Moon over Nine

A New Years Resolution Made Me A Better Artist

Way way back in late 2006, I decided that for a New Year’s resolution I would start 2007 with a weekly quilt each week, with a set of rules and a mindset that I would be in my studio more than I was before. Of course, I had no idea that at the time I...

Considering, Reconsidering and Just Going

7 months agoArts / Fiber Art : Spirit Cloth

Almost 2016. Patchwork. Considering that. Grid. Reconsidering that. And blanket. And holding center. Vibrating outward. Many things might be considered at once. It's always that way I suppose. But what I'm considering more often these days is Considering itself. I...

Long Time

Nine for Dark and Light

Simple Little Pouch

Only five more days until Christmas! Are you ready? I am, but I’m not. Where does the time go?  I finished up my first semester of grad school last week and I was dying to get into my sewing room and create. All I’ve been doing, though, is laundry and errands and baking and napping. […]

What to do when your work is REJECTED.

What I used for my Christmas Cards this year.

I usually hand make my holiday cards each year.  I know it sounds crazy, but it’s a nice thing I like to do each year.  I usually make huge editions of 60-80 cards. Due to circumstances that just didn’t allow me to get them done, I used one of my weekly quilts from the 2011...
