More necklaces and matching earrings
I am having fun and on a roll. Funky necklaces and earrings.. Found parts, and like a fabric stash, I have a stash of beads, and parts... Where to go first.. Glad that I have two areas of my studio... but lately they have all gotten mixed up.. Have one watercolor painting, unfinished in the center of the room, and one pastel drawing. A fun quilt that I want to frame, and when I am tired, am working on my Hexagon piece at night for hand stitching..
Went over to a friend's house last week to watch Those Pretty Bones,, I think that was the name. I took some hand work over with me.. My friend said, Don't you ever sit still and do just one thing at a time... Had to think about that for a moment.. Guess not... Every minute is fun filled..
By they way, have mixed feelings about the film.. Our group reads the book first and then sees the film at someone's house.. I borrowed the book for Sept.. Water for Elephants... I buzzed through that book.. Found it interesting, sad, and thought provoking.. bottom line, everyone has a story to tell... got me thinking of my past also...
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.
