    Forest for the Trees

    Forest for the Trees is a Yarn Bombing Los Angeles exhibit at the Tom Bradley International Terminal at LAX airport. It was installed in March 2019 and will be up for 6 months.

  • Fabric Triangle

    The best toy I’ve ever made for a 1-year-old or younger has to be a fabric triangle. The first little boy I made one for is now six. Where did the time go! Anyway he still owns and loves his triangle. His is a monster. My most recent one was for my youngest nephew. He grabbed […]

  • Double Potholder

    I sold a double potholder I custom made for a friend and ever since I’ve been meaning to make one for my husband. I had to adjust the sizes for larger hands and some how manage to use up the scraps (I mean remnants!). I had a personal goal of not buying anything new for […]

  • Sewing Projects

    I’ve been sewing up a storm behind the scenes. Many were presents so had to wait till they were given to their owners before any images could be seen online. A few are still being worked on for presents and December holidays, those will remain behind the scenes. Here are a few photos.  

  • Paper & Glue

    I have received all of my art supplies from storage back east and it is now time to incorporate them into some new pieces! While modifying the old. Particularly thinking about incorporating my Teabag Reuse Project and Full Circle: rebirth of a tree projects with my paper and muslin shirts.

I still need to take some images, fix some sewing experiments finish a bird. Yes a bird. Here are some pictures of the potholder and a […]
