A Little Artsy

Brooke's Eyes

My niece, was redoing her room. The theme she was going for
was a black/gray studio feel. The room was in need of a very dramatic art piece. Brooke has long dark hair with deep blue eyes, plus the longest eyelashes I have seen.

I came across a online class by Ellen Lindner. Even though the class was not on specifically eyes, I knew I could use this technique while making this.
The fabric was applied to a canvas and sealed with a medium fixture. Then it was framed and looks beautiful in her room. I could have done this as a quilt, but the room needed art work in a frame.

For more information on Ellen's class go to
The class is "Sticky Fingers"
You will see Brooke's Eyes in the Students Gallery

Ski Utah!!

Our oldest son is a junior in college, here in New Jersey. Last year, after a ski vacation in Utah, we came home and he applied for a internship at Deer Valley Ski Resort in Park City.
And he was accepted!
So this past December he moved to Utah!
As much as we miss him, this is a Wonderful Experience for him!

Deer Valley


As here is the quilt that he left home with his freshman year.
Not that you can tell from the photo---There is not a flower (the only request) on it anywhere!
It is a dorm bed size.

While in Utah the World FIS Championships were being held in Park City!
There were 33 countries represented.
How Lucky were we!

And here is the topper!
I did NOT go to one quilt store this visit. And Utah has many wonderful shops.
Since I was there last winter and this fall helping the economy. This trip was all about the 4 of us being together. It was Great!
