On the Couch


Sunday, Fort Lauderdale, 3pm
juried into The Quilted Surface VI
Ross Art Museum Delaware, Ohio
May 18 to July 4
This is a photo of my grandmother, third from the left, her sister Kitty, far left and Kitty's husband Jim Tranter, he was an owner of Fasig-Tipton the auction house for all the racing thoroughbreds. I think this was taken in the thirties. I'm not sure who the lady on the right was, but she was very elegant.
The Quilted Surface is part of Quilt Surface Design Symposium. If you want to go, classes are filling up. But there are some good ones left. Bob Adams is teaching discharge and he is an excellent source of knowledge as to the safe way to do things. The first 2 1/2 days are discharge and the last 2 1/2 days are putting the discharged pieces together.
My friend Diane Herbort is going to teach a collage class. If you want to improve your design skills this is a great class, you start in paper and work your way to cloth. Great for people who want to dip their toe in the Art Quilt pool. And it should be fun!
I am taking a master class with Judy Hooworth. Hope to see you there!
And my website www.textilearttipple.com is back up with more quilts in the gallery and all the links (so far) showing up. Finally.

Riding Shotgun


It's always best to take some one along to watch your back when cleaning horse stalls.
You never know when a kitty may sneak up on you.











Or this could sneak up on you!
Does that blanket need washing or what?
And what about the belly hanging out?
Actually that is her baby basket, but I am
not looking to fill it.
