Hand-dyed fabric and quilt created in August 2002. If I take a picture of every sell-able quilt in the house then perhaps I can set up my own Etsy store. Ha!   This is all cotton and measures 41″ x 41″.  $400

This bag was intended as a disguise and protection for a Kindle. The Kindle-cover recipient didn’t much care for the creation.   Never [...]

The hospital techs refer to this as a “hitchhiker splint”.  In our four hours in the ER Monday night when we heard this term bantered about we invisioned one of those metal finger braces wrapped in a simple bandage.  But no.  A bad cut and a broken thumb is considered quite serious and deserves the [...]
