October of 2017 I sold my house in California and moved to the mountains of North Carolina to be near my family, and the wonderful art community here.
In 2017 I had a very limited work schedule because of my move after  living in the same house for the past 40 years! You look at your possessions differently if you need to load them into a UHaul. My son drove the truck towing my 1968 Chevy PU and I followed in my car packed to the top including my cat. We made the 2243 mile trip in 3 days, driving 1,000 miles a day. Never again.
I am busy restoring my 1923 craftsman style farmhouse, loving every bit. I will be spending 2018 on a limited teaching schedule again thinking about how I want to spend my time here in North Carolina and coming up with some new things to teach. So far I have enjoyed hiking near my house, exploring what Asheville and area has to offer in the way of shops, food and meeting new friends, taking classes at John C. Campbell and having a blast.

Summer Camp #1 and #2, 2015

The first two summer camps of 2015 are over, sadly. Two wonderful groups of women. What fun.

Drue's dress before cutting

Tada, a bit blurry but I had to show you.

What a clothesline, oh ya, we did indigo too.

Julie's fabulous purse.

Julies' fabulous shirt and printed scarf to go with her purse.

I am in the process of updating my blog pages, adding photos to my gallery and adding more information to the Botanical prints pages. If you go to the home page and scroll down you will see lots of images including student work. I'm trying to make it easier to see what is on my blog.
If you are interested in signing up for workshops that page is almost finished, waiting for confirmations and more information for you.

county fair winner

Diane Christ, one of the students at my summer retreat won 2nd place with the cowl she made here. I'm proud.

And Donna won a prize at the Washington State fair with a scarf she made in my class!
