- Laura Krasinski
- 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

Awake in the night..
Last night as I was trying to fall asleep this picture of a whimsical kitty came to mind.. I was thinking about Laura Wasilowski and her beautiful quilts when I thought... geeeezzz... I don't think she ever did a cat.. so I jumped out of bed and grabbed a pencil and some paper and drew my kitty on the paper... After a few drawings I got tired and went to bed. Knowing this morning exactly what I wanted to do I went downstairs and started to construct this kitty... I really love it... This is just the top.. Isn't she adorable? I think I will donate this quilt to Alzheimers Art Quilt Initiative... for the stay at home challenge...OK.. this is now 30 minutes since I posted this...Quilting Arts just posted a challenge called Quilting Arts Animal Challenge.... Well, you know my obsession with Cats.. I have always loved them.. This may just be a quilt for that challenge.. then if it comes home I will send it off to Ami... I guess I will have to see.. Maybe I will make another one... that is more fitting to me...Since this photo I have added more to this piece.. It needed more flowers etc... Keep in touch I hope to have it finished in the very near future..
