Intro, which means I start it. In other words, herbs departed

I am a quilter, fiber artist, textile architect. I specialize in incorporating your favorite textiles into useful art whether it is a uniform redesigned into a purse or your favorite shirts recycled into a quilt. I also depict homes in pictorial quilts.

Rosemary (Rosmarinus officinalis) is a symbol of remembrance. Ingesting it is supposed to help one's memory. Visual stimuli can also trigger memories. T-shirt quilts are great for young adults who live away from home for the first time. A college student wouldn't be seen in a high school activity shirt on the university campus but that same shirt incorporated into a quilt is suddenly acceptable. For military family members or service-members themselves, a bag made from the uniform of their choice (ACU, BDU, DCU) is a visible reminder of proud service to our country.
