We participated in the Hope, Indiana Bike Ride last weekend with another couple. The ride is through town and along country roads that go through rural farms. It was a beautiful day that made it very enjoyable. It is well organized, and begins with a pancake breakfast, then there are stops along the route with refreshments and entertainment. There was also a barbequed chicken lunch in the town center along with a blues band. The entry fee is bit more than some rides we have been on, but the proceeds after expenses go to the Hope Food Bank. There were a lot of people there that day (more than 1000), but their website hasn't posted the data or pictures for this year.
As a fabric collage artist, I enjoy working with vintage fabrics and mixed media elements to create art quilt collage pieces. Old fabrics, lace, buttons, sewing notions, ephemera and photographs are my favorite mediums to use.

I chose to name my creations Threads In Time by Pallas, not only to reflect the physical threads of the old textiles, but also to reflect the threads in time each piece travels in an imaginary journey. I added my name, Pallas, to personalize each piece that I create.
I live in Kentucky during the Summer and Fall and the rest of the year in California.
