Welcome to my Blog, A little art, and a lot of Friendship
Thursday, December 1, 2011
Thanksgiving week could not have been more perfect. Ralph's son and Fiance' came up to help around the property. The weather was sunny and wonderful. We had friends and family in for the traditional turkey and trimmings.
Last winter we had an Oak Tree fall, and have needed to get it out of the rivers way for this winter. With lots of help from friends and family, we have been able to cut and pull most of it to safe ground.
There is always something that needs doing when you own some property. But we feel that is what keeps us healthy and young. Well sort of, pass the Aleve, please.
We have so much to be Thankful for.. and that is what we focus on this time of year... or any time is the right time to be Thankful. I will not make a list because each one of us knows in our hearts the blessings we want to send out to the Universe.
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.
