    [QUOTE=Krystyna;5814585]Yesterday I mentioned the issue of Quilting Arts with the interesting strip quilts. Well, last my decision to work in strips after the flood sort of mirroring her experience (except that she is famous and I am not ) so I just emailed her. Why? Who knows, but I did.

    First, you are famous. Fame is relative. I don't know that there are many on this board that doesn't know who you are, that makes you famous in my book!! I get Quilting Arts magazine delivered to my NOOK, it only costs like $2 an issue. I really like that magazine. Some day I am going to do some of the techniques they show in their. I hope to find time this summer to do some fabric dying using several different techniques outlined in that magazine. I actually tried the fabric made from your snippets. I need to tweek my technique, but for some aplications it is very unique.
    Also, e-mailling her is a great idea!!! If she isn't too stuffy, she will email you back, and who knows, it could be the beginning of a wonderful relationship.

    Most of Queensland and northern New South Wales is flooded again urgodschild. Monsoon season brought a downpour right up north so most of the places that flooded just on 2 years ago have again flooded, some worse this time around. It is heartbreaking to see some of the stories emerging - some people hadn't even recovered completely from the last flood, were still getting their homes built and fixed up, many were uninsured so they are at breaking point. The hardest to watch is the devastation of the Lockyer Valley which had the flash flood 2 years ago where many lives were lost. At least this year they didn't have the flash flood and many were able to evacuate but the mess left behind is unbelievable. And the animals caught up in both the floods and the fires.... the images we are seeing are so sad

    Come down to Victoria and there is still a couple of big bushfires raging in Central Vic. Thankfully the bushfires in Tasmania are out and the townships in the south are slowly trying to rebuild their lives. But we really can't get too complacent because our HOT weather hasn't come yet - from beginning Feb through to beginning March is our worst time.

    My partner Handi and I have communicated so now it's time to get going on a strippy or a stripey or both.
