What runs through us

5 months agoArts / Fiber Art : Spirit Cloth

The leaves thin as September goes, and I have spotted a few deer not far from the garden. Very young ones, meaning there are more. More than Spring. I harvested the big chard, knowing it will be gone in a...

Curiosity and the Creative Artist

Illustration: Mark Rothko. No. 14. Curiosity may well be a species trait, we are after all where we are today, and know what we know, from the micro to the macro world, because of a collective curiosity about the world in us and around us. Show More Summary

Small Journeys in cloth

Every small journey is like starting over. A chance to take a new path. Pack less. Learn more. Two moons, One like the shadow of the other, Over the mountains. With a sense of something larger. (And the waves keep...

More like a September Morning

Good Morning. The storm has passed. The air is clear. For this I am grateful. A thin old quilt is just enough on this slightly chilled morning. Sweater weather is coming. I can smell it. There is a sense of...

Big storms

Lightnin' This cat becomes electrically charged. This time so did my needle. Not sure how I caught this. But it was very cool. Shutting down and taking cover.

How cloth might be like self

5 months agoArts / Fiber Art : Spirit Cloth

Cloth bleeds. Cloth cries. Cloth waits. I am just sitting here this morning thinking about how one thing might be like another but not be realized. Might not that knowing just be sort of a result of a deepening friendship?...

Just holding

I could sit and stare at a big cloth roll for hours. How the far away places come together and touch in unexpected ways. Home is under the needle still. The challenge of making a whole from such a puzzle...

Behind the studio door…

Recently, I was talking with a good friend about the fact that I have a hard time telling anyone about my quilts that end up in magazines. I admit it. I’m afraid. I’m afraid that no one will like them. Or worse yet, that someone will find a mistake or flaw in my design. Heaven […]


I finally finished this quilt right before I left. it's the first one I ever sent out to be quilted and I needed to add the binding when it came back. Now I just have to get the hooks figured out to hang it behind my dining table.

Vacation - September 2014

I had a chance to return to Weston's this year and it was nice but a little sad. When I'm there I have a lot of time to reflect on prior years and I miss my parents that are now gone and my second parents that can't travel now. The new...Show More Summary

Ms. Kiljeaden

I don't think Ms. Kiljeaden is overly fond of little dog. She hides till he goes home.


I just love this little dog. That seems to be his new name. He only comes when you yell "little dog, little dog". This is him waiting for his night night cashews. I told him it was time but he hadn't had his snack yet. His mom calls this eye balling you.


I was finally able to finish the last t-shirt quilt the night before I left and the new owner loved them. I think as quilters we just take quilts for granted a lot of times. I didn't know what to say when she started crying.

Indian Summer

Hot It's hot these last days. Suddenly. Very hot. Humid. The center of the season seems to have shifted. We've been up early. Rising in the dark before the heat of the day. This weather makes my hair very curly....

The Artist and the Critic

Illustration: Gaston de Latenay. Landscape. From the larger society down to single relationships, many support the creative arts. However, many don't and the negative is often the louder and listened to more frequently than the positive. Show More Summary

The world in September

Well. Late in the evening, yesterday, the last day of August, there was enough rain to sail a boat here. The roof in the studio leaked, but today all is quenched. Water has gone deep. It was a dry season....
