Last week I had my Trick or Treat Trio in Tyvek. During the class I made three smaller quilties. Here is number 1: Frankie. Mother will be finishing up the embellishing and edging, then I will re post the finished projects. I hope to get permission this week to show Judi’s quilt from class. She […]

Sis and the brood got to traipse through the park today. She was lucky enough to snap this photo of the resident deer. So all winter long we have received next to nothing by way of snow in the greater Denver, CO area. Thankfully we are making up for it in April. Update on this […]

Emerging from winter to welcome the promise of spring. The warmth of the sun melting snow into our parched earth. Peeps of green tomorrow.

or an artist’s statement on land management? I pass this sad lonely creature everyday on the way to the studio. I actually had a dream that a Cristo-type artist used these tigers on a large installation. There were hundreds of them on metal fence posts spanning nearly a half mile. A visual imprint on my […]

Three new Obie creatures waiting to go out into the beautiful wide world to experience life. Caesar is the one on the upper left (name given by SwirlyGirl, thank you). But the other two are awaiting names and adventures. Wouldn’t it cool if they looked like this: I’m just saying…

Recently, Sis has been teased about her teeth. Someone must be jealous. They are her finest feature. I overheard her telling Bro about the teasing and a nightmare she had as a result. Apparently, she dreamed of mass destruction. It was a dream wasn’t it?

Baddy Betty came to us after high winds in Colorado. Either she has lost her way or decided dreary caves were not her cup of tea. Velvet suits her.

Since I’ve been neglectful of my embellishment collage cards, and only playing with the siblings, I’m consolidating: enlisting the big brother of Hobie Obie (he has no name yet, any suggestions?) to help me announce a February sale. For every collage card purchased from the On-line store, I will include a second collage free. The […]

Sis and Bro don’t watch television, though they are rooting for the Cardinals. So as all children do, they went to play in the local construction zone. Bro was apprehensive about going inside. Sis was eager to get out, so she put those teeth to good use, and chewed her way out.

Sis has been seeking the answers to what the new year holds for us. What those answers are, I do not know; she is not telling me. She’s keeping it a surprise.

Uncle Crusty’s legs are knobby and boney. Walk quickly down those creaky wooden stairs, before he loses his balance and topples right on to you. Love all things creepy and crawly. Love scary and spooky. Love skulls and skeletons: they’re elegant, silly, and a great beginning point for creativity. Mixed Media Monday is hosting the […]

We had a lovely play date, Mia, Terry and I, at our favorite local fabric store, Great American Quilt Factory. Cruising the store before the playing upstairs began, I noticed this cute little creature. He was sly, following us around, but Mia pointed out he was lonely, and suggested he join us. Click on the […]

Last Friday I asked readers to see the beauty that is around, right in front, or hidden. This gorgeous creature was waiting for me on my front step one evening. Though his head is slightly out of focus, I was thrilled to get this shot with my regular Kodak digital camera. What did you discover?

Although they were not behaved enough to be able to go. The sock kids wanted to wish everyone a great time at the International Quilt Festival in Chicago. Sloan

Do you kick your socks off in the middle of the night? Do they lay stranded on the floor until wash-day? Do you know what they are doing while you sleep? They are role playing and having a blast. If you wish to end their free reign in the bedroom, keep them in the hamper. […]
