Big Donation Day!

 Nineteen quilts went out the door today! Ten went to the YWCA Safe Choice Shelter and 9 to Ray Hickey Hospice Center, both in Vancouver. 

These to the YWCA are from Mary in Ridgeway.



And these are mine.










This one to Ray Hickey Hospice is by Chris in Vancouver.


Another from Mary in Ridgeway.

And the others are mine.








Thanks for the time and effort of those who contributed. Also, I should give a shout out to Hilly from Wilsonville who has completed the hand binding on 115 of our donated quilts!!

Quilts to Rose Haven

 It's been awhile since I had quilts ready to donate, but now the logjam is breaking loose. Today I delivered 12 quilts to Rose Haven Women's Shelter in Portland. Eight were crib quilts, mostly from anonymous donors from Alaska. Two of the crib quilts were contributed by Marie of Vancouver. The larger lap-size quilts are mine. I should have more donations within a week. A little more organizing  and they will be ready to go!

 In case you missed it, the Visions Art Museum in San Diego put on a wonderful virtual opening for Shifting Tides and two other exhibitions that are at the museum right now. Musician Fred Benedetti provided music paired with the artwork. Take a look. It's worth your time.

CVG 2021

The 2021 CVG Show opens at the Collective Visions Gallery in Bremerton, Washington on January 23. The gallery will be open to visitors, subject to Covid restrictions. A variety of virtual events are planned. See the Gallery's website for the latest information. 

My quilt, Line Dry, will be included in the exhibit. This quilt was inspired by my trip to India and Nepal in 2013. During a walk through the older part of Khajuraho I saw colorful saris hanging on clotheslines adorning dwellings painted Mediterranean blue. Upon my return home, those images made their way forward.
