    Shawna raises miniature horses and donkeys in New Mexico. She is an amazing woodburn artist. See: http://www.sagebrushminis.com/woodburn_art.htm
    If you look closely you'll find two she did for me. :wink:

    I believe these pieces would make neat quilts for the Linus Project! :D What do you think?

    There will be at least two pages of photos.

    wow, Karla-you really took me back here. The fabric in img 7168 is one that my grandmother used once. She did a trapunto with the birds (adults and babies) and stitched around all the trees, plants, etc and then framed the image when she finished. It hung in her den for years and I remember it well. Thanks for the memories!!! :-)

    Are you doing the chicken challenge in '09? There's one block that you might want to keep for the challenge or send on to someone who is doing it.

    Nice of your friend to share like that!

    Very nice. That should get the creative juices flowing. Can't wait to see them before you send them off.

    Wowe, lucky you Karla, those are great. I especially like the Koala, am sure some of our Aussie friends would like that one too!
