This is a quilt I made a couple of years ago, when I was just beginning to explore the idea of Stained Glass Applique. It is named Arch of The Ages. I'm submitting it to a show that will hang in the Museum in Paducah Kentucky. Not sure when. Anyway, I thought you might enjoy seeing an earlier work.

I also just got back from teaching a Stained Glass Applique workshop for KHQS which is our state organization that meets in June each year. I didn't take any pictures, but there were 10 students and they were all so enthusiac and energetic it was a pleasure working with them. I also sold my patterns for the first time, at first to the students, but after I showed my Flights of Fancy at show and tell I got requests from the rest of the crowd, and sold all I had plus took some orders. Especially the butterflies seemed to catch everybodies imagination. I was so pleased and surprised.

I guess it is just my time, because I also won a scholarship to attend a workshop with Jane Sassaman in September. I was really keeping my fingers crossed and could not believe my luck when I won. I have admired her work for many years and feel sure that I will get a lot out of her workshop.

Geese crossing

The other day on my way to the bank, I came across a family of geese, crossing the road. They had traffic stopped for about a block. I didn't have my camera with me, so I came back later in the day to take this picture. The father was in the lead with the little ones inbetween him and the mother. They were taking their own sweet time crossing the road. So, cute!!!!!

Well now that I'm back on the Artful Quilters list as Serindipity 2 , I have to find other things to write about in order to keep up my blog. Up until now I've pretty much kept it as a quilting blog, but the process I use takes some time, so I don't always have two new things a month to show. Perhaps it will stretch my imagination to come up with some new ideas.

Here is a new Butterfly pattern. She is sort of whimisical. Don't you agree?
The price is the same as for Bridgette. $4.50 plus $1.35 postage. The is a little smaller than the other ones. Only about 22".

Hope you enjoy experimenting with her.
