I like to make all kinds of quilts, from postcard to king-size. I have a Gammill longarm quilting machine, several domestic sewing machines, and also work with a Babylock Embellishing machine. In the past few years, I have tried my hand at painting with watercolors and art journaling. I also throw in a little nature photography and the occasional travel or grandchild pictures. Thanks for stopping by!

Here is Beverly's finished quilt with die-cut flowers lined up, marching in rows.
The cutting garden I planted in front of our porch on Easter weekend also has flowers marching along. I am especially happy with the marigolds and sunflowers, all of which I ordered from Gurney's.
The sunflowers are about five-six feet tall, with assorted color schemes. I like the yellow and brown combination.
And this orange/yellow flower is rather splendid.
There are many heads blooming on the same stalk without the need for staking.
The Fourth of July is approaching, so here is a little blue bachelor's button that made it into the garden somehow...
And, although I first feared that Audrey II had been killed by last winter's heavy freezes, here are the buds about to open again. They will be a vibrant, glowing red.
We are having gobs of company this weekend, including Dave and Emily and little Roo, eight of their friends, four more dogs, and Charlie's brothers and families. Should be a glorious Fourth!
