About Me
I'm a decorative artist/designer (painter), have published 10 Decorative Painting Books. I will have 2 more this year, one is a Christmas Ornament book, and the other will be the 7th in the Tuttles Touches series. Many of my designs have quilt themes and details. Connecting Threads' Snow Days fabric line was my design, and Jubilee Garden is the second! I also designed a wall hanging using Jubilee Garden - called Bloomin' Patches.
I was a quilter long before I picked up a paintbrush. I do pattern testing as well as sew samples for Connecting Threads.

Merry Christmas Banner

I chose the “Merry Christmas” wall hanging from Nancy Halvorsen’s Ho Ho Ho Let it Snow for my project this year.  Having just moved into a brand new home, I’m not sure where all my Christmas treasures will fit, so my solution is to make new treasures to fit with the old…

There are so many projects in Fresh Fabric Treats that would be such fun to make for gifts, that I had a bit of a hard time choosing just one.  For my "Gifty" project, I chose the Pack 'n Go Tote, made from 2-1/2" strips and I chose Jubilee Garden for the fabrics.…

Pineapple Pin Cushion

Posted on September 27, 2010 at 10:46am 8 Comments

OK, I totally spaced the need to blog about the Pineapple Pin Cushion that Mari designed for me! I just love anything pineapple, and have many in a fun collection. The day Mari was making decisions on the pin cushions she was going to include in the Gifty Galore selection, I told her they were all great, but she needed to come up with a pineapple. By the end of the day, there was indeed a pineapple in the group! Then I got to test the pattern and have one for my very own. It goes together like… Continue

Update on Beach Fun w/ Stash Builder Sampler

Posted on July 20, 2010 at 1:39pm 9 Comments

I took a couple photos of the beach fun projects in their new home at the beach. I decided that the placemats were safer on the end tables and in the center of the table than letting people put plates on them and eat. Then the table runner was just what was needed on the coffee table under the big bowl of shells.…

Hi Mary Jo, I am sorry that I missed being able to send you a "Happy Birthday" greeting earlier. I do try to do the b'day greets at night because I don't usually get on here until late in the day. That was a joke today- you know "Murphy's law". Any way, I will just say I hope you have had a wonderful day and a Happy Birthday.
