For those of you wanting only a peek, I present to you my latest creation: Elements #35 – Restructuring 22″ x 18″ The theme of restructuring stuck with this one until the bitter end.  While sewing on the binding, I realized I had made a mistake… that teal strip in the lower left hand corner […]

With the kids well into their second week of school I’m catching up on that “to do” list that got neglected these past few months.  Summer is great, don’t get me wrong I love it, but there is only so much of the slow-life that one can live.  It’s time to get busy! My current […]

This weekend is a full one… but I’m still finding pockets of time to work on my latest.  I’m beginning to think I will only be able to finish one by the end of the month.  I’ve decided to roll with it rather than resist the obvious.  I hope you are having a productive weekend […]

It’s been quite a week for me!  Medically that is.  Let’s see we have one broken bone, one surgery, stitches, another doctor’s appointment, immunizations… a cold… not me, thankfully.  The good news is everybody should be just fine!  Now, with the kids fully back in school I have the house to myself and I can […]

One of the books I took with me on my trip was “The Artist’s Way” by Julia Cameron.  Now, I’ve read this before,  but I wanted to revisit it because the book offers so much.  Soon, I hope to start the exercises outlined in the book and share my experience with my fiber-artist gang… the […]

We are back from our family vacation alive and well!  We survived!  I don’t say that lightly… I mean, we really survived!  My darling husband took us on an adventure, a long trek if you will, to a giant mountain lake in the western Sierras.  Now, I’ve never been backpacking, unless you consider a few […]
