Elements #29 is an important quilt because it was one of those that I felt I was moving in a different direction with my work.   I simply love this little piece!  It measures 23″ x 25″ and it’s made from some of my brightest hand-dyed fabric!  I’ve decided to sell it for $200.  Please […]

I’m so very excited to be finally quilting this today!  Outside rain is drizzling, I finished my shopping for Thanksgiving dinner yesterday and I have a few hours unspoken for.  I’ve loved working on this quilt; the vibrant colors of orange and blue are cheery and bold.  The baby it’s intended for was born months […]

I Sold it!  Thank you for your interest!  Stay tuned for more! I sold all of my fabric in a very short time!  Makes me think I should do more of this!  So today, I have a collection of blues, all at least fat-quarter size. I’m selling this little pack for $20 plus $6 S&H […]

Addendum: I quickly sold out after posting this post.  Thank you to those who purchased my fabric!  I hope you like them! I have some leftover fabric from my class.  These are fabrics I dyed myself, and with all hand-dyed fabrics, slight variations in colors expected.  I can tell you tho, the variations are slight; […]

  Last weekend I taught two classes in two days on Oahu.  What fun!  Seriously, I was a little nervous and uncertain about how these classes were going to turn out, but thank goodness they went just fine and the students seemed to have a very nice time.  After a brief introduction and explanation of […]

Wow, where has the time gone? Here it is November already,  and I’ve been spending time lately getting ready for a couple of classes I’m going to teach this weekend on Oahu!  My studio is a mess, but the work looks great! I was hoping to die a little fabric today, but the weather outside […]

The ides of October?!  Already!  I’m diving into the “rainy season” here with a few indoor projects.  This one, a gift for a newborn, has been on my mind for quite some time.  Thankfully, the colors of the season are inspiring me and today I plan to baste it and possibly get started on the […]

There is something peaceful and relaxed about breakfast on a weekend morning.  Fresh-squeezed orange juice and oatmeal against a backdrop of Billie Holiday and roses from the garden. It doesn’t get any better than this.

Oh my, if any of you have built a house, you would understand.  Building from scratch is difficult!  In our case, building a house imported from Bali in a remote place like Hana is downright mind-boggeling!  It’s been a SLOW process… check out my old posts and you’ll see I first posted about this project […]

There is a cartoon by a cartoon illustrator named Robert Leighton that was in a recent issue of the New Yorker that I identify with: Along those lines, I’ve decided to unearth my complete quilt collection and catalogue my work.  Looking at my living room, I must have over a hundred quilts here… big to […]

I’m entering a new phase in my art career and it feels good!  I’ll be teaching two classes in Honolulu November 7th and 8th, and although I’ve taught before, this is the first time I’ll be teaching to this audience.  As part of the preparation, I need to create samples.  The very act of selecting […]

I’ve been working on a few small quilts lately.  It’s not my usual stuff; I’m using straight lines and chain piecing.   I have in mind to make a couple hundred blocks and piece them together into a couple of small baby quilts. There is something to be said about the humble beginnings of commercial […]

There is a beautiful poem by Sukhvinder Sircar that spoke to me while I was going through what was easily the darkest spell of my adult life.  I hesitated to share it with you because that whole period was oh so personal, and I needed to traverse that landscape alone.  All that is changing now […]

  I’d thought I’d share with you some pictures from our “Gloaming” show at Etui in New York.  You can read more about the venue here!  I won’t be able to make it to the artist’s reception, but I’m pretty sure Natalya and Vivien will be there!
