New Work: Dandelion

Real life photograph

Art quilt

I took the photograph of the dandelion last summer to be used as a source of future inspiration. So, here is the result. Let me know what you think. You can click on the quilt for a closer look...there are beads all over the light green fabric. Thanks to Vivian (http://www.studiothreads.blogspot.com/) for the perfect color of thread used in machine quilting.

More Signs of the Season

I recently spent a few days in Holmes County, Ohio...home to a large population of Amish folk. I was struck by the beauty and coloration of all the produce at a market there...thus the pictures for art inspiration. Hmmm, not to mention cooking inspiration. I'm thinking pumpkin and apple pies....cider.....ok, turkey, mashed potatoes and stuffing too.
