FUN Play Day!

I’ve spent a lot of time working on left-brain tasks lately, so I was really looking forward to my scheduled play day, with Jo-Ann Jensen, today. My plan was to LOOSELY interpret a recent photo, as a small collage.  To help with the loose part, I looked at the photo and then put it away.  […]

What would YOU like to see me demonstrate or discuss in a […]

Awesome “Collaborations” Exhibit

Imagine grouping art quilters, doll makers, painters, and potters, and then asking them to collaborate on new art pieces.  This is exactly what happened with an exhibit called Collaborations, and it was exciting to see!  The exhibit was on display for two days, in Melbourne, FL, and was free to all.    One of the things that […]

Class Fun

Don’t you just love taking a class?  I do, and I also LOVE teaching them! I’ve shared many class photos on this blog, but I don’t always have time to take photos.   And, since I thought perhaps you readers were growing  tired of them, I didn’t intend to post photos of my recent Double Reverse Applique class.  […]
