There was a quilt at IQF, International Quilt Festival in Houston that has stayed on my mind.

It was not a prize winner, so I don’t have a professional picture of it, just my own.  I hope you can see it enough to appreciate it.

Not only is the piecing well thought out, but the quilting is genius. I admire it so much because I could simply never do something like that.  It is peaceful, yet engages the mind at the same time.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone.

I am so thankful I was able to retire from my day job last year and enter on a new life as full time artist. This is my 6th year of making art quilts.  I have so much to learn, yet I’ve gained such precious knowledge. I wish I could spend every minute of every day making and reading and looking and absorbing art and art quilts.

But much else in life calls to me. Food, cooking, family, the garden, and walks outside.

We watched The Theory of Everything last night.

Perhaps a theory of everything will one day bring the many joyful parts of my life together.
