You might remember my photo in the summer regarding the lack of a drop of water in the Fresno River.. Well with the rain it is finally running and bringing water to all the wild animals, trees and all that depend on it. It is beautiful to see and hear.. Smells wonderfully fresh, with all the green grass around.. It is a shame that water from the mountains gets diverted by old arrangements and that this will be bone dry in the summer because they Turn It Off.. Politically called diverting to other areas.. I think they are selling it.. and can not find out who.... hope they use it sparingly, because fish, animals and plants die when there is no water...So do our fruits, veggies, and Calif. Farms. Remember what the farms can't grow you can not eat.
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.
