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

Cedarburg Quilt Show

So here I am in New Hampshire shopping at a stamp store and my cell phone rings.. It is my friend Chris.. I wasn't sure why she would call me while I was on vacation.. I thought something was wrong. But, that wasn't the case.. something was right!! SHe called to tell me that my quilt ( the one that I wasn't going to put in the show because I was going to be gone) had won a red ribbon. It took second place.. My first bed quilt.. It was made by me but, quilted by Gloria Anderson... I was shocked.. and started to do the happy dance.. I took this quilt to my quilt class where my dear friend Maggie Gordon said... why aren't you putting the in the show... and I said.. I'm going to be out of town.. Soooo she took it and put it in the show for me.. She is such a great person.. I love her to death.. I want to thank her publicly for being so insistent and taking my quilt to Cedarburg for the show.. So... that is my story.. I am home from a great art retreat in N.H...... I didn't want to come home.. I will post more about the trip later...
