Archives for 2010

Seeing how this was Christmas week, I wasn’t exactly spending time in my studio. The most creative thing I’ve done with my fabrics this week is to tie a scarf around Puncher’s neck and attach a Santa hat to my cowboy hat.  I made this pillow a few weeks ago before I started the blog. The fabric […]

T.H. (Trophy Husband) went to Colorado on business for two days so I guess that left me in charge. That means I’m the boss of me. So being the boss of me, I decided to give myself a day off. Not really. The only thing he asked me to do while he was gone was to […]

I joined the Creative Everyday Challenge for 2011 even though it’s technically still 2010 I will be posting weekly through my blog what I am creating and then sharing with dozens of artists around the world.  I love technology and the community it creates!  I made this pillow from a remnant purchased at my newest “favorit-est” fabric store […]

There are a few things on this ranch that I just love to look at everyday. Makes me feel good and smile inside.  I rode out on the 4wheeler to catch up my horses and bring them back in closer to the house for the rest of the winter.  First, I had to find them. I honestly […]

Because today is Friday, it sounds like a good day to post about my Fiber Art. This is what I do.  I make things with Fabric and Textiles. My art is evolving. It laid dormant for 30+ years. In my teens and twenties I was a talented clothing and textile designer with a college degree […]

. This is usually about the time I tell Tip  “Sorry buddy, you can’t go today”. But not this day. We were moving our steers home to ship the next day. Puncher was still laid up, and it was a short gather and drive down the highway from the neighbors ranch. The weather was cool. Just perfect for […]

These are two of my twelve barn cats. They won’t stay in the barn. They prefer the porch. A certain dog chewed up the pillows of my wicker porch chairs last summer  Better the pillows than the chairs themselves. So being how winter is here, I decided to make slip covers for them so my […]

Some of our steers fell in love with the neighbors cows.   Before we could ship the steers we needed to go get them. Trophy Husband (T.H.) sucked the cows into the corner of the adjoining pasture with the pickup and round bale attached. I brought up the stragglers on Paint. This time of year there are not many stragglers.  That round bale with the horn honking is a […]

I wonder what Ol’ Paint was thinking here?  What was I thinking?  My evil twin was laughing hysterically (in her head of course).  Part of the reason for my amusement was that this has happened to me last summer, in the exact same spot on my brand new shiney red 4wheeler. However, I did not have such an easily, […]

Here’s my story:   “On the last day of Roundup,  Puncher became a victim of Mad Cow Disease! She got attacked by a mean, snot throwing, raging mad, mother cow….. and  and  stomped her into the ground…… and and  broke her foot. …… and and….”   Well, not exactly.  We cowgirls and cowboys (mostly cowboys) love to tell stories about […]
