I am playing on my design wall.. Here are variations of my kite. I bought some Japanese fabric, the blue and white eons ago. Did not matter that I did not have a project in mind at the time. It is Kimono fabric in a roll.. I made the octagon shapes and hand stitched the Sashiko designs on them with white Perle Cotton. This just did not look right. Funny how, sometimes I have this idea in my mind, and the quilt just does not want to work with me. Onward.
I am a mixed media fiber/quilt artist who loves to work with gourds,and jewelry. I am easily distracted with the next project, and have many going at one time. I have been teaching Fabric Dyeing and Beginning gourd art for many years. I am blessed with my own home studio. We live in the rolling hills near Yosemite National Park, in central Calif. U.S.A. This is a place of Inspiration, Blue Skies and Great Friends. I volunteer with several organizations,and have memberships in P.E.O., Coarsegold Historical So., Sierra Art Trails, Madera Circle Gallery, Yosemite Western Artist, Timberline Gallery and Sierra Mountain Quilters. I teach at my home studio and at local quilt gatherings.
