YoYo Challenge, Nancy's Old English Cottage Garden
Nancy said" this was a very difficult challenge for me. All the pieces were so beautiful, I hated to cut them up. It is hard for me to get out of the rectangular box, so I chose to keep the pieces I received as close to the original shapes as possible." Nancy named this challenge piece"Olde English Cottage Garden, as the original theme was garden related.
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.
