I was visiting this blog (check out the barbed wire stitch tutorial) when I saw that a book that two friends and I had sent some work to for consideration will be out June 1. Being very curious I went to Amazon and checked out the index, yep, Circles Journal. Put my name in "search" and hit the mother lode! Starting on page 56 are a couple of pages of our collaborative. Seeing how we never heard, even after numerous emails, anything about our submission we're all thrilled. It was Darlene's initiative that landed us in the book.

The upper right spread is the one that seems to have published in LK Ludwig's newest book. Good thing seeing how the top left is bloody awful. What was I thinking?

Last night while mixing up dye I decided to move from using hearts in my work to circles, oddly enough. So, last year a quilt was in a traveling QA exhibit and so far this year published. Not bad for someone who isn't overly productive.

Quote: A circle is the reflection of eternity. It has no beginning and it has no end - and if you put several circles over each other, then you get a spiral. Maynard James Keenan

Let me chime in with a big fat CONGRATULATIONS!!! You deserve this Gail, and your pages rock! I so admire you art and the way you experiment. I'm glad to see your Circle Journal pages posted here. It's great for me to revisit them.

I had a lot of fun in this collaboration. I only got stressed out after we sent it in. It was a long wait. I'm so glad we finally know we're in LK's book.
