where life takes us...
I may have been about 4+ here.  
This was our passport picture.  
We were off to France 
with my Dad and the Air Force.
Mom had never flown! 
Let alone across the ocean with a
precocious child and a baby!!
Found this while digging for photos last night and
it afforded me a blog title ... so many adventures.
What a journey this Magic Carpet has afforded me.
Early beginnings.
Finished and looking fairly organized.
Not so much these days!
This blog has taken me on a few adventures.
The above photo is courtesy of a special client.
What an honor to paint this
on the wall of this beautiful home.
... and now, it's available
on either 18ct or 13ct painted canvas!!
If you follow me on Facebook or Instagram,
you've seen my stitching progress
on the 13ct version.  It's to be a bench
cushion in my studio.
A place for my precocious
granddaugther to perch ...
or our newest addition,
a grandson to come this summer!
OR ... it can be yours!!
Next up ... want to learn how to make Kumihimo Braid???
I make these for all my purse designs, for me, they're perfect.
This is my Mod Ornament Purse.

Pictured above and below with my 
Mid Century Modern Purse©
 I'll be teaching this for 
as a POP UP class!
We're teaming up to run 
Studio Time
at the shop on the 
last Wednesday of each month.

Awe ... he's the sweetest,
always has my back.


  1. Hurrah! This canvas will be so much fun to stitch!

    1. I've binge watched all the Dr Who seasons Catherine! Moved onto movies like Jane Eyre and Becoming Jane Austen...😳

    2. Funny! My favorites are Outlander series and Designated Survivor. Two very different themes.

  2. Love the "rug" canvas! Just beautiful!

    1. Hi Karen,
      Hope you can join us for a class or studio time!
      Happy New Year!

  3. Wished I lived closer and could come to your class! Looks like it is going to be fun learning a new technique! Hope all goes well :)


Thank you for popping in.
Have a great day,
