Dick and I have made some big changes for the year to come!! We are downsizing to free us up to do the things we have always wanted to do ..... that is.... free to travel, spend more time together, follow His lead for new adventures, no more retail store after 27 years, more time with kids, but still MORE ART and probably some sewing classes for girls ..... that is a dream right now ..... but the ART won't stop, it will be here on the blog as soon as we finish remodeling our NEW/OLD smaller home about 20 miles away. SO STAY TUNED ... we'll be having a big sale and beautiful house and property SALE in the SUMMER!! MORE FREEDOM ON IT'S WAY!!! WooHoo!!! And THANKS for all your support the last twenty seven years in my shop!!!

I LOVE this Old Quilt!

I am working on some new art but not ready to post it....so I will post some recent pictures of a favorite old quilt that hangs in my stair well. I bought it about twenty years ago in the college town where my son was going to school.....and it was so exciting because the lady at the antique shop said she had bought it years ago in Round Top!!...but couldn't remember from who. I was so thrilled to get a bargain and to bring it back home where it belongs. It is tiny squares, I think called postage stamp...? Look at the beautiful stitching done in a shell pattern...! Anyway, wouldn't this make a fabulous paper printed for journaling or art? I think I will print it for myself....a few different sheets.....if you are interested email me and I'll quote you a price for the printing...or per sheet. ENJOY!!!
