Well, I came in third in the recent quilt contest. The voting is part of the judging, but there is also a judge who awards a chunk of the points. The judge gave my quilt the second highest amount of points, but it wasn't enough to get me up to second place :-)
Our friend who was visiting and I made some birch bark projects yesterday. She made a basket and some stars. She practiced making the stars out of paper first. I made a basket and a hair thingy. My basket has some birch bark beads on it, and some woodburning. I made the hair thing with my sewing machine. The flower is free motion stitched even :-) The birch bark was a little too thick so it skipped a few stitches, but it mostly worked. Now it's back to making cards...I have a trip coming up so I need to get everyone stocked up before I go!

I am a homeschooling mom of three fun kids, who are now old enough that I have a little time to pursue my passion for sewing! After several years of making quilted cards and art quilts, I'm now designing kits and patterns. Some of them have even been in Keepsake Quilting! I teach classes at local quilt shops, and am starting to do more traveling and teaching. I also have many tutorials, including some on YouTube. I am blessed to live in Alaska where I am surrounded by the inspiration provided by the beauty of God's creation!
