Photo to journal to quilt.

It's been an unusual day. I had to down tools and go inside because we had a tremendous storm….I've just watched the news and trucks were tipped over, power poles bent in half and a lot of damage has been done in the area.Then the power went out for a couple of hours….. This photo…

New Ideas…… 99% there.

I've been writing for the past couple of days… I have a deadline… but in writing I need to illustrate. Rather than do new ones, I decided to use my journal drawings. This drawing is a collage of images in Mexico. I want to teach my students how to create a collage in this form…

Shading.

  I've been working on my Alphabet today…. NO, they don't have heads,  BUT, they do eventually find  them at the end of the story … and then its a puzzle as to which head belongs on which letter!!!!! I'm not giving away the story. OK, this is the beginning of the letter "J" for…

I finished the video today but the voiceover is with a rather husky voice… Traveling and Quilting affords me the most wonderful experiences… I can photograph them, I can write about them, but there is nothing better than the visual experience so now I have a date to study documentary making it's rather exciting…I hope…

Bugs and blooms

I'm pushing uphill tonight and a feeling a little fragile…..I've succumbed to a chest infection and I feel as if I have a brick sitting on my bosom… It's pouring with rain, it's very cold so I'm going to indulge in an evening under the quilt watching TV.Despite my croaky voice the program went well…

A special event.
