At the close of our beach trip, John and I met with Barb and her husband, Curt, for lunch in Oceanside. Barb and I became acquainted through email, and we set up a lunch date to meet. Barb wrote a book that I loved, "Elsie - The Arizona Adventures of a Frontier Teacher 1913 - 1916", and she is working on her second book about Elsie's days on Palomar Mountain - I'm looking forward to reading that one too. I was thrilled that she signed a copy of the book for me as my copy is on my Kindle - thank you Barb. Barb has an interesting website where she describes her book, and also includes interesting old photos. In addition to the link in this post, I have also included a link to her website on my sidebar. The book about Elsie can be purchased from her website as well as from Amazon - I highly recommend it! It is a wonderful glimpse into life 100 years ago through Elsie's diary and letters home.
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.
