Hello world!

Crow and Moon

Crow and Moon

I make quilts, collages, boxes, dolls, and my husband would say (I agree), lots of messes.

I teach fiber arts (mostly to kids) and have one boy in middle school, one in high school.

House motifs show up in many of my quilts, as do poppies, hearts and elephants.    I’m not sure how I became a quilter because I am not a patient person, nor do I sew particularly well.

My work space is cluttered beyond belief, to the point of distraction even for me, sometimes.  I will never have one of “those studios” where the glossy neatness is lovely and precise.

Oh yeah, and I love doorways.

Lastly, by way of introduction, I garden a few months a year.  It is shocking to me how many more pictures I have of the shrubs I have planted than of my boys!

    Hi Dee,
    This is awesome. I loved seeing the new works on paper. All I will say is that there is an “untruth” on this blog, the allegation that you have poor sewing skills. Hogwash. Can’t wait to blog with you more.
