2 (10 ounce) packages frozen corn kernals, thawed
1 cup of heavy cream
1 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons of granulated sugar
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
2 tablespoons butter
1 cup whole milk
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1/4 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese ( I have never added this to mine, please let me know if you do and how it tastes)
In a skillet ( I use a big deep pot because I double the recipe) over medium heat, combine the corn, cream, salt, sugar, pepper and butter. Whish together the milk and flour and stir into the corn mixture. Cook stirring over medium heat until the mixture is thickened and corn is cooked through. Remove from heat and stir in the Parmesan cheese until melted. Serve hot.

innocence was consumed by the dragon's fiery breath.
Satan calls forth his pawn's to raise up his army,
to wreak death and destruction.
Those who do the devil's work believing they will be rewarded,
beware, for you, devil's pawn, have been deceived by the prince of lies.
When you stand before GOD on the day of judgement
and watch as your name is struck from the Book of Life,
Satan's laughter forevermore
as he bornes you down to his domain to receive your just reward.
Everlasting to be consumed and reformed for all eternity
by the dragon's fiery breath.

I can't believe I found this a couple of days ago, guess it wanted to be published on my blog. I always wondered if I had a copy of it somewhere and even looked for it. Of course the depth of the feelings and emotions I felt is beyond describing. Never forget our eyes being opened when the innocent lives was lost from this tragic atrocity of our fellow man.

Fiber Art Fusion "Transformation" Exhibit
July 24-August 22
Opening Reception July 24 from 7-9pm
July 8th, 2008 Deborah Smith
Soaring to New Heights
Soaring to New Heights is a accumilation of the last couple of years of learning my new found art of Fibers.
I had no vision to what or how this piece would look and in the end the piece basically made itself. My art piece is made using applique in each section on a hand drawing with machine and hand stitching.
In some beliefs and myths the peacock's grandeur represents divinity, royalty, love and beauty. Peacocks are sacred to Sarasvati, goddess of wisdom and the arts, the peacocks distinctive tail markings is identified with eyes and likened to the stars, as well as to the solar symbols. In Buddhism it denotes compassionate watchfullness.
For myself the eyes represent watching and learning, to see is to always learn, once your vision is focused it is put away until needed to be used.
Some fiberartquilts made by my fellow artists:
Ann Quandee, "Colors of My Life", this was used on the invitational postcards that was sent out for the showing.
This one is made by Hellenne Vermillion and is titled "From Eternity to Here" http://vermillionart.blogspot.com/

"Colors" by Deborah Ann Smith
To pick up a pencil and draw with no design in mind,
trying to capture the meaning is so hard to find.
Truly to see hope come alive,
through the struggle we do so strive.
In our eyes sometimes we do fail,
those that love say we prevail.
Yes hope is alive,
we see it all the time,
the colors of you and I and all of mankind.
