I was standing at the American Craft Exposition in Evanston, Illinois when friends of mine came running down to my booth.
"Ann," they said. "Is there anyone who can get your quilts out of your studio? Shelburne Falls is flooding."
Soon, as they say, the rest is history. My beloved studio which had stood since the 1930's floated down the river as a result of Tropical Storm Irene.
Don't tell me that climate change is not real. Period.
While I waited for my new studio to get build I made a series of quilts based on the Deerfield River. Much better than fretting when it would get finished, wasn't it?
