The Capone kids came to visit and help. Each time they come from Orange Co. they add something to our landscaping. One year they built the brick patio in the front yard under the old Oak. A perfect place to sit and enjoy the quiet, until a cat leaps on your lap.. This year they helped put electrical in my Gourd studio, and Ralphs little storage building. It is fun having them visit and enjoy the country, a big change from city living. No snakes this visit.
I am a mixed media fiber/quilt artist who loves to work with gourds,and jewelry. I am easily distracted with the next project, and have many going at one time. I have been teaching Fabric Dyeing and Beginning gourd art for many years. I am blessed with my own home studio. We live in the rolling hills near Yosemite National Park, in central Calif. U.S.A. This is a place of Inspiration, Blue Skies and Great Friends. I volunteer with several organizations,and have memberships in P.E.O., Coarsegold Historical So., Sierra Art Trails, Madera Circle Gallery, Yosemite Western Artist, Timberline Gallery and Sierra Mountain Quilters. I teach at my home studio and at local quilt gatherings.
