Color and Inspiration


 These butterflies couldn't be contained! Had my laptop on the road where I designed & digitized! 
Ready to return home to my studio & stitch out!


Along with visiting my sweet sister in Providence, Rhode Island, my dear hubby & I had the opportunity to travel by plane, train and car to Boston, New York and New Jersey....all the while taking in the gorgeous blooms along the streets and spectacular art in RISD artist's galleries.


and breathtaking skies

and ahhh-New York...where the yellow of taxi cabs brighten the grayest of days, the larger-than-life details are the norm and the nightlife is intoxicating!

"Book Of Mormon"!!

Guess you can take us out of the Southwest but you can't take the Tex-Mex out of us!

Tulsa Love

Made this quilt in honor of my beloved hometown.  Happy to be a Native.  Depicted on upper right is Cyrus Dallin's "Appeal to the Great Spirit", the last of 4 bronze equestrian sculptures from his "The Epic of the Indian" series.  The sculpture was cast in 1909 in Paris and won a gold medal for its exhibition in the Paris Salon.  There are 3 full sized casts of the sculpture:  One in Muncie, Indiana, One in Tulsa's Woodward Park and One in front of the Museum of Fine Arts Boston.

BTW: Current Chihuly Exhibit at MFA Boston: Fantastic!
