“Eagles Soar” has been accepted to the Denver National show which will be May 1-4 in Denver. I’m shipping it out today.


My entries to the Kaw Valley Quilt Guild show both received Viewer’s choice awards in the wall quilts category. A First for “Snow Buddies”


and a Second for “Harrier Hunting”.


Thanks, everyone who voted, and thanks, MeaBernina for the $25.00 gift certificate!!

I’m hoping to finish the quilting on the new dogs quilt today or tomorrow, it seems to be taking forever, but as usual I am putting in a LOT of stitches! I have been spending quite a bit of time outside weeding and planting and am paying for it with spring allergy problems, which sap my energy.

Trying Again

Sunday, April 13th, 2014

The last two times I tried to post here, it didn’t work.¬† I’m trying again.¬† So……I’ll try to update what’s been happening and see if it works this time.

First Friday at the Topeka Art Guild revealed that “Jesse At The Lake” was awarded¬† an Honorable Mention in the judging.¬† This must be my month for HMs.¬† I’m always happy to get any recognition in an exhibit intended predominately for fine art!¬† I forgot to take my camera to get a photo of it hanging there but it has a good location and looks nice. Stop in if you are in the area ( Fairlawn Mall ) to see the show, “Journey Through Topeka” which will be up til the end of May.

Last weekend was the Kaw Valley Quilt Guild show in Lawrence which was good as always.¬† I entered “Snow Buddies” and “Harrier Hunting” and worked there Sunday afternoon, receiving many compliments. Judging there is by Viewer’s Choice and the results will be announced at the next guild meeting.

I’m still quilting on the dogs quilt, it came to a halt when I ran out of two necessary threads and had to go to town yesterday to look for more; fortunately I found exactly what I needed and will be able to carry on.¬† I have been spending quite a bit of time this past week outside pruning and weeding, planting and fertilizing and generally cleaning things up.¬† Keep hoping for predicted rain to materialize but so far it’s bypassing us and I have had to water things.

OK–crossing my fingers, and hitting “Publish”……
