I'm thrilled that At Rest in Arkansas is going to Material Voices: An Exhibition of Small Quilts at the Ayer Lofts Gallery, Lowell, MA. This is a juried exhibit and a partner with the Lowell Quilt Festival. The show runs from August 8 through August 26, 2012 with a reception on the 11th from 1 - 3 PM.

I'm also honored by have a piece in the upcoming SAQA traveling exhibition I'm Not Crazy. Juror Sue Reno selected just 20 pieces from a field of 128 created by 86 artists! The exhibit will be shown at Mancuso quilt shows from August 16, 2012 through May 5, 2013.

I so enjoy seeing what you do with vintage linens. I have a stack of them -- from tea cloths to dresser scarves to handkerchiefs to coasters and doilies, mainly from my mother, aunt and grandmothers...and have not yet been brave enough...

Congratulations! You have accomplished so much in such a short time (since Blues Chapel in Denton). So proud of you!
