Making Lemonade

For those of you who know me, it's been quite the year to say the least! I feel the wind has shifted and changes are in the air...


For at least 40 years I have sewed daily. Quilts, draperies, Slipcovers, Pillows . you name it! Recently I have been painting, ALOT!!! About time I paint one of my trusty friends.

Body surfer

Wheres the surfer? perfect day at Kapalu on north shore. I didnt really finish this lesson in my workshop because I went body surfing instead! Perfect offshore breeze that blew the spay up into rainbows! Santa Barbara is almost perfect but I do wish the water is warmer!
