|Snowdrops at our front door on, 02 March, 2015. We have full blooms now :-)|
We have bare grass. NOT pretty grass, but bare except for zillions of twigs and branches that have fallen in the strong winds of the past winter. I say "past". I surely hope I am right!!
I submitted and had accepted, two pieces of work for the Grand National. It opens at Josef Schneider Haus, Kitchener, ON on 10 May 2015. The theme this year is Connections. The show runs until27 September. Hope some of you can see it!

A couple of days ago, the UPS man brought me my copies of Dr Sandra Sider's new book, 1000 Quilt Inspirations, published by Quarry Books. It is a bright and interesting collection of - you guessed it, 1000 images of quilts to inspire you, including six pieces of mine. Unfortunately, the six pieces do not represent what I REALLY do. They are more experimental, not serious but fun pieces. I hope you'll have a look at the book if you can and that you may be inspired!
I have opened a Flickr account and can be found on google - rtquilter on Flickr. Have a look. There are a LOT of fabulous photos on Flickr. I follow Carol L Harris, Darlene P Duncan and Bleu Nature on Flicker, all definitely worth a look.
I have been fooling around with filters on Photoshop and have prepared some photos to build quilts. Here are three. I will take my patterns to the printer man tomorrow and then have some serious dyeing to do!
