The new Fall SAQA Journal has arrived and it is a beautiful issue. I only hope to have time to read it this week. Region member Heidi Zielinski has a piece titled "Capture the Sunrise" on page 20.
Heidi has been having a fantastic year winning awards at many shows, proving once again that persistence pays off-quite literally! Not only did her quilt "Red Sky" win 3rd Place in the Fiber Arts Category at the AQS Des Moines show, (with a cash prize) it was sold while at the Lowell Quilt Festival!
"Blackberries and Dandelions" will be going to Art Quilts XV:Needleplay in Chandler, Arizona. Three other pieces, including Capture the Sunrise,will be exhibited at the Spokane Quilt Show October 15-17. Heidi also has one piece juried into the PIQF October 14-17, in Santa Clara, California. Nice!
And finally . . .
Creative is a Verb
This is a new book due out in November by Patti Digh. Her prior book, Life is a Verb is based on her blog: www.37days.typepad.com. Both of her books give delightful and thought provoking examples of how to live mindfully, joyfully, and creativly with the days we have been given. I have two collages published in the new book, illustrating two essays and they will be on my blog: www.sheryleggleston.blogspot.com
