Hattie Shorts, artist extraordinaire !

I attended a private art show in Juno Beach, FL for local artists. Every medium was represented well. My fascination was for a particular artist so gifted and prolific in her creations. Hattie Shorts quilts these "Stack and Whack" quilts (Author: Bethany Reynolds) in just a few days. There are three generationso of quilters/artists in her family. I recently met her daughter in law Suzanne and grandson Ryan. Ryan designed and made two quilts when ten years old. I'll be showing you more of their work soon.

Two quilts created by Maya Chenovich. My photography just didn't capture the
beauty of the details. Click on her name for a close up of a quilt from 2011

Etón FR160R Microlink Self-Powered AM/FM/NOAA Weather Radio with Flashlight, Solar Power and Cell Phone Charger

Well, here it is only February and the alarmists are ringing the bell about hurricane preparedness. I usually ignore them till July but I did like this nifty little gadget. I do remember that year when a few h's touched down here and I did listen to the radio all night...ran out of batteries....couldn't charge a cell phone. Even if you're camping Yosemite it would be great to charge the cell phone with solar power...right? Here's the link to Amazon where it is 25% off and free ship.
