Happy Easter!!

Happy Easter!! I had a wonderful time the end of March helping my daughter have her baby in Wisconsin. What an awesome experience to share with her as 1.2 of her coach team. He is a beautiful baby boy named Dylan E Hansrote. Just stole my heart, can’t wait to go back for a visit. And there is always a baby quilt in the making. I am working hard the next few weeks and playing hard too. A trip to our family houseboat on Trinity Lake to celebrate my birthday. Then home for a few days to do some stitched paintings to sell at Alegre Retreat. The next weekend a trip to Chico California for my nephews wedding and mini family reunion. Then home back for a few days to pack all my stuff and fly off to Gateway Canyons for the 10th anniversary of Alegre Retreat!! so excited about that. It is a great retreat filled with new and long time friends, inspiration all around, Excellent food and informative class and lectures to learn more about Alegre Retreat go to www.alegreretreat.com. Maybe you would like to join us one year. Always in April. Spring is so beautiful there.

The Rose Quilt Myster by Mark Pasquini

A Steve Walsh Mystery “The Rose Quilt Mystery” by Mark Pasquini

Retail: $14.95


It is the 1920s, in the world of quilting circles. A wealthy woman and prominent local quilter is murdered with a pair of quilting shears during the preparations for a local flower show, leaving a dying clue on the lap quilt she and the executive committee are making as the first prize. Unfortunately, the clue could point to anyone on the committee or any of her three adopted children… Steve Walsh is called to investigate, helped and hindered at every turn by the late quilter’s flapper daughter and by the scrappy reporter Julie Boroni. Will Steve catch the murderer? Will he remain a bachelor or will he finally settle down (and with whom)? A classic murder mystery with a quilty twist, this historical fiction novel is sure to grab every quilter’s imagination and make them long for a bygone era.

Enjoying The Holiday

I hope all are enjoying the holiday season. We had a super thanksgiving with good food and good friends and family. And Christmas this year will be especially bright with grandchildren and good friends in attendance. I hope to spend some of my down teaching time working in my studio and a few new quilts and painting in my newly updated painting studio. More lights and a few shelves was all it took to entice me into painting more in these darker and wetter days of winter!
