Mixed emotions, sadness and sheer joy. A textile journey.

We began the tour with a visit to the historic India gate. Whilst photographing the landmark itself, we noticed 50 or more women working in the gardens close by. They carried long hand-made brooms and their brightly colored clothing was obscured at times by a small cloud of dust as they swept the ground. Some ladies were crouched pulling weeds. The temperature and the humidity was in the 90’s, I just can’t imagine how hard that is.

The way I see things – translating your images to textile art.

I see things. Well, not bad things, I see things that make my heart stir. It’s not like a scary movie. I call it Capture and Create. I’m doing a lunch time lecture in Houston called “You must plant seeds today for a harvest later”  These are the things I will be sharing, plant the…

Gals on the road -learning about creativity.

We’ve had 5 days in Santa Fe and its been the most wonderful experience. There is so much to like about this city. Everyone we’ve met has been very helpful and a pleasure to visit with. We’ve made a lot of new friends.

I love the climate at this time of the year but the locals tell me it’s a little hot for this time of the year. I’m a very visual person. Everywhere I turn there is beauty and things that I’ve never seen before.

To say that Santa Fe is unique is an understatement.
