Congratulations to the Winner!

Jamie, who has a sweet blog called Remnants, is the winner of Diana Trout's book.

I really want to thank all of you for commenting and telling us what it is you think you are needlessly afraid of. Diana has enjoyed reading the comments as well and I know from experience how wonderful the interaction between author and readers can be. 

Diana is doing something special and wonderful on her blog - in her own words:

Creative Revolution 
I'm not completely sure what kind of path this will take yet. For the moment, once a month, on or about the 15th, I will set out an idea. It could be anything: a simple journal entry, a recipe prompt, a nudge to be more creative when you get dressed in the morning. These nudges will be simple, 5-minute (or more, if you'd like). They will be something that can very easily be incorporated into your day.

I LOVE what she is doing. We are on the same crusade, Diana and I! Nothing makes us happier than watching people recognize and nurture their creativity. I think I'll join her and invite you to do the same. Head over there right now and see what the current prompt is. It's one I highly recommend.

New Shoe

Only one done so far.
I think I got a little carried away. My daughter called them psychedelic.
I love them anyway.

Click the tutorials link at the top of the page to read how to do them yourself.
Hopefully I'll get the other one done in time to wear it next week.
Can't wait to teach for the Burke Quilters Unlimited group in DC.
We'll be at the Artistic Artifacts Annex.
