One of my most favorite prayers is Dame Julian of Norwich’s …
“And All Shall Be Well, and All Shall Be Well, and All Manner of Things Shall Be Well….”
This prayer is a mantra that I repeat to myself through thick and thin, through the darkest nights and hardest moments- we all have them, and they are transformed into a wellspring of compassion, but, oh my, how incredibly challenging it can be at times to navigate them.
Thank you, Dame Julian, for these words to live by…..
I love weaving words, and have done many woven homages to Dame Julian.
But, this is the first time I have woven her prayer in tapestry-
She is approximately 36 inches tall.
I wove the central tapestry panel on my Mirrix 8 inch tapestry loom at 6 epi.
The side and back panels were woven on my 4 harness floor loom at 12 epi.
On her face, there are bits of sea glass, fragments of pottery and seashells, as well as driftwood.
