gifting you all with a snap of my beautiful dried black eyed suzy's ~
I  L O V E them and they make me happy :)

love tiny ironstone pitchers too ~

 and I've been working on some of these in between walks in the woods:

tiny black kitten in Witch's Slipper

room for your scissors too!

or, if the kitten is cranky ~ just your scissors...
 and hasn't the weather been 
for an AUTUMN Wedding?


'do you love me?
or do you not...
...you told me once,
but I forgot!'
 here is a snap of my cheddar quilt on my rack in the keeping room ~

~ perfect colors ~
 when I'm not creating something, 
or taking photos, 
or blogging, 
or walking in the woods, 
or taking care of my family, 
...or fur & feathered friends...
I do 
T H I S:

sketch in my books!

started this on in 2009

I like to add pieces of cloth that inspires me ~

new designs in progress ~

old sketches still inspire today ~

Whatever you choose to do today,
may your heart be filled with light!

*Blessed be, my Friends*

Love the cheddar quilt!
Nice kitty in the shoe too!
I've been keeping scrap/sketch books for years. Funny how you can go back and the same feeling you had when the idea was entered returns. I would lose my inspiration if I didn't record them!

Hi Lori,
I have a very large ring binder with many drawings, notes and colors that I do first before I cut any fabrics out...your sketches are much more realistic than mine though.

Your creations have YOUR mark...you have a unique look to all of your designs.

Love the sketch book. I have a huge one--13 x 15, but it needs some decorations for the cover. Your blog is always such an inspiration. Love the little kitten in the witch's slipper!

The 1st "bigger" than a mat design that I hooked was your 2009 witch in your sketch book. I love her and hang her on the wall for the month of October ...Your work is always inspiring.
