When I was a kid that was the thing we would say when the intended receipent walked in on a conversation about their gift. That meant turn around, you cannot hear this! So don't tell my Dad everyone, but I am working on a project for him for Christmas. He has played musical instruments since before I was born. In fact, if you look at my profile photo here on my blog, you will find a photo of my Dad and me with a couple of his instruments. Anyway, this is the start of his gift and I hope it works out as I planned it on paper. I will post another photo of the finished product soon since it IS part of his Christmas presents and I have to get busy to finish it! More soon, in the meantime, remember, shhh....Christmas Secrets!

Thank you to all my Creative Friends. I look forward to a new year of creating together. Sharing laughter, sharing techniques, encouragement and love with my sisters of the cloth!

I call them Journey Guides. Who will you choose to travel with? And they come with different characteristics. Joy, Fierceness and Grace are a few of the characteristics I attribute to them. They are reminders of what you may want more of in your life. Of this group, only the one on the far right, Skye, remains. The others have all found good homes. Currently you can find them at the Kennedy Heights Arts Center in the Holiday show, but after December is over, I will have them home again. If you are interested in more information, or think you are interested in bringing one home with you, post a comment and I will contact you.

My quilt guild is sad right now. We have lost Casey. I posted this pic on an earlier post when I was making my name tag for the art quilting and fiber art guild. She was a special woman and in the short time that I had the pleasure of knowing her, I could see she was a talented woman and strong. She had fought serious illness for many years, yet cancer did not have her, she had cancer. She had a lot more art to get out and nothing was going to stop that. She could always make a suggestion on a project that had you stumped. She was very curious and explored new techniques all the time and shared them with the group through workshops. She was always encouraging to those around her. She was just one of those people that made me glad I had the pleasure of knowing her. Talented, insightful, thoughtful, interested.....amazing. These are some of the words that come to mind when I think about Casey. We miss you Casey, but we will carry on and you will be in the middle of everything we do as a guild, because you will always be in our hearts.
