Spark of Science, Allure of Art

26 February 2015.  That Day, That Dress. A spark that ignited communication beyond the virtual work, into our day to day existence. The irony of duality—the prose I planned to be an essay, spilled out like silk cocoon, as my fingers danced on the keyboard.  For most of my life, I’ve stood in awe of those whose have lived through eras of drastic technological change.  My dad’s mom worked as a seamstress, her childhood had no Saturday…

Hanging on with Thread

  A friend asked about my thread racks, and a photo seemed like a good answer.  I have the large 120 spool thread racks, and I added hooks to hang on the wall. Then I cut straws to lengthen posts and topped it all off with #ikea #pictureledge for large #spools #studio #sewing #quilting #manageyourmess #makeityourown thread rack hack. Then a surprise message from Joen Wolfrom, reminded me of my Permission Slip project, so I adjusted the photo collage.…

Making fun from A to Z, seriously!

Gathered with my tribe, my comrades in art, my fabric friends, my followers (loved meeting y’all in person!) and fellow humorous humans during the International Quilt Festival, has been…. FAB-U-LOUS! Sky Blue comic book hair! More on this later… How often can you call 3-d art a quilt… well my pineapple is 3 layers stitched together with a handsewn label… Fruitful Art, Art for Fruit was part of the “what’s for dinner?” display, here I am just…

Series-ous Fun, process, lessons and confessions!

HAVE FUN – fun to work at something that…

Contrast and Commonality

In Quilt University’s Playing with Paint online class with Lyric Kinard  I’ve been having a lot of fun and learning some good painting techniques. The painting on silk reminded me of a book, that I saw once. I use my phone camera as a memory tool, so I looked in my photo album to remember…On Reveal Day 12 I wrote “But is there some contrast and commonality I ask?”.Reading Kees van Aalst’s blog for July 1st, I…

Blindspot

We all have our strengths and our “areas of improvement”. Believe it or not, personal style is my blindspot. In 1988, I mistook a comment “you look like a Charlie’s Angel” to be a compliment, so out of the house I went feeling confident in a bright blue jumpsuit. As it turns out she was trying to tell me that I looked like I just walked out of the 70’s – not a fashion style that was…

  • being brave we nurture our future, treasure the love and teach without bias. My respect to all those parents and kids of the last sixteen years who rebuild trust and hope while ensuring safety in these uneasy times--where a smile can seem rude or callous on q day of pain. I smile that all those who give aid, that they feel the love, that unending awe , that honors their sacrifice #bernesemountaindog #bmd #moon #patriotday #parents #teachers
  • Baysox Season ended -- top of the ninth on day nine of month nine on this my twenty-ninth year after school. My words spill out in cadence with Giamatti's GreenFields. This game evolved, the minor leagues fly through games in under two hours. Pace of the Game rules in action. Pack up Baysox until next spring, to restart that pattern of life, and hope. @bowiebaysox @milb @ballislife #sports #lifelessons
