Welcome to my Blog, A little art, and a lot of Friendship

I really don't have to much to say today.. Sort of tired from working on the newest project. But I love this old wheel at our front gate with the red apple cactus. Reminds me that I have to do some cactus trimming or no one will be able to get out of their car. Blogging has reminded me to look around and see the beauty, sometimes we just think of our yard as work. It is a work I enjoy, but I forget to look at the little vignettes that the plants make, some on their own, others with help from garage sale items.
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.
