Art Quilting Studio Magazine
Art Quilting Studio, love this magazine, so many wonderful ideas.. Usually, I go right to the articles and devour each one.. and then the magazine goes back into the stack.. This time I picked it up again while straightening out my coffee table for company. Ok, so I did not get to all the cleaning that day.. but it was men, so they did not notice.
On the inside of the front cover, I lingered on C & T publishing's descriptions of TAP, Lutradur and the books that go with the products.. I participate in the C & T Creative Art Troop, which is great fun.
As I read further, I noticed my name under a post card I had sent in and forgotten about.
I made it with Lutradur, Yarns, variegated threads, beads and Paint. I had been working on "sunsets" for another project and making Postcards for Postmark'd art exchange which is just one more of my passions. Wow, my piece is right next to Lesley Riley's.. how exciting!
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.
