This serene corner of the Japanese Garden with the raked sand and brilliant poppies was just the perfect setting for the morning. We lunched at the Irwin Street Inn in Hanford after our tour.. Everyone should take some time to play.. We even found an Iris Farm on the way home and purchased 4 containers with Iris bulbs.. the surprise will be when they bloom... I asked for yellows, and then what ever. Last time my husband bought Irises all the plants that had ice cream names.. One of the new purchases is named Blue Suede Shoes... bet it is blue!
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.
