Back for Real This Time

I know I keep saying I'm back and then disappearing but I really plan to be more active this time around. I have one of my lovely daughters helping me out with this place now so there are a lot of new and exciting things to come!

What I'm Working on These Days:

* Making and marketing my Miva Marks bookmarks

- If you live in the Cincinnati area, they can be purchased at Kennedy Heights Art Center or Eula Lifestyle Boutique

- They can also be purchased at my Etsy shop

* Creating a commissioned quilt for Kennedy Heights Art Center's 5th anniversary celebration (May 9th, 2009)

I've really enjoyed working on this project. I hope they like it!

* Working on a third Barack quilt

So as you can see, I'm pretty busy! I enjoy it none the less though.

Stay tuned to watch this place come alive!

Yet, another Obama quilt

Yet again I am embarking on the journey to create a third quilt in honor of our 44th president, Barack Obama. This one is for a new and exciting book that will published this summer. The book is titled The Journey of Hope in America: Art Quilts Inspired by President Barack Obama. This will be the third book that I am published in. I am very excited and grateful for this opportunity! My quilt, Unparallelled Journey will also be featured in the book.

The Journey of Hope in America: Art Quilts Inspired by President Barack Obama will capture this incredible cultural movement in a book featuring quilts and the inspiration behind them. The book will be a large, full-color, 200 page hardback, published by Paper Moon Publishing.

I hope to get started on it in the next few days. I just about have the concept worked out and hope to have all the fabrics select by Thursday. I will keep you posted.
