about the artist

My surprise for the birthday boy was a success. He had a great time being feted by his friends. Thankfully, one of them took photos.

In other good news, I sold one of my large aspen quilts. This one is High Desert Aspens. It has a painted silk background. I shipped it off to Oregon’s high desert which seems appropriate.

Next on my agenda is to start making! I have ideas in my head and some sketches. It is time to pull out some fabric and get busy.

Surprise Package

January 21st, 2020

Yesterday, I got an email from UPS saying I was getting a delivery today that was sent next day air from LA. I couldn’t imagine what it could be because I had no pending delivery. It was a beautiful bouquet of flowers from the SAQA board, thanking me for my two years as the Oregon Rep. I love getting flowers and I don’t get them that often. So, that was something I did during the time I was not blogging! I really enjoyed being a part of the dynamic SAQA Oregon team.

Today, I made these delicious raspberry ricotta wholewheat scones so that Mr. C will have something special for his 80th birthday breakfast. I also bought a big carrot cake and birthday candles (80) and dropped them off at Trinity Cathedral. He will be there tomorrow doing his weekly volunteer work and I thought it would be great for them to celebrate his birthday. I can’t be there because I won’t have the car and I have a SAQA conference call at 11 am. Someone has offered to take photos for me.

I’m Back!

It has been a while since I have blogged. I am going to try to post a couple of times a week, maybe more. Last year, I took part in a SAQA Facebook activity called 100 days of creativity. Every day, I did some embroidery on a 5 inch square of indigo. These are the 100 squares. I hope to figure out how I want to connect them to make one large quilt. Stay tuned to see how that happens.
