welcoming one and all!
Hello! Bonjour! a blessed day to everyone! Here's my first-ever post to a brand-new BLOG, thanks to my dear sister-friend, Miss Willer Fuller, RN, who spent almost three of seven hours with me Monday, the 14th, setting me up and showing me the ropes. Still don't know how to make my digicam work, but will get help from Peter, my tall son. (Willa just ran out of time!) +++ Look for me to have an irregular potpourri of things for you, including (but certainly not limited to) a lot of pix. of Crazywork items -- finished and in progress, room-organization ideas and containers that work and don't work, other people's stuff, needlework books I love, things I've admired, and just Sources for the stuff we love and need. I'll ask for a lot of opinions about fabric compatibility, prints and colors, as I try to stretch my creative aspect. I need LOTS of encouragement!, 'cause I'm not one of those very confident craftswomen who always know what's really brilliant UNTIL I see it in someone else's work. THEN I know! Like, Sunday, when Mary Anne Griffin brought her Masterpiece garments to show us in the hotel lobby during Crazy Quilt Society's Annual Retreat. Like, when Miss Martha Green brought her two incomparable Crazyquilts to Lynn Tolles's room at the hotel for me to droooool on & try to comprehend. (Please visit Karen South's wonderful journal of her Retreat experience at http://karensouth.blogspot.com/.) Like, when Miss Lisa Caryl let several overwhelmed CQers see five of her amazing Embellished Boxes -- highly ornamental and exquisitely encrusted (www.picturetrail.com/quiltygurl). Everyone wanted them all! Lovely, lovely items, too gorgeous for mere words (even for someone as wordy as I). +++ Will go into Illustrator Mode now, dear ones. Am on a commission for Miss Valerie Bothell at The Pink Bunny (http://www.valeriebothell.com/) which needs to be finished before Saturday. Must also try to upload the only photo I have of my own ageing self to make the Profile more exciting. Wish me a blessing! I wish a major blessing on your Summer and on YOU. . . . .
