Take time to Ponder, think, LOOK, and act (as an artist-it's quite easy really....
The wonderful red and white quilt is made for this month. I am not sure who did this as it was sent to me by a cousin who knew I would love it and I do. How inspiring!
The chicken is by Liz from the Washington State coast-she did a story quilt about canning and this chicken was a part of that quilt.
Everyone who knows me knows I love birds and flowers...one reason is that they are so easy to create in quilts and in simple ways...we all smile with birds and flowers
The sneakers were at Zappos online- I am so hooked on Zappos and usually order 3 or four pair of sneakers to last me a year...I sense my friend wish I had a "good" and "feminine" pair of shoes....I guess I am too old or too lazy....do those ballet shoes make your feet hurt? They look like it. Mel did give me some ballet slippers I love but I don't dance in them or teach in them or run through airports in them....
The photo of the three babes is Mel McFarland, Sandy Thompson and me at Road to California. Lots of fun to be together and enjoy the cow quilts and the beauty of the other lovely things hanging. We all met at Asilomar in the story quilt class and I am hoping YOU will consider taking a story quilt class somewhere to tell the world about YOU for many years to come. What are you leaving as a testiment to your life?
