Scuffed White...

Who would have guessed that one day my scruffy walking shoes would be considered art - not I that's for sure!

Hardly A Harley

Richard bought me a Harley cap at a garage sale - to go with my new bike!

My story...

An article about me and my artwork has recently been published in the German publication "Lena's Patchwork & Applikationen".  I just received my copies of the magazine yesterday.  How cool is that?!


A special thank you to Prof. Dr. Anne-Marie Grundmeier of the Institut fur Technik, Haushalt und Textil in Freiburg, Germany, for making this possible.

It's My Birthday!

Here I am on the eve of my 65th birthday - I cannot believe that I'm actually on Medicare.  Where did the time go?!  To celebrate, I bought myself a present - an Intuous 4 tablet.  (Just what I needed - another toy!)

I'm determined to develop my Photoshop Elements skills by trying new techniques as often as possible.  They say "practice makes perfect".  Well,  I'll never be perfect, but it's always a thrill to try something new and have it work!
