That post title got you didn't it - "Art Quilts and Gallstones"........what the????
Well life has been 'on hold' this week as hubby Larry had 4 days in hospital. The week started with 10 incredibly long frustrating hours in an emergency department that finally resulted in a transfer to a private hospital where 36 hours later he gave birth to one gallbladder and the largest stone I have ever seen, and believe me in my nursing career I have seen a few! This one was about 6-7cm long with a diameter of 11-12cm and must have taken up his whole gallbladder. Been growing a few years we suspect- whew!
So the real reason for my posting - I would like to introduce you to a quilting friend who has set up a blog. Along with the amazing quilts Raelene designs, she also collects miniature jugs and echidnas!
Check out her site; http://stitchandcollect.blogspot.com/
Her quilts are inspiring and she constantly challenges us with projects - I am afraid writing a book prevents me from ever getting anything done on time! Raelene will also be having her first solo exhibiton soon- see more on her site. And do check all her links at the top of her home page; 'Jugs' 'Echidnas' 'Scrapbook Quilts' 'Gallery'
