Hop over to Kathy's site and say hi, OK? She's a trooper right now, recovering from Breast cancer treatment. I can not wait to get to her and give her a gentle hug.
Life hands us funny things sometimes. Often times, it's things we would have never thought we'd have to deal with. Be kind. Be grateful. Find the JOY in each day.
I set out for NY in 1994 to be an artist. I came to NYC with a suitcase, two boxes of paintings, and $200 in my pocket. (I do not recommend that to anyone) the $200 was gone in two days in NYC. I set about following my dream, being the creative person I am. And, although I've done that, my direction has certainly changed. The important part has been being open to following the creative path that presented itself to me. Had I not found BLOGS, and beautiful quilts, I may not have found the deep appreciation for where I've come from. Quilting, was always something we did, because, that's what we do in our family as MAKERS; We grow our food, we can our food, we make our quilts and clothes... it never dawned on me, that this would become my passion.
Now, I have a deep respect for where I've come from, and from where quilters have come from. Always look back, and forward for that matter, with respect!
Quilts are ROLLING in for the Child & Family Institute! THANK YOU!!!
