by my spiritual practices, personal values, the love of friends, and special people that have been my guides. They are strengthened by my husband's love and support. The colors are brilliant with the influence of my enthusiasm for continued exploration for meaning and truth.

My threads will continue to weave their unique patterns as I explore life's roads, paths, alleys, and avenues. My beliefs will provide many hues as I continue search for a personal meaning of my existence. Artistic challenges and accomplishments will add the sparkle!

The colors radiate the pulse of my life. There is a rhythm to the design. I have danced, whirled and twirled, even stumbled, but, I do have style!

I am excited about sharing the developing design with you through this Blog.

The Seamstress - An Historical Novel

"...individual fabrics, like people, had unique limitations and benefits. Some were tissue thin, lovely but fragile,undone by the smallest snag. Some were so closely woven that you could not see the fibers. Others were course , thick, and scratchy. There was no changing the character of the cloth,. It could be cut, ripped, sewn into dresses or trousers or table settings, but no matter the form it took, a cloth always remained the same. Its true nature was fixed...."

I just completed this indulging book. Although it is fiction the authorFrances de Pontes Peebles , incorporated many historical facts. I enjoyed the references to sewing. I highly recommend it.
