Once upon a time...

About fifteen or twenty years ago I was commissioned to create something for a small but very tall elevator entrance at First Lutheran Church in St. Paul. They said anything I saw fit to put there would be great. So I made a five layer, 18 foot waterfall using an aqua blue lamee with a lot of machine stitching to create current, fish and other sea creatures.
Beads were added for special effect on the dragon fly, star fish and other images.

A plaque beside this piece gives an explaination of the baptismal waters ... but my name is not anywhere on the piece or plaque! Better take care of that.Posted by Picasa

Fabulous inspired photographs

I've just added my friend Robin Riggs to "My Blog List" (even tho it is not a blog). Robin lives in Southern California and is passionate about her photography. Each image offered will show the amazing results of Robin's patience. Every page of photos can be advanced so don't miss the second pages - and in one case about five pages. Take the time and you won't be disappointed.

Galloway Cows

We are staying with friends in Fearrington Village, NC which is near Chapel Hill. These are Galloway cows that roam the various fields in the village including right across the street. Aren't they unusual?!!!

Check out my fish pond!

You can feed the fish in the pond at the bottom of my blog. Just click anywhere and the fish will swim over and eat the food you left!

Betty's Bucket

So here is Betty's Bucket. It begins with a paint bucket size pail. It is covered with Betty Boop fabric, machine stitching and some metalic paint.

She's cute on the inside too!
...and the bottom. Now I'm hoping to see it at the MIA among the 5,000 other entries!Posted by Picasa
