Yoyo's Gather in March
March is a beautiful month in the mountains, wild flowers are starting, and we had a rainless day for the monthly gathering of YoYo's Myra brought a quilt that has been pieced together at her house, love the colors. It is a big Queen Size.
Nancy and Kathy are showing off that they have finished their Challenge Pieces, Sounds of the Sierra's . They both were thinking birds.. I need to get busy with mine.. have to turn them in soon, or at least the paper work.
Each Circle is putting together a basket to be raffled off. Ours is a garden basket, a few of the goodies are a cuddle quilt, garden tools,
a hat to match the quilt, a quilted journal, and knitted squirrel... the kind that does not dig holes! And lots of surprises.. Come to the Mountains May 14th & 15th... going to be fun!
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.
