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

Finishing up a project one stitch at a time..



I finally finished my heart quilty for Leslie... Doing alittle hand stitching wasn't too hard and actually the sewing with the machine was even easier on me.. Speaking of stitches... mine will come out tomorrow and I should be good as new... I have more movement in my arm now just taking it slow...

I am brought to tears..


I belong to a wonderful group of people from my church. We get together everyother week at one of their houses and share God and our life with Jesus. We also share our hearts and souls. I am very thankful for this group of new found friends. When the doorbell rang today I thought it was just a delivery from UPS. But, I was mistaken. My "Group" sent me flowers. When I saw them I started to cry. They are beautiful.
I just want to thank all of you for thinking of me while I rot away here at home being bored to tears.. You have sent a sparkle of joy and spring to my house... Love you all...

Just a Taste of Art to Come

Getting thru a few days of doing nothing...


Hi all I had surgery on my left elbow on Friday.. Everything went well.. But, have you ever tried to do nothing when you feel good all over except your arm... I want to vacumm and dust and clean the house. I want to do art and sewing and anything but, just sit here. Trying to figure out what movie to watch takes me an hour.. I am not a big movie buff so I have to call all my friends to see what is good and what sucks.. And of course they all have different opinions..UGH!! It is making me crazy.!!!
But, it is peacful here. No kids and no hubby around to bug me. I'm still in my jammies and it is 1:00pm... I probably won'tr even get out of them today. Hooo Hummm.... I"m sick of surfing the web and if I go on ebay one more time I will be broke!!!
Actually I'm doing pretty well considering.. I'm finding alot to buy for other people...I did get some Wise Eyes.. LUella Doss fabric I have been collecting since before Christmas... Now to find a cool pattern or make one up for a quilt for my bed up north... Not much else new.. I'll be here for a few days yet. Hopefully by next weekend I can get some of my artwork done. I need to finish up a heart quilty I'm doing for a freind in a swap. And get my grab bag quilt packed up to go to it's new owner. I'll post a photo of it after she receives it.. I'm hanging in there. I guess that is all I can do.....
