Welcome to my Blog, A little art, and a lot of Friendship
Tuesday, March 16, 2010
Hey, the gang is here, hard to get them all together.. We work on a variety of projects.. This time, some cuddle quilts, little hand quilts for Children's Hospital, and our own projects. Not to mention the good food we enjoyed. Thank you to Diane Ward who patiently puts this all together each year. She had wonderful plastic boxes to put our projects in, and made us all little fabric Purses for us to organize our cards in. Retreats are important, not just for the quilting, but for the friendship.
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.
