Many of you in blog land will have seen profile pictures of portrait quilts made by a wonderfully creative lady - Carol Turznick - in the States. I have one - and I think I may have been the first in Australia...I love my portrait and will treasure it for ever now.
I read today that she passed away over the weekend. She had been unwell - but undiagnosed - since November last year - but had kept her blog going showing envelops that she decorated for her nieces when she sent books, her knitting projects and a list of the books she had read. We had often had little chats going back and forth over cyber space and I truly admired all her work... colourful, zany & very artistic.
The patchwork/craft world has lost a wonderful person.
