not only involves new, fresh inventory but also making sure everything needed
for an outdoor show is packed in the van. The goal is to take as little as

twice to become familiar with how it went together.

|As the fair season begins, I find little time to write about the current directions in
the pieces with names such as "Newport", Manzanita" and "Florence". These
represent not only place names from the Oregon Coast but new styles in my collection.
|It was a great experince to work with DG Palmer of Scopic Magazine. I am
delighted my work is featured on the cover and photographed at the historic
Mission Mill in Salem, Oregon.

|At the water's edge...
Edges are important to weavers. Good, even edges are a sign of mastering the craft...
I like the water's edge. Maybe this will show up in the new body of work...
|I will strive to bring beauty into the world as tribute to my Mother (1924-2012) and Father (1924-2010).

|This is a new accessory this year. It is a handwoven chenille collar. It has a
beautiful petal like quality to it with it's ruffled edge. Turn it side ways for a
different look. One really can't go wrong putting it on!
They come in many colors and are priced at $125.00. It is a great addition to

|I have a new favorite tool
in my sewing studio. It is
a seam ripper made by a
craftsman. Good tools
are everything to an
artist. The handle fits
the hand nicely. The tool
has good balance and the
blade is sharp. I can
reverse the blade and
store it in the handle, too.
I have broken so many
plastic versions of this
tool! This one is a keeper.
