My creative spurt seems to be growing. While trying to think of where I want to go with the needle felted/thread painting project, I have created a few paintings and have been working on a thread painting. The two paintings are in acrylics and are of a sea turtle and a winter scene called garden gate. The thread painting I've entitled Spirit Wolf and has really been a challenge to work on, albeit a very enjoyable challenge.
May your creative juices flow and many enjoyable hours pass…Continue

Well, I'm finally, finally, back to weaving. On Tuesday I rethreaded the heddles on my floor loom, using the warp that was already on the loom left over from a previous project.
I had to change the tie-up, too, to weave what I wanted, but it was easier than I thought it would be. I'm using various scraps of…
Joanie and I went to the Acorn Antique Show in Ogden, Saturday, with her companion, Ana.
We had lunch at the Union train station, as usual, at the Union Grill. Joanie presented me with a boy sheep and a girl sheep for Mothers' Day. I took this selfie with my two new friends.…

I have finally been able to work on some creative endeavors. Thought I would post a few pictures, nothing earth shattering, just being glad to be able to do something positive for a change.
I was able to finish a UFO that I had started in 2002. When my husband, Frank, passed away, I had put it aside. Now seemed like a good time to finish it. I did the quilting on my new mid-arm and was surprised at just how quickly it seemed to get finished. The picture is before I put the binding on…Continue

Well, the elephant baby quilt I was going to make got put on hold. I was asked to make a Memory Quilt for Relay For Life to be auctioned off at our event we had on the 13th. My friend Gena and I had never done a Relay quilt before so this was a new experience for both of us. Gena is the main designer of our…Continue

It's been a hard week in the mountains of Utah. The weather was part of it.
That was taken Wednesday. We had several more inches over the weekend. I had to turn off the alerts on my weather app, because it kept waking me up at night and annoying me during the daytime. (As if I couldn't just…Continue
On Wednesday a snowstorm hit. Not some wimpy October snow that melts as soon as it hits the ground, no!
This was a regular, full-blown snowstorm.
We went out early in the day for a get-together with friends we met during the presidential campaign last year. We went to Kneader's at Kimball Junction for breakfast and caught up on…Continue
