meadow views

Even though it doesn't look like the picture on the bottom, the art quilt was distilled from that view, just in a different season!

With hand dyed fabric (I'm really loving this process, and have lots of hand dyed silk stuff to show you)!

Not a whole lot of embellishment , an excercise in restraint.
The back garden in high summer.

the terracotta warriors are in DC

Since a trip to Xi'an is not in the forcast, my son and I took advantage of an exhibit in Washington DC's National Geographic Museum happening through March 31st.

It was awesome! Even for a 15 year old! This is a 'reading' exhibit, and it helps to do a little homework before you go..

My son and I!

March FCCA show

A great start to the show at Fredericksburg Center for the Creative Arts..
My fiber work with the wonderful Audrey Bruno's photography. We did not know each other, nor pick each other to show together, amazingly enough the show went together like peas and carrots.

We both had good sales, and there are still pieces available, so if you are interested, let me know!! Thanks to everyone who came out to support the F'burg local art scene. It was a very lovely night. The show hangs all of March.
