I wish I could be there, but this weekend I'm fully committed to being a workshop instructor and vendor at Fibrefest Almonte. See my last blog post for information.

Later this month (September 29/30), my friends at Quiltco will be having a show of their work at the Glebe Community Centre in Ottawa celebrating their 25 years in existence.


  1. Lovely work! The two photos above of the rock formations look like a place I have been to on my way to Phoenix AZ. Specifically, Antelope Canyon. The photos we took there are so awesome to go back to. The colours and light and shadow are breathtaking. Not like being there but a wonderful reminder.

    1. Thank you Wendy. These works were inspired by photos I took in Antelope Canyon 10 years ago! I kept going back to them and said I wanted to do a series about them, and one day I just sat down and started! I still have one more planned for the series, but not sure when I will get to it.
