Yesterday I mailed off the four "Adventures in" books to C&T publishing that I created to demonstrate the ways that Kraft-Tex can be used. They want to display them at trade shows. I've been working with the C&T Creative Troupe for quite a while now and love getting to see and experiment with their new products before it hits the market. LOVED working with this product and have already ordered a bolt of it. If you are one of my Fiber Art Trader members
stay tuned in to hear more about Kraft-Tex! You can also check out Kraft-Tex at,

All for me????????????
Good news! Pike went for a recheck with the doggie neurologist yesterday and he said that all things considered she's doing well. The meds seem to be holding the seizures at bay so we are hopeful that the tumor in her brain is not growing too fast. Removal of it is out of the question at her age (14). So we cherish each day with her and just make sure that she is pain free. I call her my Sweet Baboo like Lucy called Charlie Brown.

While on vacation in the Outer Banks of N.C. I worked on the latest Quilting Arts Challenge. The theme is "Passages" and you know me, I have a thing for doors. This 10"x10"art quilt is titled "Night Flight". Allow me to share with you the story behind it. My mom passed away on 4-29-10 and I hadn't been able to bring myself to quilt anything to signify her passing until I heard of this challenge. Immediately I envisioned the quilt that I would create to honor her. My mom passed on a star filled, bright and clear night. On the drive home from the hospice center I looked into the sky and said, "what a great night for flying Mom", and my heart was at peace knowing that she was winging her way to Heaven. This quilt represents my mom as she departed this world and made her "Passage" to join all those who went before her. My mom was my best friend and until we are joined again there will always be a hole in my heart that no one else can fill. I feel that I have finally honored her coming and going with this piece. Rest in peace mom.
