1. Color is very important in my work- thus I started with a rainbow of colors. The buttons represent my participation in the group’s first project – Mantles
2. A house rendering - one of many I did for the Wilmette house walks years ago.
3. My sample of leno lace required for the Certificate of Excellence in Weaving. My attention span did not last long enough to exhaust the many possibilities therein.
4. An image of a cover I did for the Chicago Tribune many years ago, found on the children’s book section. Fabric collage.
5. Small cityscape – Buildings seemed like the perfect comparison to weaving – horizontal and verticals – warps and wefts. I enjoyed the design process but the execution was far too labor intensive.
6. An example of tapestry weaving– should be the same on both sides - I did get it right.
7. Lace – A major discipline under the category of fiber – There are so many types – A needleworkers dream – A wedding dress challenged my interests and abilities in working with lace.
8. One of my favorite subjects – flowers!
9. Recently I have been working with ribbons - so many colors and textures –wonderful subjects.
10. Collage with the subject of flowers and button accents - endless possibilities.
My life with my favorite people – three sons and a daughter – four grandsons and two grand-daughters and a wonderful husband. I am so very fortunate. They are a constant study.
