Journaling is happening Sunday, Feb 5 2012 

I know I’m not posting them all. I guess I haven’t been that thrilled with all of them, but here’s one that I thought was interesting. I used Beryl Taylor’s technique to create paper fabric and then hand stitched the circles and edges.

OK. Two Weeks at a Time Saturday, Oct 22 2011 

Didn’t get around to posting — but did do — my art a week, so today you get two for the price of one post.

In flight Saturday, Sep 17 2011 

I know. I know. I have a thing for birds. And reusing. So here is a piece that starts with a scrap from a quilt I’m making. I added another patch, stamped on a bird, added a little stitching, some beads, a thin line of bronze paint and then attached the piece to a painted canvas, and here is flight into fuchsia.

Here’s the next in my series of small crazy quilts. I love the screaming face–got it from

Feeling blue again Sunday, Apr 3 2011 

I’m starting a crazy patch series themed with color/emotion. The first of the series is from my blue period. I always love the blue family; I don’t know why it’s linked with depression. 🙂
