Is there anyone out there who would like to support this artist for one year? Let me know, I work cheap...

I would love to take a year off and create, create, create.

Giveaways and Gallery part 2

Here we have another postcard for "Giveaways and Gallery" ~

I've just added some newer work to my gallery blog, so please do check it out!

The question for today:
"What's my favorite product to use in discharging fabrics?"

Be the first to answer correctly, and I'll send this beauty out to you...


Keep in touch...there's more to come ~

Need a hint? Look at my posts from May 2007!

Giveaways and Gallery

Announcing something new! I am in the process of photographing some of my most recent works that will be added to my gallery:
Julaine's Gallery of Artful Adventures

In the meantime, here's an opportunity for readers to receive one of my fiber postcards ~

Be the first person to answer this trivia question, and I'll send it out to you...ready? This one will take a little detective work.

"My quilt, "Goodnight, Irene" was juried into one of the "I Remember Mama" exhibits for IQF. Which year did it premiere in Houston...first, second, or third?"

Visit again...I'll have another postcard, and another question ~

Be sure to visit again this week, I'll be posting another postcard and will have another question!

Good luck!

A Reason to Get Up Earlier on Saturday Mornings

I found the listing! I guess the Chicago PBS station won't be airing it, but I did find it listed for the Madison station: Quilting Arts TV on Wisconsin Public Television

It airs this coming Saturday at 9:30 am. - I now have a reason to get up a bit earlier that day.

Hope you can find it on your local station -

Here we see Jason, the child with brave feet, willing to pose for a photo after the three of us danced around the Birch tree in our front yard to celebrate the birth of the new year...

We were barefoot - we laughed - we screamed in pain - then the numbness set in and Julaine almost peed her pants...

Had to have some proof of this family's new, new years' ritual and the little boy was the only one brave enough to go out there again! If you happen to click on the photo for a another look, you'll see that he appears to be wearing some strange eyeglasses from the 70's, but alas, it's really only Mom's attempt to remove the dreaded red eye.

It's a good thing (M.S. once said) that it wasn't a full moon, or we would have had to howl too, and do it naked. Oh well, there's always hope for 2009.
