Charm Bracelet, Quilt Hop
Going on the Quilt Run in So. Cal a couple weeks back was a fun time. I decided to make a charm bracelet, I added several charms I had collected over the years, and the 8 from the stores I visited.. I think this is such a great idea.. Wish all runs would do this and I could go on more of them. Each charm has the name of the quilt store and it's phone number on the back.
Thank you So. Cal, for great fun.. Seriously thinking of going again next year,, and several other ladies want to go with me.. Have not been too active.. the grand kids gave us the summer colds..But we love them and enjoy when they visit.. back to the couch!
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.
