A blog about my interests, which include crazy quilting and various and assorted other artsy pursuits and sometimes known to contain mumblings of a random nature.

Last in the series and Mumblings

I'd like to extend my thanks once again to those of you who sent their suggestions, help and well wishes regarding the issue I was having with my book.   It's off to the printers now and I'm a happy camper.   The air is no longer blue, no more tears are being shed, and life is good!

Here is the final piece of the spring-themed 
crazy quilted box....

Top of the crazy quilted box



There's just a couple of mumblings today....  First of all, Kathy Shaw has opened registrations for the first module of her Intermediate Crazy Quilting on-line class.  Registration is only open from March 29th to 31st, so hurry if you want to sign up!  Go HERE for additional information.  These are free classes and I can guarantee you will learn a lot!

Secondly....I don't normally discuss health issues on this blog, but I came across something that I thought I would share with you.  With the increased risk of melanoma (skin cancer) these days, it is important to know what it looks like and what to watch out for.  Early detection is the key so go HERE for further information. 

Today I have a quote from Ralph Waldo Emerson (a man I sincerely wish I could have met in person).... "Write it on your heart that every day is the best day of the year"

Very beautiful box MA! I came down with a horrible virus which kept me away from my computer for about a week and a half so I didn't know you had a book problem. I had to go back and read what happened and so glad you got such good advice! I'm sure your book will be splendid!
