Irises Rimpa for Mary Louise, 8″ x 10″, Philadelphia, January 2021

This is a small rimpa of irises that I made in front of the TV one day in January 2021, which I thought my realtor Mary Louise would really like, as a closing/parting gift to her. She did! These are the photos she sent me of it in her living room. I am almost finished … Continue reading Irises Rimpa for Mary Louise, 8″ x 10″, Philadelphia, January 2021

Alice EPP, 56″ x 56″, Vermont, 2022

My first English Paper Piecing piece based on Tula Pink fabric. Nice project, easy to do and no big decisions to make in the beginning. Nice hand work that I needed back in my life. Hands bounce back from the work and strain just fine, so grateful! The top took 2.5 months to piece, now … Continue reading Alice EPP, 56″ x 56″, Vermont, 2022
