Solar Power 22" w x 27" h 2011


























Throughout history, many cultures and civilizations have worshipped the sun for its power to enhance life.
This is my interpretation of the prompt sunshine.  It was supposed to have metal embellishment so I added  the painted metal plug plate to symbolize our modern need for the sun's power.

Monoki 18" x 18" 2011
























On my creative journey, occasionally I give my right brain a little break by working on another artist's pattern.
The design for this little quilt is by Ursula Riegel (www.designstoshare.com).
I made it for the Little Quilt raffle at my local quilt guild, Common Threads, in July.

Grace's Birthday Strips 2011

As I promised a couple of posts ago, here is the entire group of strips created by my artists group Loose Threads for member Grace.  Can you see she requested a garden theme?  The two cute ones on the left did not consult with each other about finding inspiration from That Patchwork Place.  The dark strip in the middle contains real jewelry as well as her signature beaded fringe.  On the right are red silk geraniums and on top a feast of stitched and embellished texture.  My poppies and wine glass glow nicely in the group.  I have to wait all the way till August for my birthday strips.
