ARTASTICS - THREADS


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.

Wall Hangings for Embroidery Swap Group

After I saw the beautiful composition of Linda's Wall Hanging, I had to utilize the embroidery pattern in my Wall Hangings. I created the first one in response to a Horse Theme Swap in Embroidery Swap Group. I foolishly used an original photo of my Aunt Marge, 1935 on her horse in Walden, New York...I could not send it off.

So, I created the below Horse-Theme Wall Hanging...Tammy was thrilled since this is the theme in her den...how things evolve! We are both happy. The "Shoebox Faces" is a Huskey Designs http://www.huskeyembroiderydesign.com/


The Asian design, "Horse and Master" is by Embroidery Library. http://www.embroiderylibrary.com/

I also made a Wall Hanging with a Wine and Grapes Theme. My friend Linda sent the neat tapestry of grapes on the vine! The design, "Your Name Bar," is by Grafixx Girl. http://www.garrison-grafixx.com/
