In my continuing quest to find any art I may be able to do during my recovery I have discovered many limitations. While cutting out these small hexagons, first with scissors and then rotary cutter, I was pushing and moving in ways I shouldn’t have been. Oh, boy, did I suffer the following day. Lesson… Continue reading Hexagons and Giveaway
I finally have a camera set up at my Handi Quilter Sweet Sixteen quilting machine so hopefully more free motion videos will be coming to my YouTube channel. Here are the two most recent. One quilting a simple carrot and another painting a border after free motion quilting it. Enjoy!
Funny how things get pushed to the back burner or taken off the heat altogether. A short time ago someone commented on my Fabric Painted Landscape in a Hoop video that I posted in 2018. As I was looking through files to find some information about that video I found several clips I hadn’t remembered… Continue reading Painted Fabric in a Hoop Part 2
Just revisiting an old miniature art quilt. I love how the sunlight seems to break over the mesa.
I was almost a Halloween baby having been born the day before and have always enjoyed the end of October. When our kids were little I loved making their costumes and painting their faces.

Early yesterday I fished a tiny pale aqua colored bird’s egg shell out of our waterfall and set it on a… Continue reading Nature and Art
One of my “kids” had an appointment and the other was going to the zoo to take photographs so I tagged along. I walked through Balboa Park which is where our world famous zoo is, stopping at the reflecting pond, it was nice to see this artist painting. It was a beautiful day and the… Continue reading Taking a walk…
Last post I was writing about lizards copulating in the garden. Today as Kona and I were hanging out on the deck she became very alert at some noise coming from the side yard ivy. I heard it but couldn’t figure it out until I spotted it running past the shed… An iguana, at least… Continue reading Now That Was Surprising!
A couple weeks ago I was working on a new Heart MeAnndering video. When I finished stitching I wasn’t happy with one of the petals, so I ripped it out, fixed it and added some French knots. Then before editing I discovered that at some point during filming I must have left the camera on… Continue reading Heart Art Gone Awry
