"Oh, I just looked up Snohomish on a map, I doubt very much you get down to Astoria. "

"I love your work, very eye catching.  Do you ever do shows in the Astoria Oregon area?"

Jungle Jacket

"Thank you.  This might remind you of the Seminole piece work but it is mostly print fabric, not so detailed as the Seminole piecing.  It was still fun to create though.  Kinda wish I still had it, I haven't looked at this photo…"

Jungle Jacket

"Hi Jan, This one really caught my eye. Love it! (One stage in my life I made Seminole piece work jackets. This really has a somewhat similar feel.)"

Golden fluid acrylics

Posted on June 15, 2008 at 5:06pm 1 Comment

I finally bought some and am ready to learn how to use them. Seems like I read about other artists using them in so many ways and their colors are so bright and saturated which I love. I have tried to make do with my old student water colors and garage sale finds but now I want to get more serious with some paint. If I create anything I feel proud of I will post photos. Also bought some Golden Soft Gel medium and some UTEE. I'm dangerous now!

Hi Jan, I got my Babylock embellisher on Valentine's day, an early 65th birthday present and am hooked. Color, yarns, texture, on and on. It takes some patience to work it and not break needles-at least with the Babylock, you can replace individual needles, rather than whole cylinder. In April, birthday time, I got the seven needle second hand. I go back and forth. I am off to Cambridge, England for a couple of weeks and am going to take hand punch so I don't go too crazy without my tools.
Hot here. We've had a long and gorgeous spring and summer beginning in April.
Now our garden needs a lot of watering, with temps near 100. I bet flowes and colors and shapes influence you as well. Good to be friends.

Hi Jan, thanks for the invite. It's fun to share our creativity with people all over the world.

Jan, you and I communicated our mutual pleasures of exchanging ATCs. I just wanted all of our Fiber Arts friends to know that I simply love you little Aceo/ATC. There is so much detail in your work with the edge stitching, fibers, quilting, beautiful beads and wonderful colors! I am extremely happy with my little Art from you. Thanks, Diana

Hi, THIS is why your name is familiar! (My brain is swimming with a sea of names and relationships this week.) Yes! send me your address and I will send you a fiddle camp ATC.
I just watched your slideshow again. You do such fabulous work.

Hi Jan. You asked about my peace doll 2. It's about 8 inches tall. Thanks for the nice comments.

Hi Jan, There are two or three ATC's in my pic file. Two are African style, picture 8 and the other one is a mixed media one that is pink in colour. I would make a new one just for you if you still want to trade. Donna

Hi Jan - I do remember! I have some seashore ATCs left - they are listed on etsy at the moment - I'll convo you there.

Hi Jan,
Thanks for the invite! The difference between your work and your icon made me smile! :-)

Hi Jan,
I love your use of colour, and unusual combinations of shape and pattern. If I managed to get you going again with Friendly Plastic, you have certainly given me food for thought with your design skills.
