Missed It
My Blogaversary, that is. January 20th was the 4th anniversary of this blog. Wow, can hardly believe that I stuck with it this long. Yes, there are some pretty big gaps along the way but, over-all, I have done ok.

Now I need to go work on that quilt so I have some art to post.

Working Away
On a piece that was for a show but I missed the deadline because I was so sick (pneumonia) most of December and January. Anyway, I am finishing the piece. Maybe I can use it as an entry for another show. Who knows- stranger things have happened.

About Me

Name: Teri Springer
Home: Chester, Nova Scotia, Canada
About Me: Studio Art Quilt Associates for the Atlantic Canada Region (New Brunswick, Newfoundland/Labrador, Nova Scotia, and Prince Edward Island). Quote:Apples and Wine: Women are like apples on trees. The best ones are at the top of the tree. Most men don't want to reach for the good ones because they are afraid of falling and getting hurt. Instead, they sometimes take the apples from the ground that aren't as good, but easy. The apples at the top think something is wrong with them, when in reality, they're amazing. They just have to wait for the right man to come along, the one who is brave enough & smart enough to climb all the way to the top of the tree. Now Men... Men are like a fine wine. They begin as grapes, and it's up to women to stomp the hell out of them until they turn into something acceptable to have dinner with.
