Total Yardage  web

Our annual retreat is held at the funky Franciscan Guest House in Kennebunk, Maine.  It’s a sweet location within a twenty minute drive to the best fabric shopping in New England! At Marden’s in Sanford my haul averaged $2.90 per yard!

I'm Having Fun  web

I was having a good time!

This is the project I worked on. All of the small blocks were pieced before I got there and I pieced all the rows in one direction while I was there. I get easily distracted so I was more I interested in socializing and observing what others were doing this time.

The natural world is phenomenal and so much of the man-made world - our architecture, our cities - are stunning accomplishments. They exist hand in hand in both beautiful expressions and sometimes disastrous manifestations. Our entire existence with the natural and the invented is intertwined – each dependent on the other, even as my art evolves, each breathing in the wake of the other. Surface design is one aspect of the process that I love. I thoroughly enjoy the play with color, value and construct, particularly the improvisation which starts with one thing, an idea, a glimpse of a vision, perhaps something that captures my eye for a moment in time and it grows organically. I become focused on whatever piece I'm working on and follow my muse to find my way.

  1. So glad that you visited Maine! I’m lucky enough to live 15 minutes from the Marden’s in central Maine, 2 hours north of the one you shopped. At least there isn’t 3 feet of snow in southern Maine – we just added 18 more inches this past week. Enjoy your fabric art!
