About Me

My photo
I was 53 in June. I feel like I'm 30. I live in Cold Cold Wisconsin. But, I love it here.. I found fabric and quilting about 8 years ago.. I fell in love with it.. I also enjoy paper art.. I'm not sure how I kept my sanity before I started doing art. I found rubber stamps about 10 years ago and have gone on to anything and everything.. I have been blessed with creative talents and love to express myself in art. I have 2 children .. one girl who is 15 and a boy who is 17. My husband and I love to hunt,canoe and just enjoy the outdoors together.. We all love the outdoors and go up to northern Wisconsin as often as possible. I'm a 14 year breast cancer survivor.. you can view more of my art at http://laurakrasinskiquilts.blogspot.com www.picturetrail.com/barngirl or my teaching, lecture and vending schedule here http://laurakrasinskisartontherun.blogspot.com

Poem Challenge

I belong to the Milwaukee Art Quilters. We had a challenge to each bring a poem and each of us would pick one out of the hat and make a quilt to represent the poem. THis is the quilt I came up with for a poem that I was given. Here is the poem:

Between the Showers

Between the showers I went my way,
THe glistening street was bright with flowers,
It seemd that March had turned to May
Between the showers

Above the shinning roofs and towers
The blue broke forth athwart the grey
Birds caroled in their leafless bowers

Hither and thither, swift and gay,
the people chased the changeful hours;
And you, you passed and smiled that day,
Between the Showers

Grab Bag Swap

THis is the quilt I made for the grab bag swap with the QuiltArt list. This was really fun.
9/5/2006... I just found out that this quilt will be in a traveling show with 40 of the other quilts that were picked. This is so exciting for me!!! I'm on cloud nine and I never want to come down. I want to publicly thank Tomme for all her hard work doing this grab bag swap. She is incredible...
