Peggy, My Beautiful Blooming YoYos
Peggy wrote me, " As I looked at my "cut" pieces I realized they reflected my friends. Each unique, different shapes and colors and all beautiful. I could not change them, so I molded them together into a fabric collage. I enhanced each with thread work, then molded them together. To me, the collage looks like a bouquet of flowers in a vase. I call it m"My beautfiful Blooming YoYo's." If you look closely, you will see that there is "molding", there are special tucks and pleats that make this piece 3 dimensional. Oh, what fun we have.
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.
