oh joy. oh bliss. oh rapture. today i leap back into the world of the positive as i share with you some Very Good News: in the past hour, i received an email from ebay notifying me that the star next to my name is now blue. yes, indeed. you are reading this from the […]

today i work on deconstruction, disassembling a piece that i am unhappy with without any idea what it will look like when i put it back together. as i work, pieces of another less tangible cloth also in process of being reworked become clear: it’s important to have recent pictures of loved ones – regardless […]

one day i’m gathering red clay for autoquiltography two, the next day i’m enduring a police search that spanned hours, days, eons. my daughter – my beautiful, talented, intelligent, messy daughter was missing. someone slipped a date rape drug into her drink, and the next thing she knew it was around 2 a.m. she called […]

i spent earth day collecting red clay from spots of earth where i grew up. the house my mom and dad built where i spent my baby days – the H can still be seen in the chimney. red dirt from the land where my doting grandparent’s house once stood. red clay from the yard […]

while being quiet, i upgraded to leopard, upgraded blog to wordpress 2.5 – both without incident, thank goodness, spent a week at the beach with my daughter, and i got my potter’s mark designed – at least i have a good start, knowing that it might change later. plus i learned a new photo editing […]
