This blog will not be receiving much attention from me for awhile.  My artistic life has been shoved to the back burner by a family emergency.  My son Devin has cancer.  I will be up in Tacoma, WA. for an indefinite period to help with my 9 month old granddaughter while his wife works and he undergoes tests and whatever other ugliness is necessary for him to heal.  This prayer flag will go with me.

Seatbelt Quilts

As a short person, I have yet to find a seatbelt that doesn't cut right across my neck. (I  hate to think what would happen if the belt actually had to perform in an accident.)  Purchased sheepskin covers are wonderful in winter, but not so comfy in summer, and my 6'2" husband hates them.  My solution is these seatbelt quilts, which are a fun way to use up scraps of practice quilting.  Even if shortness isn't your problem, I think they look pretty cool in the car.
