    As Penny would say ... "Holy crap on a cracker!"
    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.

    beautiful but I wouldn't get one done in my life time , hands aren't steady enough for small items. But love these and view and wish..
    Freedom is costly and quilting keeps us busy...

    Thank you so much for sharing. Makes me sad that I lived in Houston for 20 years and never heard of her. Of course, I wasn't into quilting then. Her work is amazing. If she doesn't have a book or dvd, I hope she does some day.

    When it seems like the world is falling to pieces remember that the pieces are falling into place. We are nearing closer to the End Times.

    I have never seen such beautiful detail in a quilt. It would take hours to really see all the special work that went into it.
    When a dying man asked his pastor "How long does it take to die?" his pastor's heartfelt reply was "A lifetime." Live life to the fullest, but stop now and then to enjoy the sunset.

    Beautiful work. I don't think my fingers and eyes are up to the tiny details.

    oh my goooodness! what everybody else said and then some...I love that she hand embroidered the house she grew up in.
    It's amazing that her son of 16, could and would do all that with her. It will have it's own place in a museum some day.
    Gooolly and shazam!
    It is a blessing, to be a blessing !
