One of the pleasures of having an Open Studio is that people get to see an abundance of work on the walls, be surrounded by it, and have creative ideas percolating.  A visitor saw my Log Cabin Quilt Panel(below) and asked if I could make a mirror with the same motif.  With Stratoz’s trusty drafting skills, he drew a series of squares around the perimeter.

These glass tiles are from Italy, with swirled and mottled color.  My work table was a mountain of glass as I sorted tiles by hue and intensity.  These tiles teach me to look closely, to appreciate differences that at not discernible at first.
