My cousin Judy in Sacramento, CA, Green Thumb extraordinaire, grows these beauties in her back yard. She asked if I wanted to showcase them (my word not hers) on Cactus Monday! OH YES!!! Thank you Judy, they are so pretty!
I had such a rush this Sunday.
You may have noticed that
visited my blog yesterday and left a comment!
This after I had given her credit for inspiring me to try some embroidery and beading
in some textile pieces, after reading her article in
Art Quilting Studio.
Again I will say here her work is awesome
and if you don't already know it go to her blog to see for yourself.
You will not be disappointed.
So, I was so stoked from hearing from the queen of stitches and beads
that I emailed her a huge thank you!
Lo and behold
she emailed me back.
And so it went
another back and forth
me asking questions
she answering them so generously!
I felt so taken under her wing, as a new artist,
by a very established one.
And to find her to be so accessible was just incredible.
So as I know Google alerts Susan when anyone writes about her
she will see this,
let me say one more time,
THANK YOU SUSAN~
What a spin you put on my Sunday!
