Long Beach International Quilt Show

Yours truly doing 'open studios' at the Cloth Paper Scissors/Quilting Arts section at the Long Beach Convention Center.

I am 5 feet 9 inches tall

I was a 'model' for the project runway experience put on by Pokey Bolton and her team at the Quilt show. I was 'dressed' by my tablemates in a tablecloth, napkins etc. Pokey is petite. I am of average height.

20 July, 2008

Just back from a long weekend in Seattle to attend husb's mom's 90th birthday. Did these kitchen table drawings whenever I could.
I've been to Seattle many times, and this weekend was the most beautiful I've ever seen it. Weather was mid-70's, the trees were heavy with green, the flowers bursting in bloom---just gorgeous!

work in progress from the workshop I took

I don't know. These works in progress looked better yesterday...(acrylic on paper)


I took a workshop from the very talented Sandi D'Alessandro at the wonderful San Diego Watercolor Society. This is me, seeing the values (or lack of) in my painting.

quail siblings

This is applique on felt (they're not done yet, they'll be put on a quilt.) I saw this technique on Quilting Arts TV. [Tina Givens did it.] I used my quail painting as the pattern.

bright bird

Trying out a applique technique on felt. I think this needs some black stitching, as the outline. Let's call it a work in progress too.

in progress

Hmm. The idea is to do a series of these house shapes....This one has collage and fabric so far. It's looking pretty busy, so it's still a work in progress!

matilija pods from my walk today

I'm working on a quilt series, inspired by things I see or find on my weekly walks at Blue Sky Reserve. Here's drawing #2 for that series.
