Yarns, Knits and Texture
Wow, Picasa and Blogger are speaking again, and so am I with enthusiasm. Went to the Best of the Valley Quilt Show, and besides the wonderful quilts, which I will address later.
There were some beautiful boxes of yarns for sale. Love the texture and the color. Looks so cuddly.
I am on my way out and just on the off chance that my photos on Blogger were working again.. I stopped by the computer. Why is there such a draw to recheck messages every time I pass...
Thankfully, the studio and the computer are at opposite ends of the house. Off to see Kathleen Mattox do a demonstration of her art for Yos. Western Artists and a Pot luck meeting.. hubby is down trying to clear some of the branches after the rain storm that took out oak trees all over the mountains.
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.
