My process is uncomplicated but often yields unexpected results. It is rare for the completed scene to be in my mind when I begin a panel. I choose several remnants that catch my eye, find contrasting or matching colors or patterns, and then follow my imagination. All appliques are handmade originals and I use both hand and machine stitch. My work is wrapped from start to finish with the surprise element of prayer. The outcome of the projects can be soul-stirring. I have learned to relax and flow with the inspiration, especially since fabric is a forgiving medium. Just as life can get a little wild; I often leave edges raw and strands dangling.
