A hero of mine CELEBRATED in Quilters Newletter!!!! WAHOO-Mary Lou!

What a GODWINK!!!!  I am up with the roosters this morning at my brother's ranch and look who is featured in the AUGUST/SEPTEMBER Quilter Newsletter and with one of my fav quilts (of course because of the boots and hat)- MARY LOU WEIDMAN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

CONGRATS MARY LOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!
WAHOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  The August September Quilters Newletter is exciting!!!!  A Barbie quilt and a article CELEBRATING my hero, Mary Lou Weidman!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  If you are not familiar with her, pls buy the magazine and fall in love with her then buy every book, a must for the creative juices!!!!  And...she is such a fabulous peer who has been so supportive of me as I embarked on the Story Quilt path.  I was so disappointed when I was unable to go to her retreat this past May and then....A fabulous friend emailed me that she would love to go to a retreat of hers someday....That was a GODWINK for sure!  I have told my husband that 2011's goal is to go a retreat of hers.  Anyone else want to make it a goal and we can finally hug one another in person?!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

How blessed we are that Mary Lou traded her paints in for fabric for her textile inspirations!!!!

What an awesome quilt! I"m not familiar with her, so I'll have to check her out. And what a great idea to get together at one of her retreats. Off to do a little research, and maybe 2011 will be the year that we meet in person!

great deal more attention. I'll probably be returning to read more, thanks for the info!
