The artists’ reception for the Des Moines Modern Quilt Guild Gallery Show this Sunday was a real treat! I walked in on the tail-end of all the quilters standing in a line in front of an audience and was immediately asked to speak about my quilt…yikes! But really, it was impressive that there was such a nice audience who all seemed genuinely interested in quilting, modern quilts and the pieces we had in the show. We had some nice conversations with the audience and each other! And I really have to say there were some lovely quilts in the show!! (more…)

I love Birthdays!

It’s a very special day today, my husband’s birthday!! I’ve been working like crazy on a quilt for him…that I can’t reveal yet, in case he’s reading this. (Happy Birthday, Dear!)

And yesterday I was working on a birthday party invitation that I’d like to share. It’s for a three year old girl! I had so much fun finding cute little monkeys and then creating a swirly pink jungle for them to swing around in! Graphic designer play time!!
