Is there anything else you'd like other members of Stitchin' Fingers to know about you? Please feel free to tell us a little bit about yourself by way of introduction.
I love to stitch more than I am ever on the computer will try to participate.
My 1st and probably only Crazy quilt was one of the 40 finalist in the 100,000 Quilting Challenge in 2007.
Thank you for your kind words. I have learnt so much since I began learning Japanese Embroidery and I love the designs and techniques. I am looking forward to seeing some of your goldwork and particularly your tambour work. What a wonderful experience Paris must have been, not to mention the lessons :)
Hi Shirlee! I have been a HUGE fan of yours and you didn't even know it! Ever since Maureen would publish her newsletters...I was always looking for the tips from you or pictures of your work.
I saw your quilt in the $100,000 magazine but there were no close ups (unfortunately) which left me a bit sad. I've been searching for you "online" thinking you might have a Flickr account or something....When Maureen appeared her, I was excited and asked about you! Come on over to my page and check out my blog and my flickr pics....so glad you're here! And I can't wait to see what you've been up to all these years!
