Back to Visual Journals


Moving right along with my journal

Our Plumeria trees are just starting to bloom

We got out of the house and took a drive

I decided to make my own Bitmoji for my What’s for Dinner posts on FB

Getting back into painting with watercolors and it gave me so much joy

Knives out!

My Tuesday lunch went from being in our cars to sitting in a park with our masks on

Wash your hands

Covid 150,000 Americans have lost their lives to the Pandemic

Me in the pool on my donut ring. Ultimate relaxation 

My last journal entry for this format. 9 months of drawing everyday

My new thing. Drawing and painting my daily life. This has made me so happy during these tough times of staying safe at home

July 31. Steve and I wearing our masks. Onward and upward to the next chapter!

The Flying Fish


Every quilt project begins with fusing the fabrics with Mistyfuse. I was asked to make a 12” square fish quilt for SAQA Florida for their Fresh Fish exhibit that will be displayed at the SAQA conference in April of 2022

I had theses leftover from another project, and I thought they would make good fish bodies. These fabrics are from my Hopscotch fabric line with RJR 

And wouldn’t it be fun to use this bird fabric from my watercolors? 

Perhaps showing my sense of humor? 

The fish needed crowns too. This was fused onto a piece of black wool blended felt from National Nonwovens. I don’t use batting and don’t need to do binding

Under the sewing machine needle

The piece is backed with orange wool blended felt too. 12x12 The Flying Fish

The back, so you can see the stitching!

I Got in the Groove to Paint!


It nice to know when I planted the pea seeds!

New watercolor painting!



So happy!



If you don’t stand for something...



I have really enjoyed getting in touch of painting again 

I am fine. My sinuses were clear. It’s STRESS. Need more exercise and less news

I had a hard week with health issues and a project I’ve been working on since March has been a pain to deal with

Serenity garden

The pink house





And ending with me in my garden of imaginary flowers!

Moving Along


Moving along and still safe at home

View from my coffee cup

Big gardening weekend, even though it was quite hot

I spend a lot of time in the pool swimming laps, treading water and just floating

Read, swim, relax



Some days just don’t go the way you planned

Pink daisies! So sweet

My friend Libby and I had our first social distancing lunch out on our patio, instead of in our cars

Working on my next fabric line with RJR Fabrics. It will be my 5th line with them!

Staying at home is weighing on me, so I have to think about the things I am thankful for 



I’ve been having sinus issues since January, and now I am going to take the leap and see an ENT

My short haircut is growing! 


New watercolor painting! Thanks for stopping by my blog! Have a good week!
