The Glory of Spring

Peony from my garden

This grand peony appeared in my garden just in time for Mother’s Day. Isn’t it gorgeous? Peonies are so hardy and tough, and the deer don’t eat them, which is a requirement here in the Appalachians.

I’m on my way to Quilt Market in Portland to announce my upcoming book Color Mastery, which will be available in Feb. 09. This is my first Quilt Market, and my first business trip after having kids and being a stay-at-home mom. I’ll miss everyone but will have fun developing contacts and meeting new people.

What an adventure. I’ll be blogging tiny little posts from my mobile phone. I did a test and I can upload photos via Flickr and they automatically appear here as well. Watch for my updates and breaking news from market!
