Ouch! and the Arts Festival from Fleur de Lis Quilts and Accessories

A front porch with the funniest table and chairs.
Did I tell you about the foot accident? Ah yes, I did here.  In a nutshell: Milly accidentally pushed a hitch out of the truck. Onto my foot. Right on the bone that goes to the big toe. A metatarsal, I'm told. I find out, for sure, whether it's broken on Wednesday.


Today  I'll see a doctor to find out why this shoulder hurts so much. The last time I saw him, he gave me a shot right in the joint. Ouch! It has not helped. I'd ...

Going Against the Grind with Tula Pink’s New Collection from The Cutting Table Quilt Blog - A Blog for Quilters by Quilters

Have you ever heard the saying, “Don’t throw a monkey wrench into the machine.” The phrase is about industrial-sabotage, meaning to prevent a process from going smoothly by deliberately trying to ruin it. Horrible, right?

Well, not always! Sometimes, the unknown path is the best path and who better to throw that monkey wrench into your life than Tula Pink, the queen of quirky, against-the-grind, free-spirited fabric design!

Set your quilt planners, color coordinators, and simple prints aside. Tula Pink’s latest collection, Monkey Wrench, will be the perfect storm you didn’t know you needed! Check it out ...

How To Make Pottery At Home from Pippa Patchwork

One of the ways to relieve stress is to do some art. It helps you to do something with your hands and also keep your mind off things by concentrating on something else. The problem at times is getting started. It seems intimidating and quite hard. But it is really not. You do not have to be an expert to do art. It will be a great hobby and as said before, it is a good stress reliever. So if you are just starting, do not pressure about it but instead, enjoy the process of it. Besides, it is not ...

Week Two from Heart Desire Creations

On Saturday I came home from a sew-in and on Sunday left with Hubby for Richmond, Virginia for some sightseeing.  The city is so rich with history. We walked many, many miles each day and found ourselves constantly looking up at the amazing architecture.  There are also many phenomenal historical statues. Below left is the city hall and the third is the state capital.

How To Start Oil Painting For Beginners from Pippa Patchwork

Some people would want to have a hand and try to make art. It is something that can make your mind at ease and is a very good stress reliever. The problem with it is that it is quite intimidating. When you look at other’s creations, it is inspiring but at the same time frightening to get par with them. As a beginner, you should not think that way. Everyone had a start even those artists. 

One of the forms of art that people would like to try is painting. There are many types of it but the most ...

Framed! from Becca's Crazy Projects

Since I picked up such great art at the Crafty D.C. Festival I had to buy some frames so I could display that art. I picked up this fabulous print from Jen of Zooguu. All the frames on Amazon had white mats so I had to pick up a black on locally.
I had never attached a print to a mat before, so I did a little research on YouTube and found a great video that really had way more content than I needed. It did give me some tips to get me started, though.
I'm really pleased ...

Quilting Arts & A Rooster from Where Art & Life Meet

A couple years ago I was featured in Quilting Arts Magazine – the Year of the Rooster!   The piece I submitted, entitled Regal Rooster, was made of wool, cotton and silk velvet (that I dyed myself) using a variety of threads, but predominantly Eleganza Perle Cotton from Sue Spargo.  She has the most luscious… Continue reading Quilting Arts & A Rooster

The Undermining of “Craft” from Where Art & Life Meet

“Crafts” have occupied a large part of my life. I was fifteen years old when I knitted my first sweater.  My mother taught me to knit when I was so young my fingers had trouble wrapping the yarn around them.  I didn’t realize it then, but being left-handed certainly must have made it more difficult… Continue reading The Undermining of “Craft”

NEW YEAR, NEW START from Show + Tell


Who doesn't love a fresh start?

January 1st is really just a continuation in a long stream of days, but who doesn't love a fresh start? A new race to run (not from personal experience, I just thought it sounded good), new colors to explore, spend more time where I feel most alive, experiment more, love more, move closer to what God created me to do and embrace the wonderful gift of joy.


Got to hand deliver my last art installation of 2016 in Indianapolis for my amazing, creative Jennifer Storey. Now I can't wait to get ...

YOU KNOW WHAT THEY SAY? from Show + Tell

Back to the drawing board? Nope, this one is finished. It's raining cats and dogs? You're getting closerEvery cloud has a silver lining? Close, but no cigar. When it rains it pours? Winner Winner.....

You Know What They Say? 16 x16 on wood cradle board


I apologize for being a little punchy. I seem to create quite a few rainy paintings, which is ironic, since rain is so rare in San Diego. I thoroughly enjoyed the layer upon layer of raining color until I could see beyond the paint itself.
