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.

Aunt Rose

I so enjoyed embroidering this "Fishing Bird Tree" for my Aunt Rose in Florida...Even though she visits often, I miss her! She has always enjoyed a trip to the lake and catch a few...she knows how to clean, fillet, and cook them too!
This great pattern is from There are 24 Bird-Tree Designs! This is the first one I have stitched...neat!


  1. This is terrific! How did you do it? Your auntie is going to love it!

  2. Jan,

    How wonderful! With all the fishing Mom & Dad have done in their lifetime; this is a most precious gift. What a fantastic and unique gift! You are such a special person and most thoughtful.

    All my love,


  3. Hi Jan,

    What a beautiful gift! With all the fishing Mom & Dad have done over the years, this is just perfect. She, and he, will just love this! You are so wonderful and good to your Aunt Rose!
