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

UGHHH I'm so behind...





I wanted to share with you what my wonderful sister gave to me for my birthday... first off she gave me a gift card for Peace and Quiet.. that is what I told her I wanted.. so Off to get a massage or facial ( when I have a free moment ): ) And she also bought me a very useful book.. it is called " Diseases and Problems of OLD AGE..." I told her that I new she had already read it because she has had all of these diseases and problems at one time or another.... We laughed... She also bought me some very cool fabrics.. They are called Bali Watercolor wraps.. by Hoffman.. there are 4 tubes with 20 colors in the tubes and 2 7x7 inch squares of each.. here are all of them... So I have 120 7x7 squares of the hoffman fabrics to use for ?????? and for my McKenna Ryan patterns when I get some more... Very beautiful colors... I just love them... Thanks sis...you are the best..
Today I had to take off early to take my machine in... I apparently screwed it up...literally the bobbin tension.. it is working great now and I promised Brad at Franks sewing center that I would never touch the bobbin tension again!!! Oh was I P.Oed over the weekend when I was trying to free motion quilt and all I had on the back was birds nests... I 've had that problem before.. now I know why... Thanks Brad!!!
I'm anticipating this weekend .....STATE FAIR!! I will be going Thurs and Friday this week... what fun!!! I will visit my quilt and have a few beers.. and listen to Andrea and the Mods...they are a great band.. Well, that is all for now... Toodles......

All that fabric Laura we won't hear from you for months now.
Why don't you do what I did and get a spare bobbin case--then you can keep one for normal sewing and the other one you can play with--saves a lot of heartache.

What a great sister! What a lucky girl!
Seeing your "Balls in Space" quilt has given me the courage to continue with my "Aliens Tea Party" quilt that I have been working on. Thanks so much!
