The soothing sounds of weaving......Debbie Barrett-Jones Textiles

Some may find this sound annoying...... and I would totally understand that. It is not for everyone. But for me, I could fall asleep to this sound. I just might make an app for that. The soothing sounds of weaving. ;)

Artwork In Truman Medical Center; Part 1

YAY!! I dream come true. My piece is up at Truman Medical Center in their Radiology Hallway. Without going into too much detail right now, my work being in this exact location means a lot to me. Right after Emma, my five year old daughter was born, I started a two year long journey of chronic daily headaches. And during that time, I had four MRI's taken of my brain that came with unanswered questions, lots of fear and a whole lot of anxiety. Fast forward now, ( I will write more about that time in my Healing with Weaving Section soon. ) I am doing a lot better. I still deal with lots of headaches but I know now how to manage them better. And I am trying everyday as a gift. So, to have my work in a place that could help patients like me, scared and fearful of the "would if's" and the unknown, means so much. I hope my work will help some people find a little more peace and comfort.

My sweet Cora came with me to visit the hospital.
