Our Lady of Guadalupe. My process for my art is this ……. I don’t really have one. I find unusual, quirky fabrics that appeal to me. Then I lay them out in my studio and look at them for awhile. (a year) Then one day they speak to me. They say something like this …… […]

  I love to doodle. I love the word doodle. I love to say the word doodle. Doodle. When I doodle on paper (which is constantly) this is what it looks like. Daydreaming. Heart shapes and swirls. I doodle in my studio when I don’t have a big project going or when I need a […]

I made this Paint Horse Pillow pillow last winter and blogged about it.  One of the things I adore about blogging is the people I have met. The friends I’ve made. My friend Suzanne of Fairchild Farmgirl  is an artist, mom to 8, wife to Big D, and surrogate mother to untold number of cattle, ducks, […]

Pow Wow  One word ….. WOW “Artist Date “….. “Explore something festive that interests you …. “ “Replenish our inner well of images and inspiration…” “Fire up the imagination”…  Julia Cameron  “Immerse yourself in color”….. “Listen to the drums ….” “Eat some Indian Tacos”….. “Buy a lot of stuff for your little friend”  …. Me. […]

I have a treasure chest in a Justin Boot Box. Last year I bought a whole box full of vintage quilt blocks for about $40. This is only about 1/10th of what’s in there. I would never tackle a project like these blocks even with modern fabrics.  It’s much too tedious for me. But there […]

 I’m back in the studio and does it ever feel good! I took an unintended hiatus because of marvelous Spring weather, lots of riding, playing with dogs and fish and being T.H.’s hired man.  The heat has finally driven me (willingly) up to my studio for my summer schedule. This was a little “warm-up”  project.  The […]

   I posted about this quilt a few months ago.  At the time I thought it was the ugliest quilt ever made. As it turns out, it is the most favorite one I’ve ever made. I went on an Artist’s Retreat to Santa Fe in November, having just finished the top. I showed the blog […]

   I have met so many wonderful, creative people through blogging.  One of them is Crystal Harris Donnelly.  She is an artist who expresses herself through the love of dogs and horses. Today I give you this guest post by my friend, Crystal. I commissioned her to paint a portrait of my faithful companion, Tip. […]

  I picked up this fabric somewhere.  I have so much in my stash now that I forget. I’m pretty sure that I bought it at a little boutique fabric store in Salt Lake City.  A few fat quarters and some remnants. At first I thought I would cut up some random pieces and mix […]

I have been practicing with my new Free Motion Quilting Foot. I take one fat quarter ( 18″X22″) and make a quilt sandwich and just go for it.  I was just messing around but when I filled up the whole square, I thought ” This is almost the size of a pillow” Why not make […]
