When I was in my early teens I had a teacher who believed I should pursue a writing career. While I do think I am able to turn a phrase or two once in awhile and have a fairly prolific vocabulary, to be a writer requires a tremendous amount of desire and passion. A task I didn't seem to be able to wrap my heart and soul around.
Be that as it may, I am very happy to announce that at this ripe old age I have become a published writer - albeit not fiction. The April/May issue of Quilting Arts magazine will feature an article I penned (with Melanie's editorial assistance http://my-croft.blogspot.com/ - thank you, my friend!) that highlights a couple of my art quilts and outlines the painting technique I use to create many of my art quilts.
One never, ever knows what paths this life will take us down.
