My holiday gift wrap!


 This is my first attempt to do wrapping paper with Spoonflower.  Just got the rolls and they are putting a smile on my face.    Enjoy!!

Corrections, Please

This is the fifth module for Chroma:Red.  It refers to all those student essays I KINDLY corrected with non-threatening green ink.  But I always secretly wished I could really say what I  meant with the power of RED!!

Some Eye Candy . . .

Arctic Summer is a paper and ink collage I did last year and it is the basis for five subsequent pieces done in fabric by myself and four other artists.   It will be on display in Whittier, CA,  in January-February 2014.  Details to follow.

Algae is a brand new piece that is made by piecing fabrics, many of which I dyed myself.  Once stitched, I added a lot of antique lace and other embellishing threads for movement and texture.    It's 18" x 24".

Gone for a Couple of Weeks to Australia

Fabulous trip!  The opening of the Oz Quilt show in Canberra was worth the trip in itself.  I saw A LOT of amazing textiles including drop dead gorgeous tapestries by Valerie Kirk (thank you, Valerie, for jurying my piece into the exhibit!), but my  fav is below:  "Perhaps Renewal" by Marianne Penberthy.  The essence of Australia's landscape. Haunting.
