A non-traditional quilt. Made back in 1993...20 years ago. I can still remember making this fun portrait quilt. It's about a twin size, and made of polyester..totally. At the time I was a member of a quilt club, and there was a great deal of discussion about traditional quilts being made of 100% cotton. And then, my "art-heart " went, "but what if", I used only a synthetic fabric?
I can remember my sister coming up with the name for this quilt, and so I added it to the
design. And, twenty years later, this quilt is just as it was, the day I made it. :)

Hello, my name is Phillip. I am a paper clay and wire figure, approximately 14" tall. I am dressed in a conventional Victorian swimsuit. Ready for a day at the seashore. And a lovely day it is indeed!
Well, it's been jolly chatting with you. So, have a pleasant day, old mate. Don't forget, put both oars in the water and you'll get there sooner. For tea...of course. Cheerio!

Good Morning! This is baby Adam. He arrived just the other day. I came across this fabric in the stash and decided it would make a good character. I grabbed the scissors, and started cutting. He is all boy...curious thing about boy dolls...there is no doubt that this is a boy! In my studio, it's good to be real.
Keep it Real People. Make it a good day (:

The birds are back and in full song...how wonderful to hear them once again!! This little purple scrapper is a felted character I worked on recently. Adding to my flock of birds, I am hoping to have them on display somewhere on the home place.
Hope your week is off to a good start....and you can enjoy the view from there!

This is BLINK, I call her that because she doesn't blink.....the communication has been difficult, so I gave her that name. The planet she comes from is quite obscure, and the name, unpronounceable.
As we get to know one another better, her story will unfold...but for now...BLINK....won't!
Have an "interesting" day....and don't forget to blink.... :)

Hannah's Handbag was made from Grandpa's old jeans and a splash of Grandma's crocheted flowers.
With a touch of whimsical fabric for a cheerful lining, and a bit of velcro to secure the lip gloss and other incidentals every girl needs on the go, the bag is ready for a day into town!
There is even a handy pocket for that phone, and some change, too! So fun to make this!!
I hope your day is blooming!!

This is another altered book. I used the covers from an antique album, taking the worn and ugly pages out of it, the covers proved to be worthy of a face lift. Fortunately the clasps were both still on the book, so I used those for the hanger.
Adding some pretty papers, and a quote I found in an art magazine. It proved to be a "joy" to make. I hope you have a good day, my dear family and friends! :)

Starting on January 2, 2005 I started a new art project. Creating small works of art on a 2 1/2 x 3 1/2 " card of sturdy material...cardboard, watercolor paper......I painted, glued, and drew my way through 2,000 cards.

Hello Everyone! Here is a fun little project that I did. My daughter brought over a bag full of these tiny tins. She gathered them up at a friends house, with the idea that I might want to do something with them. And so I did, refrigerator magnets that can have a "sweet" look, a nice message, and a hidden gift of candy or a memento for someone special.
Inside I glued some vintage photos, and a bit of magnetic strip on the back, and it's set to go on top of the art gallery in the kitchen!
Ta-Dah!! Refrigerator Art. A basket of love sent off to you on this May Day! Audrey
