Playing Around

That’s definitely a picture of playing around. I decided one day to just pick up bits of color and embroider them down to a piece of Vilene – which is this stabilizing sort of stuff that disintegrates in water. Then I did something typical for me – I used a steam iron on it. Not,…

Not Good

Update! I don’t know why I keep forgetting Union Street Towing – that phone number is going on my refrigerator from now on out! They had replaced my battery early this winter and now my favorite repair guy came and put the emergency spare on the rear and the rear tire on the front. I…

Experiments

I feel like a kid with a new chemistry set – although my parents never bought me one of those, I had friends who let me play with theirs. I must say I wasn’t thrilled with it ……… for me, experiments are only good if they produce color. Lots and lots of color ………. I…

Gee Golly

I’m sitting here this afternoon, minding my own business, and I get an email. Wow, huh? Well this one was a WOW! In January I sent a sample of some of my work to Uppercase Magazine. This magazine is hard to classify although I have seen it described as a graphic arts publication. It is…

Shopping Again

I love all sorts of fabric. This is Swavelle/Mill Creek Indoor/Outdoor Gregoire Prima. I’m not sure where the Gregoire Prima means, but I just loved the print. I’ve been staring at this for a while thinking it would make great curtains, although it is medium weight and intended for pillows, upholstery, things like that. Then I…

Acceptance

It is a fact of this life that “things” happen. Things that we do not want to happen, things we fear, things we run from and yes, things we love. I have spent a predominant part of my life not accepting what is but fighting against it. I was always rushing to the future, hoping…

Playing with Value

It’s been years since I have gone into a quilt shop and looked at fabric, in real life. I bought fabric on-line, if I bought fabric for quilts. I have been knitting and sewing clothing for the last few years. I only decided to quilt again in 2015 and then I dyed my own fabrics….

Recognizable

Years ago, way back in the 90s, I was making art quilts for show. I had a lot of inspiration, imagination and I had an amazing source of quilt fabrics from which to choose. I even traveled from St. Clair Shores to Ann Arbor at least every other month to glean fabrics from my absolute…

Believable

Wanderlust is always upon me. For years I wanted to move after about 8 years of living in one place – except for some places I lived when I wanted to move within 6 months of living there, like Canada. Oddly enough, now that I am in this house, this 102 year old house, I…

Another New Project …..

I don’t need to start something new. I need to finish at least one of the 5 projects already on my needles. But see, this yarn is sitting here and it’s pretty and I want to knit with it. So I am. So there. This is Lark by Quince and Co. in Canvas. When I…

Planets in Alignment ………

Back in the day when I was a working psychic, I also “did” astrology. I don’t know how else to say that, except that I also provided the service of an astrological reading if the client requested it. I had a doctor who was a nice man and, for some reason, felt that astrological readings…

March 2

I have to remind myself of this. Every day brings a new phony outrage from the left. And now it seems our highly unsuccessful former president has joined up with his highly unsuccessful cronies to “bring down” the Trump presidency. I guess they hope to get him impeached. Since he won’t be screwing an intern…
