While on my website, take a little extra time to visit the gallery. I am now sharing my newest work, created in January. At the same time I have reorganized several albums to showcase my two solo exhibitions for 2012. Let me know what you think.

I have well over 100 names so far! Signing up to follow will not provide me with your name directly (as mentioned earlier – your privacy is protected). Either send me an email or leave a comment below to ensure I have your email or name on file.

  1. I am excited about the online quilt expo……it should be a great way to connect and to expand my sources of inspiration!

    Thanks for the info on the Online Quilt Expo. It is exciting to see this electronic age expand our creativity.


  3. I would like to sign on as a follower of your blog. I have been enjoying your newsletter since you were here to Kenora to teach…always inspiring. I have purchased several of your recommended books and am enjoying them too. I recently lucked into Quilted Planet for $2.63 + shipping! I also found 2 great books on embroidery at the Strand Bookstore in NYC a couple years ago. Not sure if your collection includes them. One is a stitch reference (The Stitches of Creative Embroidery by Jacqueline Enthoven) and the other features many different artists, with bio and background info as well as some of their work (Celebrating the Stitch by Barbara Lee Smith). I haven’t done a lot of embellishment…yet. But your work inspires me to take the leap.


    • Hi Linda, to sign on as a follower to my blog click on “About” at the top of the page and you will get to my home page. The button to “follow”is on the right hand side about half way down the page. Click on that and it will take you through a couple of steps.
      Thanks for the update on your book purchases. Regular book reviews will be part of the blog! Watch for them! “The Quilted Planet” for $ 2.63 is a true treasure! I have never found that book for less than $ 15. Congratulations! The other books are familiar to me and are great resources for embellishing. Thanks for sharing!

    I am going to miss your newsletters but will try to keep up with change and the times.
    I was so inspired with your TAC’s. I have done a few and love the process.

    Congratulations on being nominated, you are the best.

    Anna, as one who does not love change, I sadly say goodby to your newsletters. The blow is made easier because I am already receiving your blog posts in my email – lovely!

    And I add my thanks for telling us about the upcoming virtual quilt show. Looking forward to your interview.

    Hi, Anna,
    Your dawn photos were great. Our windows face north and south here in Silver Springs, Calgary. I love watching sunrises and sunsets and have told my husband if we ever move, I want a house that lets me see them without peering from the edges of the window!

    • Hello Pat,
      I met someone a little while ago who lived in Calgary for 10 years and returned to Saskatchewan because she missed the sunsets. when I am honest I must agree with her! Both sunsets and sunrises are spectacular here. As I am typing this the sun slowly inches her way over the hills across the lake. the sky is turning pale blue and orange – stunning!!!


  8. Hi Anna,
    I just signed up to follow your blog and I shall be pleased to do so . I will have to admit that I signed up to do that a while back but put in an incorrect email address. Guess this was a ‘senior moment” !

    I like how visual the blog is able to be.

    Hi Anna,
    Thanks for sharing your two essential art books. I’m going to try and find Art & Fear for my daughter; I think it might encourage her.
    Cheerio, Judy


  11. Thank YOU for signing up, Katina! I am so excited and grateful to be nominated. Nice to see you following the blog so faithfully.


  12. Thanks for sharing the info for the quilt expo in March. How exciting. I hope to be able to participate in as much as possible in those three days. Congrats on being nominated.
