Artist and Belief Statement

I believe all people have the need and ability to create. This includes visual arts, music making, cooking, carpentry, welding..and more. I encourage this life-enhancing expression that brings wholeness, physically, emotionally and spiritually to everyone's life.

Items for Bucket List

Have you seen the movie the Bucket List? I guess it was about 2 - 3 years ago. It is worth viewing again. But here are some of my items that need to be mentioned on my bucket list. These are things I have talked about with family and or just kept to myself.

Visit my husband's families' origins in the Ukraine
take the VIA Rail across Canada
Put my feet in the water of the Pacific Ocean - American and Canadian waters
Put my feet in the water of the Atlantic Ocean - Canadian waters
Take a quilting class from Laura Wasilowski
Take a quilting class from Carol Taylor
Hike the Appalachian Trail
Visit Relatives in Arizona and Alabama
Learn how to be a Henna Artist
Teach Zentangling
Hold my grandchild (I hope I get at least 1)

Well that's a good start. In the next year I hope to expand my art quilting. That would be the main career goal for 2010.
Personally - I want to experience more "presence."

Welcome to my Blog, Bloomin' Quilts. This is also the name for my Quilting company, Bloomin' Quilts. and while I will post mainly quilt related info, it is difficult for me to separate my quilting from what happens in my head and in my life.

Please join me as I grow and learn, and hopefully we can learn from each other.

Happy Quilting.
