I'm one day behind, but determined to catch up this weekend. I'm enjoying reading some chapters and listening to others. The dialog is acted out in several voices. Hope you will join soon, if you haven't already.

I addition to my creative endeavors, my husband and I appear as Santa and Mrs. Claus in December. We visit senior centers, children's events, holiday bazaars, and individual homes. We donate some visits, and others we charge for. We offer discounts for non-profits and military. If you are interested, please call me on my cell at 714 742-4829.

Wow, Long Beach International Quilt Festival was quite a show. Of course, it was made much more exciting by having both a quilt and a photograph in the show. To have a look at the "Beneath the Surface" exhibit, go to: and look at their Saturday post. You will see my quilt in the second photo, and in the photo of Leslie riding on the creeper.

My photo finally made it to Long Beach. It was accepted last year for "The Eye of the Quilter" digital photo exhibit. It went first to Houston, then Chicago, then Long Beach. I wonder if they will give me the copy of the photo that was on display. It was submitted digitally by email. The funny thing about it, it has been hung upside down at all three shows. It is a photo that doesn't really matter, except I know the sunlight was coming from the top, not the bottom!

At Long Beach, I took Noriko Endo's class on silk naturescapes. It was so much fun. In the morning we dyed silk, and in the afternoon we created a small quilt from the silk we dyed. I can't post a photo, because my daughter took the quilt as soon as she saw it, and it wasn't even bound yet. I'll try to get it back long enough to take a picture.

The Race Is On

I feel like I have been in a quilting race lately. I need to post the final photos of the 10 quilts I helped the Pre-Kindergarten class make. I also need to post the photo of the quilt I made for their teacher, utilizing blocks the children had made.

As soon as the school projects were completed, I started on the challenge for Camp Watch-a-Patcher. I finished it one day before the deadline. I will post that photo after camp is over. I'm leaving for camp July 11 and returning July 15.

Then, next week will be the time to hang quilts at the International Quilt Festival in Long Beach. I'll probably get to see my Magnificent Menace quilt before the show opens Thursday evening. The book is now available with all the "Beneath the Surface" quilts. I feel out of my league to be featured with all the well-known quilt artists in the book and at the show. To see the book preview, go to:

Once the show is over, and I help take the quilts down, I will be able to start my "Whispers" quilt. More on that later.
