Copper Creek Lodge at Hells Canyon
Rustic wilderness with the comforts of home - that's the Copper Creek Lodge, 70 miles upriver and deep in the wilds of Hells Canyon. Swim and sun at the river's edge, explore the back country on nature trails, or read in the shade of the Trees of Heaven.
Savor the serenity of nighttime in Hells Canyon where the moon and stars are jewels on black velvet.
And the bear ate our lunch! Sometime in the night the bear decided he wanted our lunch, so he climbed on the boat and ate it!
My quilts are colorful, graphic, vibrant and joyful!! I use color and texture to explore the glories of nature. Realism or abstraction, are used as best fits a theme or concept. I enjoy the challenge and excitement of translating my vision into quilts through a rich variety of fabrics, gilding and embellishment.
I find such joy in being able to express myself through quilting, that I'm not comfortable without a needle in my hand. Quilting is my life's work and a wonderful one at that.
The best quilt is always the next one.
I am proud to be participating in the Alzheimer's Art Quilt Initiative, a program to raise awareness and fund research for Alzheimer's disease. It has two parts: a traveling art quilt exhibit interpreting Alzheimer's in fiber art that will tour the US for three years, and an on-going sale of small art quilts. All proceeds will go to Alzheimer's research.http://www.alzquilts.org/
