Caps and Hats

Art on the Avenue is Oct. 7th

Come out to Del Ray's big arts and crafts event in Alexandria! All day Saturday, October 7th, from 10am to 6pm. I will be there, 2 blocks north of the Post Office, opposite side.

Booth # E49.

We were rained out last year, so it was held later in the year. This year we are back in early October.

I have been at work, creating painted caps, a new t-shirt design, and working on new scarves and Alexandria Christmas ornaments. I hope to see you there!

Little Pine’s Halloween

A children's Halloween story.

Nina writes: "This is a story I wrote when my children were young. The backstory is that when the trees turned colors in the fall, they looked to me as if they were dressing for a Halloween party and I turned that vision into a story about how the pine trees must have felt left out since they didn’t change color."

The cover has Nina's mosaic artwork.



Painted Caps and Tweed Hats

I used fabric dye and painted these caps in multiple colors. Hats started out yellow, blue, tan and white. Now, who knows the color!
