It’s interesting to me how time can seem to go by slowly and other times so quickly. I was exciting to be trying some new things (for me anyway) on the gel print plate. I made one print and for some reason decided to clean my plate; nothing would work, I mean nothing! So after… Continue reading It’s November!
I hoped to have my roadrunner piece finished but between the designing, cutting, and next drying time, it’s going to take longer than I thought it would. So, I’m sharing some pieces here, I’ve used different painting techniques on them. I’m sure I have shared some of them in the past but I think they… Continue reading Surface Show

I think… Continue reading A Challenge with Hand Embroidery
I’m recovering from the quilt show where we had near 400 quilts in the general display and over one hundred quilts for sale in our Quilt Sales booth. I had help from some awesome volunteers, members of SDQS (who are also volunteers!), and from my patient husband (who has helped me with this show for… Continue reading San Diego Quilt Show
Well, it has been a long time since I posted but here I am again. We recently made it through the 2017 San Diego Quilt Show (the 36th Annual) and what an inspiring show it was.
