The adventure begins.

Snow is resting on the ground. There are no leaves on the trees and there is a distinct chill in the air but the sun was gorgeous this afternoon as we flew in from Dallas. Lincoln Nebraska. 29 hours of travel and I'm Here…. finally……      

Ooooooh Sigh

Life is hectic and full of surprises. It's self inflicted – I'm just having a whine…..but I will be able to put business aside for a short time next week. Today we've been working on our hotel, trust me folks… the events there will be very exciting. It's taking longer than we thought but well…

Artist Michelle Cassou states "To be creative means becoming more familiar with being a little lost. If we are always…

Chris, this is another sample you can see that it looks like thread, this was a photo of beads in a shop….. I would have loved to have my Mum embroider it.

It gets printed on fabric because I'm testing a new type of fabric. I select the colors, and sandwich the…

Erasable pens.

More Fabric.

  This one will accompany the Quail.   I designed this one a long time ago…. surprisingly it turned up in class one day…. I got a shock… sure it had been changed a little but… it was still pretty close…. !!!!!!
