Tea and Yarn
Isn't it a beautiful tea cup. My dear friend Carolyn painted it, her art is magnificent. Such patience! I was recently given some little bulbs, and they are developing and growing taller each day.. This yarn I bought last year at Dharma, aren't the colors just yummy.. I will finish my hat first before I start, because I have no idea what the 3 balls I bought could make.. I just liked the colors,, will have to bring them to my knitting class on Monday..Maybe another scarf, a felted purse???.. I need something easy with out counting to take to camp.. and this is wool.. I bet it could be felted.. hummm, now all sorts of ideas are popping up.
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.
