Sitting in the dark, there's a big wind storm and the power is out. I use to live the cabin life style with no  electricity but now I'm spoiled and I miss it when it's gone. Good grief, what a wimp I am! No beading by kerosene lanterns anymore. Hey, where is that kerosene lantern anyway? Out in the shed I guess. Candles and the light of the ever faithful laptop will work.  In honor of the black out I posting some pictures of past black velvet pieces...


  1. We had the awful wind last week, not as bad as Anchorage, but same day, and it striped the leaves and berries right off our Raspberry bushes, and all but destroyed my sugar pea vines. They are just hanging almost to the ground. However, we never lost our electricity. Hope all is well with you now.

  2. All your work is wonderful! You are a rel treasure!
