Metal Birds are now Ready!

Goofy BirdsThe limited edition outdoor metal goofy birds are now ready. I have 11 available: 6 hot pink, 4 teal and 1 blue. They are priced at $35 each. If you are interested in one of these birds, I will have them at the Port Townsend Holiday Arts and Crafts Fair this Friday and Saturday (Nov 25-26, 2016) and Vern Burton Holiday Fair in Port Angeles Saturday and Sunday (Dec 3-4th, 2016). If you can’t make either of those shows, feel free to contact me via email at

The birds are made of steel and were fabricated by the Peninsula College Welding class. They are hand painted (by me) with an enamel sign paint. Most of the birds stand about 2-3 feet high.

Halloween is almost here

New Cross Stitch Designs

Spring  Time Cross Stitch Design

Spring Time Cross Stitch Design

Throughout my childhood and early adult years I did a lot of sewing and stitchery. But over 30 years ago, I moved on to do other forms of art. Recently I thought it might be fun to make some cross stitch patterns from my designs. There are 4 designs I am working on and will be making kits from these designs. Here is the first one, it is called “Spring Time”. The original is a colored pencil design.

It has been fun getting back into doing cross stitch. I’ll have some kits at my holiday shows.
