I love to dye fabric, make thread pictures and quilt. I live in the Yukon on an acreage with my husband, 2 dogs and 34 fish. It's the 'good' life.

Quick Piece

It feels so good to be producing art again after a very long dry spell. I have had a difficult time in the last year, and I think that has affected my creativity. 

However I think I am in the homestretch!  I even feel like exercising again, and this always happens when the weather warms up. I think I need to move somewhere that winter does not take up 8-9 months of the year.

So this little piece is a nod to winter breakup--when the Yukon River starts to flow again, when the little bushes along the riverbank begin to get leaves, and spring arrives in the Yukon.

Spring can't come too soon for me!


  1. It is a lovely piece , so glad you are back to creating and like you I am hoping spring comes real soon!

  2. Very pretty :) love the colors !

    Do more!!

    1. Thanks Monika. You are always so supportive. :-)
