Win Laura Wasilowski’s new book


Laura Wasilowski has a new book! Fanciful Stitches, Colorful Quilts contains 11 whimsical fused art quilt projects… I got a sneak peek, and I’m going to review the book and give away a copy (courtesy of C&T Publishing) on May 2. Want more chances to win? Just check in on each of the bloggers on the dates listed below:


REMEMBER TO COME BACK ON MAY 2 to read the review and leave a comment on the May 2 post for a chance to win!
THE FINE PRINT: With apologies to my readers in other countries: I’m sorry, but this giveaway is for U.S. residents only.

Such a sweet gift


Each year, the members of Fiber Art Options (a Charlotte area group of fiber artists) pull names out of a hat and make a small gift for that person. Today, I received this lovely piece from my friend Debbie Langsam. It is a photo of me with my mother in 1964, altered in Photoshop and printed on fabric, then quilted. The poem is a favorite of both my mother and me. You can see the original photo and read the poem in my earlier post

Debbie is such a kind and generous person, and I am deeply touched by this very personal gift. Thank you so much, Debbie!

P.S. Debbie and her husband Joal run Barking Dog Chocolatiers, and donate all the profits of their delicious chocolates to charity. So if your sweet tooth is calling, consider an order! I can tell you from experience that you won’t be sorry.
