Back Porch Quilt Store & Jane
Shopping is such great fun, especially in a quilt store named Back Porch.. My friend Jane and her hubby Sam were on their way to PIQF and I caught her looking through pink fabric.. Great color for a new baby quilt.. Go Wild Jane..
Jane and I are planning a trip to Paducah... I have never been and am looking forward to the opportunity to see the town and all they do for quilters, or is that the other way around... Heard it is wonderful. It is on the calendar for next year..
Year, after that I would like to go to Houston..Scary planning so far out.. it will be here before we know it..
Yard and Studio are on the list for today.. I bought some wonderful Kaffe fabrics at Back Porch, they have such a endless variety and ideas are running though my head.
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.
