My New Website!

I've finally finished my quilting website! Check it out at www.dianedoran.com . It includes a gallery of most of my quilts, with detail shots of some of them.

Other exciting news: my Little Treasure that was in the Fiberart For A Cause reverse auction already sold. What a delightful surprise! Many thanks to the generous lady who bought it.

When I mentioned the Southern Maryland Quilt & Needlework Show earlier today, I neglected to describe it. It's both a quilt and a needlework show. The location is a beautiful manor house on the banks of the Patuxent River. It has a lovely garden, and often the peonies (masses of them) are in bloom for the show. If not, then the irises and poppies. They have a catered lunch under a tent, and a number of vendors in various locations on the property. The quilts and needlework are displayed in the out buildings, and some years they're displayed in the manor house itself. A variety of demonstrations are held (mostly on the portico of the manor house). There's a gorgeous raffle quilt, as well as a crewel embroidery to be raffled. It's a great way to spend the day.

Oh, my! Can I be your secret pal and get one of your amazingly gorgeous pieces of art (your quilts, of course)? Are you my dye-o-rama pal? Maybe or maybe not... Thanks for the compliments on my dye job.
