How happy am I?!!

This is my self portrait and the image I usually use when I post on blog-o-sphere.

Then there's an earlier iteration.

Now that I have the opportunity to serve as the SAQA/CT Co-Representative (with our fearless leader Kate Themal, I'm told that a real portrait is appropriate. I'd estimate that 75% of our CT membership would know me on sight. Just in case there is someone out there who would like to put a face with a name, here's the real deal.

I'm delighted to be in the position to work with Kate to promote art quilting in general and SAQA specifically in our little but, oh, so productive state. I look forward to meeting all of the CT members. You can always contact me via email,

Looking forward to our next Regional Meeting!


  1. So nice to see the real Diane. I do love your self-portrait, however!!

  2. Congratulations! I now know what The Other Diane looks like! I know you're going to be fantastic in your new position.


  3. Yes, my beautiful friend, congratulations on accepting this wonderful position and busting out from behind your cloth to show your wonderful face! What a great portrait - wish I could get the camera to like me as much as it does you...

  4. Congratulations, Diane! You are the perfect person to be co-rep with the very talented and hard-working Kate. I see great things for SAQA CT with the two of you representing the many great fiber artists in Connecticut.
    What a lovely portrait of you. You look as happy as the title of your blog posting suggests. I'm glad that those out there who know you only by your quilts can now put a face to the name.

  5. A great photo, Diane! I was not sure, with the title, just which of your recent stellar accomplishments you were so happy about! Congrats to you and SAQA/CT........I know you will do them proud!
