Making things by hand is what I love to do. Baskets, quilts, fabric, paper, and plenty of other things keep me going. These days I pull from my own treasure trove, enjoy what I find while salvaging & thrifting, and as always art stores give me a thrill.
A Mary Oliver poem asks ‘what will you do with your one wild and precious life’?
Fabric and mixed media postcards are lots of fun. Sometimes I make them singly, sometimes I make a bigger piece and cut it up. I began doing the fabric cards for the quilt guild I belong to, East Bay Heritage Quilters. At only $5, they are a popular fundraising item at all the events!
Collage journals are completely open to whatever you want to do, no limits! It’s fun, challenging, serious, silly, satisfying, mysterious, experimental, emotional, surprising, and often quite beautiful.
If you’d like a selection of ephemera from my stash just send your name & address and then keep an eye on the mailbox:))
As far as I am concerned fabric is one of the best things ever invented. It’s been a lifetime passion and these days I find that improvisation particularly suits my personality and sewing abilities. Although I admire it, precision sewing isn’t for me!
