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.

Buttons a-poppin'

I know it's not nice to blow your own horn, or to brag (and really and truly I'm not doing either... much), but I have to show you this!!  

Some of you might remember that I did two 'secret' projects last year and that I wasn't allowed to post any pictures.  Some of you might remember that I announced what the first secret project was awhile ago, and if you'd like to refresh your memory, have a peek in my sidebar and look for the 2015 crazy quilt calendar that Pam Kellogg spearheaded.  My work was 'January' (and is also the piece you currently are seeing in my header on the blog).  To say I was over-the-moon-excited when Pam asked me to take part in the calendar was an understatement!!

Well, secret project number two involves the new 'Crazy Quilt Quarterly' magazine and if you're interested in seeing just what I'm yammering on about go HERE to Pam's blog and see her announcement (and a sneak peek) about the magazine.

Excitement reigns supreme!!

Today the quote is from Pete Goss.... "My parents taught me that I could do anything I wanted and I have always believed it to be true.  Add a clear idea of what inspires you, dedicate your energies to its pursuit and there is no knowing what you can achieve, particularly if others are inspired by your dream and offer their help"



Congratulations ... your work is beautiful x
