Carol

I made this small fiber art piece of my friend Carol for her birthday.

Her daughter Loretta sent me this picture of Carol taken when she was 18 years old.

I scanned it into the computer and added a filter, and then printed it onto fabric.

 Carol was pleasantly surprised with her small gift.

My sister June from Virginia has been visiting for a week now. She and I visited a local watercolor artist Francis Hairston and enjoyed her paintings.

Summer 2017

Haiti Benefit Auction in Ohio

Parking at the auction.

MCC Connection in Kidron, OH

I found the loom fascinating and wished someone would have been there to weave.

It is tedious work tracing around a bow tie template onto small rectangles, cutting them out, ...

... and fusing them to a navy background.

I drove Quinten to the field to check the moisture of corn.

Picking a few cobs.

Ashton fashioned a grain auger from Legos to unload corn.

I enjoyed a visit to Old Man River Quiltfest in Vicksburg, MS with my friend Ebba ...

... and Judy.

I had a fun day with some of the grands during the 2017 Eclipse.

The colander worked well for seeing the eclipse.

Ashton gets a view of the eclipse.

A pleasant evening at Joels & Quintens.

In the corn patch.

Shelling Corn and Painting with The Art Sherpa

The men have been shelling corn.

Kirby, Stacy, and Ashton came for a sleep over.

This started out to be a fun happy project with TheArtSherpa.

... but soon the boys were ready to do something different.

Maybe boxcars would be more fun.

I coaxed them to finish their art projects...

... and I'm right proud of them.

Flying to Rapid Response Meeting

Paul and I recently flew with Joel and Sheila ...


... to Indiana / Kentucky for a Rapid Response Meeting.

Supper at Hinkle Hamburgers in Madison, IN.

The view from our balcony the next morning.

At 3 in the morning we were evacuated from the building. We still don't know why!


I worked on my hexies on our way home.

Revisiting "Go Mississippi"

Back in 2014 I made this piece of fiber art to represent Mississippi, the Magnolia State. The pine trees tell of Mississippi's forestry and the blue speaks of the water at the coast in the Gulf of Mexico.

I took a picture of my piece and played with it in Dreamscope and PicsArt to try some of their filters.

Go Mississippi in ink printed on watercolor paper.

Go Mississippi II in ink printed on water color paper.

What fun I had making my trial and error pieces.
