I try and learn some new type of art form every year during Baby Lux Design's off season. Last year I learned how to weld metal, This year I'm learning how to free motion quilt on my Mom's Gamill, Statler Stitcher long arm quilting machine. I'm pretty lucky to have access to not only a professional machine like this but the talent and knowledge of my Mom who has competed in quite a few quilt shows the past couple years.  Big RED is her name...she's super pretty and mighty capable! the first five minutes on the machine and I'm already...

I continue to be amazed at the beauty all around me here on the Island. I read a Labyrinth made entirely out of 25,000 pounds of found rocks, beach glass and trinkets from Bainbridge Island was finished this last summer by an Oregon artist by the name of Jeffrey Bale...and so it's been on my list for sometime to visit.
