FAB Collage - Pink Parasol

Pink Parasol

I pieced the plaid for the staircase.  It's a little "twee" for me, but I do like the hands that the gal presents herself in.

FAB Collage - Birds in your hair

Birds in your hair

This is the little piece that started it all.  A friend of mine had two significant people in his life die in a week.  I wanted to do something for him, so I fused snippets to some cloth and sent it to him as a sympathy "card".  The Chinese proverb was something like "There will always be birds in your hair, but you don't have to let them nest in it."

It was a little "giftee" for him, but it turned out to be a big inspiration for me!

FAB Collage - Stardust


Memories often inspire my work. As a child I had the mumps and couldn't go to the circus with the rest of the family.  My Dad brought home a stuffed monkey for me to play with. I still have that monkey in the Living Room, just to remind me that he loved me.

FAB Collage - Malevolent Music

Malevolent Music

I loved the design my partner came up with - the music symbol turning evil, I just had to use it!

FAB Collage - Samurai Spiral

Samurai Spiral (sold)

A friend of mine bought this because her ancestors were sword makers in Japan in ancient history.  She now lives in California and I bet it is hanging in one of her rooms still.  I sure hope so!
