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.

Christmas Crazy Quilts

Dawn has sent me another beautiful Christmas Crazy Quilt. We were matched for the trade in Art4Mail Yahoo Group. The Gingerbread Crazy Quilt swap was a -one-on-one. I like that she always personalizes the squares! Again, she has shown her embroidery talent with special and detailed stitches. What a beautiful Christmas gift....

I received another Christmas Crazy Quilt from Rita in the same Yahoo Group. Look how the two match so well! Rita included a gingerbread too and created beautiful embroidery stitches. I so like the ribbon embroidery around a vintage Christmas photo.
They complement each other so well.
The selected fabrics, similar design, and the great quality stitching in both offer an opportunity to create a treasured Christmas wall-hanging!

Thank you both for your caring attention and very creative work!
