  • The wonders

    I am back! While in Phoenix we stayed at a friends house. Upon entering her front door my guy noticed this mother and baby and it is a good thing I snapped a picture because the next day that li'l bird was fledged. Other great animals we saw? Bats flying over the pool while we took a wee skinny dip...

  • Long Beach, Baby!

    Arrow didn't want me to go to Long Beach, so he solved the problem by tucking himself into my luggage. Pretty lil guy. But went I did!

  • Busy Bee

    I have completed the forth I2Q Vid Prompt: Soy Wax!!! I dyed and surface designed my peasant blouse. And, well. I don't like my results. I like the shirt better in white. That is the bummer about blogging, you have reference of before and after. My dyes aren't up to full strength, they are a...

    First off, a drawing of the Brooklyn Bridge from the Promenade . David and I walked through Brooklyn Heights and enjoyed watching small sailboats compete with water taxis and barges. There were trains, planes, boats, helicopters and automobiles, bicycles and I am sure I am missing something. The page...

  • How about this episode?

    I will show you mine, if... well you know that deal. This is my sewing studio. It is a 6.5 foot by 9 foot room, just off our bedroom. If we were normal people, this room would be a walk in closet for clothing. But we are not normal. We are practical and pragmatic- and we honor or needs not our belongings...

    I returned home from San Diego after teaching a great group of gals and found this! In my mailbox! Mailed. With postage applied to the back of the postcard and a hand written note from Jakquil (the woman who won my Pretty Purse give away). It seems to have embellished fabrics, a bit of Angelina, and...

    I am working on this: This is a piece that I began as a project for my book, but that I it messed up and put it aside. Although I have been attending some knit groups, I have not felt inspired to knit. Instead, I bring sewing projects. I embroider, bead and enjoy the company of my fellows. This piece...

The teacher was one of my favorites when I went to school there, Zsu Zsi Dalquist. Or at least I hope that is how you spell it. Zsu Zsi would give us points for entering class with...
