Birthday recap 2014

Ya know I manipulate time so that I get more than just 1 day for a birthday.  Feel free to do the same yourself.  My birthday month starts September 15 and ends on November 15 – yep, bonus – cause birthday month is 2 months long!So this year during birthday month (lots of circular stuff): Both of my hometown teams still played baseball into October Bloodmoon Lunar Eclipse New Handrail by Steve Baker of Whollyterra “Guitar” quilt…

Flamingos, Freedom & Fun

With great freedom comes great sacrifice.    Thanks to all our Veterans and their families.  Hats off to you! On the topic of hats… got a fun new “old” hat during my adventures at the International Quilt Festival in Houston. So great to see my friends at Festival, like Judy Gula from Artistic Artifacts in Alexandria, Virginia (basically my neighbor in the DC metro area!) Flamingos, bet you are wondering why this is about Flamingos.  Ya know…

Tempus Machinus

Don’t you want a Time Machine?  Got one, but it’s in a traveling exhibit.  Isn’t that perfect? A time machine that is traveling?   Sworn to secrecy until the exhibit first opened (Oct 2013)… well um can I get that time machine so I can post this in Nov 2013 instead of 2014… Serendipitously,  now I can share that Tempus Machinus and its friends in the Studio Art Quilt Associates (SAQA)’s Text Message exhibit will be hanging in…

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…

Bridges

Never heard of “Wine and Canvas” til my sister told me of a groupon, she and her friends needed to use. Wonder if we can start the phrase “the groupon made me do it” and could groupon replace the devil as an excuse maker? What a fun way to spend the evening! As we got to our table, the canvas, brushes, palette with paint were there and calling to me. But I resisted their temptation to play…

Try-angle Trees and Cutting Tool Clouds

Can you see I’ve been having fun? Imagine yourself skiing thru the fall colored trees and looking up to see the clouds forming shapes?  Perhaps you should keep your eyes on the ski slope while skiing!Went to the Sewing  Quilting Expo at the Dulles Expo Center this weekend.   I was so fortunate to be a passenger and I wanted to get my “stitching on”.  So at 8:30am Saturday realized I needed some handwork to take.  Found the…

Seasons of Sewing

cool mornings, warm days… makes me wonder which way to go! I’ve got 2 traditional quilts that need binding and I’m looking forward to some handsewing time under a warm quilt.As the earth revolves around the sun, while rotating, I think of my evolution as an sewing artist too… Birthday month introspection!Throughout my school days, I doodled echo lines around words.Later, I sewed garments, curtains, reupholstered furniture, machine embroidery… then I fell in the rabbit hole of…

  • 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
