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

Portals


This is my portals quilt. I haven't had the time to quilt it yet. It is actually suppose to be done on Monday. Mine will obviously be late. My husband took the photo that I used to create this quilt. He was dismantling this barn and was on his scaffolding when he took the photo out of the second story window. Holy Hill was a bit more to the left but, I wanted to include it on my quilt. I took a drive out to Holy Hill to capture a photo of it to print on fabric to add to my hill. This quilt has been driving me crazy. But, finally it is to the point that I like it.. I hope to get some quilting done this weekend.
