I have to apologize for neglecting my blog but I haven't had anything inspirational to write about until today. My nose has been to the grindstone preparing for next month's schedule which includes a trip to Superior Threads in St. George, UT to teach for their School of Threadology.the day after I get back from there I fly to Providence, RI to teach at the amazing MQX show and then a week later I hostess my first retreat of the year in McCloud. My organizational skills as well as my sense of humor definitely come into play here! I have to publicly thank my family for putting up with me these past few weeks and allowing themselves to be neglected!
I have featured Karen Azevedo Cabin Country Quilting a few times in the past. She is a long arm quilter who is a proud member of the Linen Ladies Club. When she shares her work it always takes my breath away and I LOVE to share her with you. Here is her letter to me this afternoon describing her beautiful quilt:
"It is a queen-size quilt where I used an old linen table topper that belonged to my Grandma and layered it with pink batiste and a lace edging. The top is white sateen and the back is a white tone-on-tone. I also put some flat ribbon lace on the back around the middle section and then just a few Swarovski crystals as well. I've named it "Grandma's Blush".
Thank you Karen for inspiring not only me but the rest of the world who follows this blog. Hugs, Cindy
