Thank Fullness

I wish that I could thank each one of you who takes the time to look at my blog personally. This is no special occasion day - no commemorative number of "hits" or any anniversary. Just an opportunity to thank you all. When I began blogging I had no idea if it would appeal to me - let alone to anyone else! I have been blessed with friends (both local and cyber) and family that are supportive and encouraging. I need that - as I suppose we all do now and then ! The comments you send are such wonderful inspirations for me to do more, play more, create more and post more ! I get such great suggestions from some of you !

The 2003 journal quilt above is one of my first thread painting efforts - as well as one of my first drawing efforts. Participation in the Journal Quilt Project has been such an amazing opportunity for me to reach out and try new things. Some of you are going to see the wonderful work in this final year of the project when you are in Houston - and I hope that you will take lots of photos to share ! This year I submitted another painted piece- and I think I see some improvement! I will always be grateful to Karey Bresenhan for spear heading this amazing project. Having work selected for the Journal Quilt Project Book was an honor and when January rolls around this year I will miss having the chance to "sign up" for another year of creative fun and growth.

It is always a pleasure to see your art in ( or at??) your blog!

I "hit" your blog almost daily. Hoping to catch a glimpse of what you're up to. I have SO much to learn.
