Remember the Helen Reddy song, I am Woman? Well, I am Woman, I am Invicible, and I am tired !!! I am also a mom, a wife, a quilter, an artist, an author, a teacher, and someone with more ideas than I'll be able to tackle in several lifetimes (which is why I'm often tired). I began as a traditional quilter (and still love them), but now make pretty much only art quilts (until the boys need a go-to-college quilt). I write Design articles for Machine Quilting Unlimited magazine, have two articles on Bindings in the 2007 issues of Quilting Arts, and have a new book: Threadwork Unraveled--all about how to use thread on the surface of a quilt.
