January 12 2011 Quilting Newsletter


Hi everyone, thank you so much for your emails of concern for me and my families safety during the current flooding crisis here in my home town of Brisbane, Queensland Australia. Firstly, let me say we are fine, and in no danger of being affected by flooding.

But itís been terrifying, so much rain, so much water, so much heartache for so many people. We can only wait until the water recedes, and then get busy helping others to get their lives back to some semblance of normal.

Because of the terrible situation, Iíve been very distracted this week, and unable to settle to any craft work. So Iíve been cleaning!! And cleaning!! Everything is spick and span, and thank goodness the sun is shining today and I have a line full of towels drying in the wind and sun. Others are not so lucky and Iím sure you all will join me in saying our hearts goes out to all those that have been so terribly affected by this dreadful climate event.

Quilting with the Color Red is the title of the latest article I posted on Sunday. Itís part of my series on Colour Theory for Quilters. Itís all about the color red and how it affects us in our daily lives, and how itís best used in a quilt. Hereís the link: http://www.bellaonline.com/articles/art10168.asp


Well, I have some lovely little distractions for you this week. Hope you enjoy!
