For the past few days the temperatures here have been around 90°F, we don’t have AC but my studio stays cool. Today looks to be finally cooling off a bit. The coming of fall had me working on another Stir Crazy Member Challenge for Visions Art Museum, which will be published for members the first… Continue reading Falling into October
… for leaky roofs! We don’t get a lot of rain here but when we do there are always surprises, but that’s another story, I’ll spare you. Last post I mentioned Susan Lenz because we each had pieces in the Visions Art Museum Day of the Dead exhibit. Not too long ago I sent Susan… Continue reading ‘Tis the Season…
The Day of the Dead exhibit is over but I did get there to see it and the other four fantastic exhibit on display at Visions Art Museum (in partnership with New Americans Museum). When I walked in the first thing I noticed was actually the piece next to mine, it was so unique, the… Continue reading Museum Visit
This month has flown by and I hope it’s not because at the end I’ll be a year older, haha! I taught a fun painted leaves class early in the month. My Unmasking the Soul piece is hanging at VAM but I haven’t made it there yet. On the 12th I gave a presentation to… Continue reading October Happenings

I’m always amazed this show is put on by an all volunteer non-profit organization and I’m proud to be… Continue reading Quilt Show

Joy that so many visitors and participants come together to experience quilt making and fiber art, and exhaustion for being part of, in this case, an all volunteer organization in an almost 55,000… Continue reading A Good Kind of Exhaustion
I was gifted an herb planter set for Mother’s Day (from my Mister), and even though they were in a sunny window, it wasn’t going well until I placed them outside in the (filtered) sun. At first I thought – In jars without drain holes, bad idea but… Now they are very happy and I… Continue reading Something New and a Little Green
I’m happy to say that pieces from my Photograph on Fiber series will be one of the Special Exhibits at the 2016 San Diego Quilt Show. That link has all the information about the show. If you don’t already know, these pieces began as a collaboration with my son whose photograph of a lone leaf… Continue reading Special Exhibit!
