Peggy Wilson Class-WIP

Peggy Wilson, what a wonderful teacher and marvelous person this lady is!  Her classes are small (only 15 persons) so that she is able to give each of her students individual attention!  This was a two day class, I learned so much it was unbelieveable!!!!!!  If you get the chance to take a class with this wonderful artist, don't hesitate.  I have a very short list of teacher's that I will take a 2nd class from, and she is definitely on it!
       As usual, I ventured off on my own path...LOL...Thank Goodness, Peggy didn't mind at all!  We all started out making the Queen of Hearts, "Off with her head"....  however, once I got the mouth done, I realized she wasn't screaming, but singing...  so here is my work in progress...  She will be "Earth Mother Goddess" when she is done.

Quilt square for Hoppa and Brucie Baby's Wedding....

Two of my friends are tying the knot soon, not once but twice!  Once with there family and loved ones, and the 2nd time with there doll family and love ones (which I am part of) at a marvelous annual doll conference known as the "RenoIowa Doll Conference", held alternatively been Reno and Iowa, by Jean Bernard and Sherry Goshon.  They have requested that quilt squares be made by each of us, those who will be attending and those unable to attend.  Besides being known as "Bubbles" by my Vintage Trailer Friends, I am known as the Phoenix in doll making circles--hence, I chose to create this piece for their quilt.  Best of luck, love and happiness guys!

I can not believe!.......

that it is already mid March!  Where has time flown off too?  I've been busy, busy with school of course, and have been doing lots of art work!  One of my favorite classes is bookmaking.  I have made pocket books to hold all my needles, art books, art field journals, books with covers and books that close using ribbions and skewers with rubber bands!  So, school has kept me jumping for sure!  

Winter seems to be never ending here in the Rocky's.  Yesterday was a mix bag of snow, rain, sleet, sunshine, rain, more snow and more sunshine....  over night is snowed an additional 3 inches, such is life in New Mexico.  Don't like the weather?  Wait 5 minutes, it's likely to change.  

Let's see, since I last wrote, I've seen Avatar.  Amazing movie...  Loved it.  Sherlock Homes, Robert Downey Jr.  was amazing and must have trained hard as his naked upper torso was really sweet eye candy and I just saw Alice....  Woo Hoo....  another amazing film.
