For about a month now, during the day, I have been working in a sketchbook drawing and using paper college. I've been using these same shapes in my paintings, monoprints, quilts, and fabrics for about 15 years now. I keep...

So, I made these this week. They had been on my list since I saw the video how-to a few weeks ago. I realized there was no reason to make one at a time, especially for a family of five,...

It's hot here. Like, 96°. It was hot yesterday too, so we went to Wahclella Falls and then had a great lunch at Bridgeside looking overlooking the river and the Bridge of the Gods. It was a lovely day and...

A request was made for some Adventure Time charms so I made these (using a you tube tutorial) along with some lemon cakes in the back there. I need to display these. I haven't been up on adding charms to...

I was on a dance-skirt-making jag a bit back and also a fabric painting jag and this is one of the results. The dance skirts in the stores now are all made from lycra, and not hemmed. Super easy. I...

We have a new member of the, Penelope, who was a rescue. She is really amazing. I have never know a chihuahua before—they are so cuddly. I know they can be a bit feisty, but she is just a sweetheart....

I knitted a head warmer thingy with cables! This is very exciting. I messed up quite a bit but kept going anyway, realizing what I did wrong and not doing it again. I just turn that crazy part underneath when...

Aloha! We just got back from an amazing 8 days on Kaua'i. Pete and I went for our honeymoon 18 years ago and it's changed, but not that much. At that time, I never would have thought I'd be back...
