My Artist Friend Joan and her Thread Collection

Joan has an array of thread colors and some are silky and some are shimmery.

So many different types of thread.

She makes beautiful fiber art,

and paints

and draws in ink.

Watch for her Female Martyr Series this summer.

You’ve seen Joan looking at Larimer School where she used to teach Art.



Spools of Thread

Even her pincushions are interesting.

and Joan on her back porch.  Her garden is so interesting.  Will have to do a photo tour.

Joan grows the best rhubarb and puts up delicious apricot preserves.

  1. One of my favorite things about quilting was sorting out and arranging all the beautiful colors so photos like your threads make me want to go find some beautiful colors to arrange!

    • Thanks Naomi. And I shared your Detroit post. It was wonderful.
      School ends Friday so perhaps my replying to comments will increase but I certainly appreciate your visits and good words.

Thanks for your visit. It's always good to hear you stopped by.
