What a Beautiful Day

I have been living and working in Maine for awhile now, as the days grow shorter we know that cold will follow. I have been wishing for some more warm days before the temps drop and the snow flies.

I got my wish Sunday! I walked the beach in Biddeford Pool Maine with two dear friends. The sun was shining, the temperatures were warm and the beach was lovely!

Words to Live By

It started in college and continues today....collecting quotes, phrases and words that have meaning and bring inspiration and focus to life. I have already created a number of batik hangings that feature these words.

Recently, I asked friends to suggest words or phrases that were meaningful to them, and got some great ideas. Over the last couple of weeks, I have been working with these ideas to create new work to add to my collection. Here is the first of many
to come.

Thank You Art Quilts Maine

This past Saturday I had the pleasure to conduct a batik workshop for members of the Art Quilts Maine quilting group in Augusta, Maine. During the two hours we had together, they quickly learned to paint with wax and dyes. The results were beautiful!
