"It Was a Very Good Year"



I seem to be quoting Old Blue Eyes a lot lately . . .
My thanks to all of you who took the time to leave some great advice on my pre-Christmas blog post.  You reminded me of the important things to remember during the holiday season: letting go a bit, focusing on family and friends, remembering to breathe in and out.  Sometimes we just need to hear someone else tell us what we know to be true.
It really has been a very good year, and it was made even better by some recent exciting news: one of my quilts, "Dizzy," was accepted by Lark Books to be included in their upcoming publication, "500 Art Quilts," due out in the spring of 2010.  What a thrill!  I am so honored to have this little art quilt selected by juror Karey Bresenhan for inclusion in this collection.
Thanks you all for sharing in my joyful news -- and here's to a most creative 2010.

Diane,

Congratulations! Dizzy is a fabulous quilt and well deserving of this honor. Black and white quilts with color are one of my favorites! They are quite graphic and just appealing. In fact, yesterday I began another black and white quilt.
