Welcome to my Blog, A little art, and a lot of Friendship
Wednesday, March 3, 2010
Ok, So I get a bit distracted, but I loved this hat pattern! My friend was knitting it in the evening while at Quilt Retreat. So went to the local knit store and asked for help on pattern reading.. Last time I really knitted anything besides scarves was in High School, and we will not go into how long ago that was. I met the greatest group of ladies, just like in the little knit book series, fun and friendly.. Missed their pot luck yesterday.. ah well, less on the hips.
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.
