    I’m finally getting time to tell the story of the “Tree of Life” commission that I’ve been working on for over six months. So here goes.

    Last June I got an email from a rabbi in Reston, VA inquiring about the possibility of commissioning an artistic table cover for his congregation’s Torah table. He had foun […]

    Last week just flew by before I even realized it!
    I drove home from the fabulous Old Town Art Fair in Chicago on Monday–it was my first time doing the show and it was a lot of fun. The Old Town neighborhood is easily one of the most beautiful settings I’ve ever done a show in, and s […]

    Snow Day January 2011
    Our first snow day of the winter today. I grew up in Florida, so I really appreciate the down time that a snow day creates in my routine.  It’s different this year, though, because both boys are away at college, so my husband and I had to shovel the long drive by ourselves! We went out in the middle of the sto […]

    At right is “Twilight Sky,” the commission piece I just recently finished and delivered to the client.  It’s a skinny horizontal piece, about 26″h x 56″w and the couple commissioned me to make it to hang over a high narrow window in their home. This is the first time I’ve made a quilt to double as a wi […]
