Do you remember this Quilting Arts Magazine cover?
I fell in love with the cover the moment I saw it. I learned the peacock feather on the front was made by Susan Brubaker Knapp of Blue Moon River.
"Vanity" by Susan Brubaker Knapp
This is not the best photo...I snapped it on my IPhone last night....yes...last night. I am the new adoptive parent of this amazing work of art and I am just over the moon with joy.
"Rivers of Red" artist: Susan Brubaker Knapp of Blue Moon River
And this beauty will be hanging in my living room, properly, as of now it is just put over a piece of wood and propped into place. I've got to get the right hardware to hang it. I have always loved Susan's work and now I'm the proud adoptive parent of three of her pieces.
Do you have a favorite quilt or textile artist? Have you checked to see if they sell their work? You may be surprised to learn that many of the artists work that you love sell (are will to allow adoptions) their work.
A Hand Update
Instead of answering each of the kindest e-mails inquiring about the healing process of my hand, I thought I'd just do a little show and tell.
This happened on October 25, 2012
The Doctor put 5 screws and a metal plate into my right pinky finger and now I'm bionic!!! I just think it is the coolest science....being put back together. I'm still having physical therapy and it is not completely healed....but I'm certainly on the come back trail :)
The Flamingo Family is gathering food for their Thanksgiving Feast.
And all this time I thought they liked shrimp....silly me. Pumpkin just so happens to be my favorite too. I wonder if the Flamingos have a good pumpkin pie recipe?
