I joined the Decorative Artists of SW Florida in Cape Coral back in 2k2 - before I knew what I wanted to be when I grew up...and this was one of the projects we did in a workshop. The original painting was by Peter Lord Hunt and we each painted our version on canvas...except me...who painted it on my hoosier door.

My first fabric beach scene art postcard - 2k6 I think it was.
Plain and simple...my mailbox in Cape Coral, FL



'I'm A Little Tea Pot" brooch

A little Christmas Tree pin I made way back when.




the middle spread out of my "Remember, Be Here Now" fabric book - blogged about here.

A really fun denim bag named, "Surprise Inside". If you ask...I'll tell.

This is the back side.

One of my very first art quilts - done mostly while at the hospital where my mom lived for the five weeks before she died. I titled it, "Mom's Universe".

The middle page in my "China Flight" altered book. I've blogged about it here.
More pictures of "China Flight" follow...





This was a mess in my eyes but my sister-in-law loved it and was happy to take it home. :)

My sister, Sandy, a WONderful quilter, came to visit shortly before my grandson, Cameron, was born and helped me figure out how to put the above quilt together for him.

I began this quilt before my daughter, Hillary, was a twinkle in her daddy's eye...and finished it for her 25th Christmas.

Each corner of each block was embroidered with something pertinent to her age throughout the years I worked on it.

I'm not very patient with traditional quilting but managed to finish this, my third one, for my son, Bear.

and here's the Bear holding it up.

I made a scarf for my daughter with Sulky and lots of thread snippets.

Puddy Tat Purse
inspired by Traci Bautista

Some of my very first surface designed fabric made into my very first art journal.

gifted to my son-in-law, Pedro's, mom.




Crazy quilted the wall in my play room. :)
At one point, I was having a blast making "Freaky Faces" out of palm fronds. This one, Wild Thang, was given to my boss.
Took a workshop to learn how to do the Santa faces and then came home and did enough to bring everybody in Virginia a bit of Florida for Christmas that year. :)

This was my first journal quilt made for my daughter who lived in Germany at the time. Named "Where Dreams Come True".
We were given a challenge, at my Decorative Artists group, to paint our aprons with a "Tutti Frutti" theme. I loved the way mine turned out, but no one else looked twice. Oh well.





This is the quilt I made for my granddaughter, Sophia.

    1. Thank you my Jennibellie!!! It is SO good to hear from you!!! I now own an Apple and Safari doesn't allow me to open about 90% of the videos that I attempt to open. I'm not really too keen on adding Chrome or Firefox and will take it to the Apple Store when we go to the States next month to see if they can fix it. Then, I will spend lots of time catching up on all your videos!!! I do read the blog most times, but I'm terrible about leaving comments. Too many projects to work on. I miss you though and again...just as happy as pie to hear from you.

      love, peace and all things groovy...

    It will take me a year, at least, to go thru your incredible blog.
    So many wonderful ideas, and your very generous links are so thought provoking. Thanks for taking the time to do this
