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

My Hoffman Challenge Quilt is done!!!


I'm so excited.. I finished my HCQ. What a great experience again... I always learn something when I do these challenges. I'll be sending the quilt to California and what I am most interested in is what the judges have to say. I'm hoping it gets picked to travel but, since it is my first time I am just happy to be able to send it and received the comments on what I can do to improve my techniques. Soooo here is "Complete Serenity"
