Quilting Arts (!) AND it's my Birthday Day

Quilting Arts June/July 2012

It was such a treat to open my mailbox today.  My copy of Quilting Arts arrived.  I wrote an article, thanks to the Quilting Arts staff encouragement and assistance, and it is a thrill to see it in print.  I have been receiving emails from friends who saw the piece, but it wasn't until today that I got to see it "in the flesh".  AND, today is my birthday day!  What a nice present.

Then there is the additional thrill of appearing in the same issue as two (!) of my Sisters in Cloth buddies.  And we didn't realize it until the magazine had gone to press.  Carol Ludington is a master dyer! (She's also a gifted there is always something interesting from her at Show and Tell)

The other featured Sister is Martha Wolfe.  She was one of the very early members, and continued to participate in our challenges even after her family transferred to Florida.  Her work is simply amazing!  Two of her contributions to recent exhibitions are included in the is my all-time favorite (so far).  Tiger Lily is part of the Double Take exhibit that we hope still has "legs" and will travel to at least one more venue.  Fingers crossed.

Pretty great birthday gift!

  9. Having read this I thought it was really informative. I appreciate you finding the time and energy to put this article together.

    I once again find myself personally spending way too much time both reading and leaving comments.
    But so what, it was still worthwhile!
