My good friend Shirley.....

has started her own blog.. Shirley is an exceptional art quilter and has taught classes all over the country. She has an online group that offers FREE, yes, you heard it, Free..... fiber art classes... If you are looking to learn something new, check out her blog and her group - there are people from all over the world.

Shirley and I have spent many happy (and messy) hours in my kitchen hand dying fabric. She has an exceptional sense of color and absolutely delights in seeing the colors emerge from our dying sessions....

Today is a quilting day for me. I have an absolutely huge, king size, customer quilt to do.... so it will take a couple of days... but I am excited..... I have been given the green light to "do what I want" and I have been envisioning all the wonderful patterns i want to put on this quilt....

Thanks for the kind words Deb.
I enjoyed every minute of our
'dyeing'and visiting together in your kitchen and the fun we had when we finally saw the results. They have added
so much to my work and each time I use one of the hand dyes I think of us having so much fun. I appreciate all the help you have given me in setting up my blog
- You are a dear friend and so talented. Shirley
