My inner animal is a hare, not a fuzzy soft bunny but a strong and capable hare. I was born on March 21 [the first day of spring until recently] and there is no better season than the earth's rebirths that happen then. My Eye'ds of March Hare started as a piece of rust dyed cloth that I painted with textile paints. The eye is trapunto, outlined with beading and the eyelashes are free motion machine stitched.  The background is free motion machine quilted with 4 leaf clovers and accented with beading. A simple zigzag edge finishes the piece.

Since joining the QA/CPS team, Helen's stash has grown to include many mixed-media items. Basically, Helen has crossed over and sees artful possibilities in, well, everything. Having worked for years in the quilting industry, both as an editor and in marketing, she is absolutely thrilled to be part of the QA team. Like everyone on the QA/CPS staff, she wears many hats, and was recently mistaken for Pokey's personal assistant during the taping of QA TV Season 4.
