Barb and Joan in Conference





A jpg of Barb and Joan in Conference has been sent to the American Craft Council. They plan to start blogging the results at the end of October. I will post a link when it happens.

Now I will go back to beading the fisher man and thinking about the next project.





 I have 2 things printed. One is my great aunt Kitty handing a silver plate to a jockey. I am thinking this would be cool as a vertical blind piece. I would have to have a reverse image printed but I will do a paper mockup to see if it would work. If it works you could reverse the panels so the jockey is accepting a plate from himself. Don't ask where these ideas come from.
 And this is Mama's Boy. It won't be that big but it will be fun to play with her dress. This is a flea market photo. They needed to be adopted!

American Craft Council



I love American Craft magazine. I get their e-blasts too and I was excited when I read of their latest project for their blog. If you responded with a jpeg of your work that would fit with the project they would send you photos from their archives. You make a piece of art from the photos and send them a jpeg of the work. To the left is the photo I received of Barbara Rockfeller and Joan Mondale.

I have scanned it and done some photoshop work, had it printed at Spoonflower and now I need to sew them down. I actually have the background quilted now and Barb and Joan ready to be stitched. I will post a link to the blog when it starts probably in early October.

In the meantime tomorrow I am giving a talk on my work to a seniors group in Berea, Ohio. Should be fun, I have a power point presentation and I am taking a selection of new and old pieces of work. And it's of my favorite subject, ME! Me, me, me, it's all about me, all of the time. ME!

Alright, calm down girl and get a grip. As my mother told me when I first got in Quilt National in 2007. Your head will be so BIG! Ha, not really. As I say, "I try my best." As we all should.
