Peace, love and happiness in the heart of bourbon country

Last week I had the privilege to teach at Ephemera Paducah, and what a great time I had at this wonderful art and mixed-media supply store, workshop space and retreat facility. Besides being the home of the National Quilt Museum, Paducah also has a thriving arts community which could be one of the leading factors […]


Where did July go?

It just burned right by, and the 17 fires blazing across the state are proof it was the hottest July on record in Northern California. The oppressive gray skies have been ashy for weeks. Having a government that does not acknowledge climate change is maddening. On a more positive note, the opening of our fiber […]


What a great way to start 2018: part 1

It was so great starting my teaching year at Craft Napa. Hands down, it has to be my favorite venue to teach at. Napa is only an hour away from Sacramento, so it was easy for me, my daughter Indigo, and friend and fellow teacher Melanie Testa to pack up the car and head over to […]


Blessings in the wind, making mixed-media prayer flags in Fresno

This was the first time I’ve ever taught for a guild twice in the same year! How cool is that? Debbie Girt (on bottom left of photo) took my Painting Imagery with Textile Paints workshop in February when I was there last and brought her finished Seahorses wall hanging to show and tell. Didn’t it […]


SLO Creating

Do you feel like life is moving too fast? I know I do. I propose we all do some slow-creating, kind of like pro-creating, or giving birth to artful things on a slow, but regular, basis. A true labor love. A way of being. This weekend, I was able to do some   SLO-creating in San Luis […]


Making prayer flags at Craft Napa

This has been a very hard week with trumps assault on our civil liberties. It has been stressful, anger inducing, frustrating, painful, and scary. I feel traumatized, as each day the news got worse and worse. But as I write this post I feel renewed. My heart and spirit is lifted with each photo that I edit. […]


Blessing in the wind: making prayer flags at quilt festival

I’ve been really looking forward to sharing the photos from the Prayer Flags class with you, not only because it is such an optimal time to make them with all the turmoil over the election among other things, but because the flags my students made came out amazing!!!   We began by creating colored fabric using acrylic […]


The long and winding road

I’m long over due in sharing about my time at Quilt Festival in Houston, but I’ve been having a hard time writing about something that was so fun and happy when I feel like I’ve been hit with a ton of bricks. I’ve run through dozens of first paragraphs in my head over the last week trying […]


My Fabulous trip to Florida: Part one

As I sit here contemplating what I might have forgotten to pack for my trip to Omaha, I reflect on what a wonderful time I had in Florida and because I have so many photos I want to share, I’m going to break this blog post up into two parts. The first post will cover […]
