Good News


"It's a Ming Thing" 36" x 36"
Trunk E
Hoffman Challenge 2008

I'm very pleased about this. And I'm also pleased that the quilts of my on-line friends Debra Spincic and Laura Krasinski were chosen for the traveling collection, and that Liz from Kansas was a prize winner for her wonderful doll.

And--the green spots on the granite are gone, thanks to another application of stain-removing poultice! The poultice is actually lye, according to the family chemists, and the stone shop manager thought the green was copper that somehow came out in the stone after sealer was applied.

Oh Kay, I'm so happy for you. Especially because I remember when you were working on this...there were DAYS! ;) You really have to be beaming.

I loved watching you create this piece. It was interesting and seemed so difficult (to me) that I was amazed at the same time.

Ming Dynasty Love, *karendianne.
