Here are a couple of excerpts from my journal.

November 7, 2013 - It's 12:50 pm on this bright & chilly Thursday afternoon with a stiff wind wrestling the brilliant yellow leaves from the boughs that held them so securely only a few short days ago.  Here I sit with my eyes gazing upon Ken's Cardinal preparing my thoughts for a new adventure in fabric & thread.  Where I'm being lead only the future knows.  Nothing is for certain, but with a leap of faith I'm ready to begin.  LORD, may You bless this journey as You have all the ones that have come to past & may it bring You much glory.

November 9, 2013 - I always get so excited to take a piece of Ken's artwork & transform it into a piece of textile art.  For me it is a soulful journey with my son that goes far beyond our worldly existence.  It's the common thread in which God has used to intertwine our spirits together.
