Flower Power Cover

Mary Lou is coming ( to teach a three day class at the LaConnor Quilt Museum and my dear friend Sue and I are soooooo excited to work with such a fabulously fun and creative teacher!!!!!

 Sue might work on a self portrait so...

I have packed a little surprise for her. Some "authentic inspiration" for a gal working hard to develop her true self.

"BLOOM" is the theme of my quilt. I am going to work on some Hoochy Mama/Mary Lou style flowers (liberated and without a pattern).


Mother Nature at her finest

"The Earth laughs in flowers" - Ralph Waldo Emerson


      To keep the fun and laughter going, I found a great tee shirt artist at to make Sue and I tee shirts to wear professing our love for her! Stay tuned for more Mary Lounie adventures.

   I am pretty confident it's going to be a great three days, but if needed, I found some luck on the driveway this morning!


  1. Ohhhh, I'm so envious of you two! You're bound to have a great time with Mary Lou and make some awesome quilts! I think I need to buy a lotto ticket. And, Oh, I hope that it is a winner! Then, I'll be up there to join you, or at least watch!

  2. Have a great time, I too am a big Mary Lou fan!

  3. You will have a great time with ML. She has a million stories. I love her quilts. Have you participated in any of her swaps?

  4. I don't know who the guy above is..oh well..takes all kinds. I did report abuse to Blogger....Anyways, yes, I participated in her owl swap. Very cute! She always attracts fun and happy ladies!!!!

  5. I think you should delete his comment! there should be a little garbage can next to his comment--click it and then remove entirely.
    anyway, jealousy abounds! I swore I would spend my tax return on a Mary Lou retreat but my kid needed braces--ugh! Hey, wonky teeth? I like wonky! But noooooo....
    I hope you have a great time--please posts pics when you're done!!
