IMG_3103.jpgAbout Elizabeth’s creation:

I started working on Elizabeth at the same time I was preparing an Advent sermon about Elizabeth.  I thought of what an amazing presence she must have been for Mary, how comforting to have a kinswomen who offered her home, acceptance and love.  I thought about those aunties in my own life, adult women who at different times in my life offered me home, acceptance, and love.  There was usually a quilt involved, and a nice hot cup of tea.  IMG_2897
