Thanksgiving Gellis

As a family, when we gather together for Thanksgiving, we have begun a tradition of doing artsy projects together in the evening. This year was no exception. My little gals, all four of them, had heard me talk about  gelli printing and how much I enjoy the process. Of course they wanted to try it when we all got together. I packed my gelli plate and flew off to Indianapolis for a fun-filled weekend.

Here is a photo of one of the babes in action. See the right arm go? She's making a peace sign.

Such fun!

AAQI Quilts Sell at Houston

Alzheimer's Art Quilts Initiative sold a record $75,000 worth of quilts last week in Houston at the International Quilt Festival. 1597 quilts were sold, including three of my donations. I am a proud member of the $1,000 Promise group of quilters who have pledged to donate $1,000 in donations for their quilts. This $75,000 raised represents the largest amount of money ever raised at one time, and it exceeds last year's total by $13,000. This, of course, means more monies for Alzheimer's research. For more information on how you can bid on a quilt or donate, go to .

Here are my latest quilts sold at Houston.
