Back from Houston

I have returned from a fabulous four days at the International Quilt Festival. It was truly a thrill to have two pieces in the juried show this year. The first was my pirate quilt called "'Twas Me First Day With Me Hook". It is based on the favorite joke about a pirate walking into a bar and the bartender asking him how he lost his eye.

The second piece is called "Canna from Ellis Hollow" and is based on a photo by Craig Cramer of the Ellis Hollow blog and is used with his permission.

Thank you to Kathy Lincoln for taking these pictures of me with my quilts.

Awesome, awesome, awesome!! I had no idea you had quilts in the show! Congratulations!!! I'm so excited for you, even if it's a bit after the fact. Fantastic!

I was at PIQF on Friday, and saw several of your pieces. I took some pictures, so it's high time I sent them along.

Again, Congratulations!!!

Hey Lisa! I finally got a chance to see your wonderful Canna but didn't get to see your pirate in person.:-( It was great to see you in person too! So glad you got Beth's piece from Art Now. It looks like a great piece.
