From Stars on Mars to Armadillos


Gail Stepanek and I were thrilled when we found out that our quilt Stars on Mars has won Best of Show at the Indiana Heritage Quilt Show in Bloomington.  We both really love
this quilt and it's fun to see it recognized. 

From the sublime to the ridiculous: today on driving home from Wichita I caught sight of an armadillo digging alongside the road.  Armadillos have been slowly moving north into Kansas and up until now the only ones I have seen were squashed by the side of the road.  This guy was digging up someone's front yard with great energy.  He let me get pretty close to get a picture with my cell phone.  What weird little creatures they are!  He looks like a cross between a rabbit and a turtle, or a dinosaur.  He was not happy with me getting close - he finally grunted and scuttled off.


  1. That armadillo is totally weird. I've never seen one. You snapped an amazing photo.

  2. Congratulations!!!!!! We'll deserved win for sure!!! Armadillo IS funny looking. Cute in an odd way. :-)

  3. Awesome! Congratulations on the win!! It's beautiful!
