Blue Cosmos
Please stop in and visit me and this little quilt, Blue Cosmos, at the Artfabrik booth (#516) at the AQS show in Des Moines. I shall be all by my lonesome as Frieda is teaching most days while I sit in the booth. This means I shall have to talk to myself and twiddle my little thumbs.
And as we all know,there is nothing worse than a mumbling thumb twiddler.

Big Thread 42″ x 42″

Stitcher-tunities
As Frieda and I drive across the plains of Illinois to the AQS show in lovely Des Moines, I shall be working on the latest lyrics for Stitcher-tunities, Songs of the Stitcher. I shall be fleshing out that famous song, “Where Have All the Stitchers Gone?” and embarking on anew  little ditty tentatively called: “99 Needles”. Here’s a preview:
99 needles stuck in a quilt, 99 needles to stitch!
You take one down, you stitch it around,
You’ve got 98 needles to stitch in a quilt!

That should make Frieda happy.

Housing Department #17   15″ x 12″
500 Art Quilts
Like many of my fellow artists, I too will have a quilt in the book 500 Art Quilts published by Lark Books. Housing Department #17 is now in the hands of a collector, Alice from Texas. But I remember how much I enjoyed making it and am happy it will be memorialized in this new book due out in 2010.
