Rhonda, textile artist and runner.......

I met Rhonda the same way I met Janice and Doris. We have taken classes together at the local quilt shop and also attended workshops with Gwen Marston through the Austin Quilt Guild. Today she shared with us a hexagon quilt that she is working on using an assortment of beautiful and colorful fabrics using the English paper piecing method. I think she plans to make it on the design of a 'Grandmother's Garden' quilt. It is going to be beautiful. We are also following her progress on her 'Wave' crochet blanket in some fabulous colors. She brought along some sweet pin keeps and a cross-stitch piece that she will be making into a needle book as well. Oh.....and did I mention she is training for her first marathon in the new year! She is running approximately 12 miles every other day and if you follow the weather in Austin, we have had record heat all summer! We are all amazed at what she accomplishes .
I am very blessed to know Rhonda and Janice and Doris. I hope you have enjoyed our 'show and tell'. Until next month.......
