Quilt Artist, Writer, Entertainer
                                      

Welcome!  I'm excited!!  As a matter of fact, "EXCITEMENT" is my word of choice for 2019. It's my goal   to make every moment of every day count.  

 

I can never decide if I'm a writer first or a quilter first.  Even when I'm sewing, my quilts are full of text and tell stories and I always have a quilt (or ten or twelve...) in progress. I have to sew daily to be happy, but I'm thrilled when I can write daily as well.  I post "micro mini memoirs" on Facebook, and how fun is that!  No editing, no rejection slips, ha ha!!  I've written enough for a book and that's my next goal. 

 

I write, but I will always be an artist, a quilter, a sewer of old things into new.  I like to work with worn things I buy in thrift shops, the kind of places you go into with rubber gloves and tongs.  I have such a heart for the women who came before me who worked so hard to find a few moments to make beautiful things for their families;  a crocheted doily, a hanky with tatted edges, an embroidered dresser scarf, or a stack of quilt blocks they never got around to setting together.  These are the fragments I gather and find great joy in giving new life.  As you look at the quilts in the galleries, you will spot the vintage pieces.

I have lecture and workshop dates open - take a look at the offerings.  Enjoy your visit, and let me hear from you!
