At Long Last Blog

It turns out I'm not a very prolific blogger! Yet. . . It has been a busy year. My newest Harriet Truman/Loose Threads mystery came out in February and I jumped right into promoting it starting in January (I know! I did several shows before it was actually delivered).
In addition to the usual shows in Oregon and Washington, I went to the Arizona Quilt Guild Show in Mesa. Words can't describe how nice it was to be in eighty degree Arizona instead of forty-degrees-and-raining Oregon in early March.
The show was lovely and my books were well received. I was in the Craftsman's Touch book booth with Jack and Linne Lindquist which was very fun. 

In April I went to Paducah, Kentucky for the American Quilter Society show. It was as wonderful as I'd always imagined. I met a lot of friendly quilters and once again had fun with Jack and Linne. My own husband, Jack was able to come with me and he enjoyed driving to the Corvette Museum a few hours drive away. 

The show season has slowed, so now I'm fast at work on Book Six of Harriet's adventures.
My publisher (Zumaya Publications) is busy working on a web page scavenger hunt - I'll have more information on that soon. I can tell you that I'm busy making kitchen quilts (pot holders) that will be part of the prize package. Stay tuned . . . .
