Good News!

My issue of Fiber Arts magazine arrived in the mail today.  "Prairie Performance" and I are published in it.


















I'm pleased to be included in this publication that I've subscribed to since the first issue.  It would've been nice for it to have been a full length article, but this will suffice.





















There's more news!  The Robin's nest is empty.





















The last and the smallest of the chicks found its way down into the courtyard.



















One of the parent birds came in a few times with food.  A short time later it winged its way out the courtyard door to the stand of pine trees to join its siblings and parents.  We miss the noise and drama of watching this family of Robins.  In retrospect, it all seems to have happened so fast ... the building of the nest, the hatching of the eggs, the growth of the chicks.  In reality, it was a month.  Really, that was a short time!

Nice to be mentioned but you certainly deserve a whole article. Anybody who is able to move quilting from craft to art deserves recognition.

I have a stick and silk flower wreath over my door. Our wild birds raised two families in it while I worried about the condition of my new door. Happy to say, the chicks have flown away, I have cleaned the door, and we can use it again until next spring.

Congratulations on being in print. We have to take praise whatever size it comes in.

You go girl!
Yes, I would like a full article too.

This is an amazing piece of art.....how many hours do you have in it and did you start off with this project in mind?

I'm truly in awe of the effort this took.

Happy sewing

congrats! and to think that we knew you when . . . just kidding! Being published is great. the chicks have flown the nest already, my but they grow up fast. I don't know what's happening in the finch nest; the parents are busy but I haven't seen or heard anything that resembles birth yet. It must be time!
