Incredible Edible

I happened upon an old photograph the other day, a reminder – Years ago my family and friends (an artsy and creative bunch!) would hold theme parties called Incredible Edibles. The idea was to bring something that was indeed visually incredible while at the same time edible. I don’t remember very many of the creations though I do recollect the “Leaning tower of pizza” which was a tower several personal size pizzas tall, that really did lean. Then there was something that resembled road kill made of mashed potatoes, ketchup, and meatloaf (I don’t recall eating that or maybe I just blocked it from my mind!). Around that time I was teaching my miniature landscape classes, so of course, my contribution was… a totally edible landscape, complete with trees and a lake. Fun and tasty too.

Have you made something out of the norm that was incredible and edible?

I started sewing and designing using fabric, thread, and paper when I was a child. I taught myself to make quilts, at first not following the "rules," then watched some experts, learned the rules, and made many hand quilted and appliqued quilts. I spent years focusing on miniature landscape quilts. Now I am a fiber and mixed media artist and that encompasses everything I have a passion for. I have taught, lectured, and my work have show nationally and internationally, some pieces have been published.
