I almost said "unexpected surprise" but that's pretty redundant. Aren't all surprises unexpected? Anyway, I did a google search on "fruitcake brick" and my blog came up on the very first page! 'Brick fruitcake' brings it up close to the top of the second page. Of course neither of those search terms has a damn thing to do with quilts, art, or art quilting so I guess I shouldn't get too excited. Well, maybe a little bit excited.
And on the quilting front, my piece "Orphans of the Motherland" will be shown to another group of people in Minnesota. It's going to an IAPP dinner/presentation to be used to illustrate a talk on visions and living your dreams. I think that is a very cool use for it. The other very cool use for it is the pleasure my friend (and the owner of the quilt) Mary gets from seeing it hanging in her office. As the saying goes, my quilt travels more than I do.
