Here is my latest piece commissioned by a lovely woman out of all silk fabric samples from her husbands company. With the Oriental feel it fits perfectly in her beautiful home. I hope she has many years of enjoyment from the serene landscape.
Hi all. Just found out there is still room on our cruise for more YOU! I know it’s not far but if you need some time for relaxation and creation COME ALONG!!! www.worldofquiltstravel.com . March 10-20. Southern Caribbean on Norwegian Cruise Lines “Norwegian Sun” to southern Caribbean. 3 teachers; 9 classes; 5 islands…..and a WHOLE-LOTTA-FUN!
Hi all, Having a great 2013 so far even though I’ve had to shovel 300 percent over last year! Working on a commission in silk and ramping up for ‘The Cruise’!! WooHoo! Also developing new workshops, one from Sumac Sparks (previously posted).
For the third year we are again ‘Bert’s B’s’ (In honor of my mom who is a survivor) in the Methuen MA Relay for Life for the American Cancer Society and starting my fundraising with these cotton, hand knit dish cloths. Some are colors of ‘Cancer Ribbons’, some are a patchwork of yarn scraps etc. They are $3.50 each, including shipping. Drop me an e-mail to order a few!
Here I am, jumping into a new project, hope I do it justice. I have chosen to be one of the new SAQA (Studio Art Quilters Association) regional reps for NH, VT, and ME. I know I’ll need to get better acquainted with all things tech (ouch) as the previous rep did the regional newsletters AND created her art! Maybe I’ll give up sleeping. I hope to begin in January with some sort of ‘What’s new and Happening!” blurb. Baby steps…. Please feel free send news items etc. and to ooch me along if I lag behind.
Here is my newest and I think current favorite piece. It was inspired by a photograph I too in Acadia National Park in ME in October of 2004. The gorgeous colors of the Sumac grabbed me and I even pushed the saturation just a bit for drama! We all need more drama, right? I wanted to make this as close to a photographic ‘copy’ as I could and you can see from my previous post that each piece of fabric was chosen and altered to create that natural effect. How’d I do?
