90-Day Challenge Feature is Indigo Luna

Rachel Kitterman is a 5th generation Oregonian. She says, "This lush and verdant environment is in my blood. I grew up in a valley surrounded by tree-covered hills and blessed with a great deal of rain. I memorized the names of flowers as a child and picked basketsful of mushrooms in the damp woods and studied moss and built forts inside of blackberry thickets. After traveling the United States, I can’t imagine living anywhere else."

Rachel's work has appeared on the cover of the 2005 Quilting Arts Calender, in Artella Magazine, Art/Quilt Magazine, Fiberarts Design Book 6, as well as many juried shows.

Rachel has so many different and wonderful items in her shop. There are beautiful art quilts, mixed media paintings, colored pencil mandalas, jewelry, knitted and crocheted items and the darling pop-up card cases. Go check it out at http://indigoluna.etsy.com/ .

After reading Rachel's 100 Things About Myself in her blog, Indigo Luna and married to a native Oregonian myself, and having heard throughout my married life from my mother-in-law so many of the same thoughts expressed, I marvel at the fact that she also would never choose to live anywhere else. It is almost like it is its own sub-culture, like motorcycle riders or cowboys or parents or sailors or quilters. Natives somehow absorb Oregon and become uniquely Oregononian. May be something about the color green?
