Reminising in Langley
The Downtown Street
The Star Store, a vintage grocery
There are lots of nooks and cranies to explore
I retreat with my friends every January. Five days of fun. Sewing, eating, laughing, and visiting! For a number of years we went to a small resort village in beautiful Langley on Whidbey Island. Langley is a tourist destination and many businesses in immediate area promote themselves in tourist pamphlets available around the world. Langley is home to a 1930s era movie theatre, a grocery store of the same vintage, and several restaurants. On my way to present a lecture in a near by town, I stopped for a short visit.
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.
