More (and more) April Showers
Hello Friend!
The rain just keeps coming! Don't get me wrong - I love living in Oregon - but wow!
The rain has given me more time than usual to work on some projects - one of which I'll share with you in just a minute.
It's also given me time to watch some of my favorite Saturday morning quilting and sewing shows. A perfect way to spend a Saturday morning! One special art quilt featured on Quilting Arts TV caught my eye and I knew I had to share it with you.
Also - I've included a question for you at the end of the newsletter I'd love to know your answer!

I don’t often get to spend a Saturday morning sewing and watching my favorite sewing shows on PBS/OPB but that was the case a couple of weeks ago. I love to watch Quilting Arts TV and one segment made me stop what I was doing and pay close attention. 
Fiber artist Lea McComas was interviewed about her quilt titled Women’s Work. I was captivated by the concept and her execution of this complex idea.

This certainly doesn't look like a quilt! The first sewing project I ever did was to slipcover some cushions for the outdoor furniture on my grandparent's front porch. Here I am - at it again - all these years later. 
Why am I making fitted slipcovers? Read more …

you can't live without - and why?
