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

Great News

I got an email the other day saying my Africa quilt will be another show. It will be in April in Mukwonago, Wisconsin. I am so thrilled... I knew when I was dreaming up this quilt that it might be one that I could show. Since it is only my 3rd quilt I am very happy.
We had a nice weekend. I had company for St. Pat's day and the rest of the weekend was spent doing family stuff. Now I need to get back to my art room ( studio?). We joined the YMCA a few weeks back and so I bought some shorts in the boys dept. They fit great but, are too long. Sooo I have to shorten them to length. It is so nice now that I can sew.
Something I need to think about this week. I want the week to go fast. This weekend is the Sun Prairie show and I can't wait to see my quilt actually hanging up at the show.....

Fun art

One more thing




THis is the quilt I finished last weekend. I took a class that was called,"in the style of Keiko Goke"....she does beautiful work. I really enjoyed this class and our teacher was so much fun. I took the class at Fabric Fusion in Brown Deer.

Excitement is in the Air

Hi all, I am patiently waiting to hear nothing from the Sun Prairie people having a quilt show this month.. The reason I don't want to hear from them means my quilt made it in the show. This will be my first one and I am soo excited. I wanted to start a blog so I could tell my friends and relatives what is going on with my family and myself. But, I want to share my love of art. I just finished a quilt last weekend and simply love how it turned out. It is my 4th artquilt that I have done. I have so much to do and so little time so I am going to cut this short and go and do some art...
