A New Adventure!


Come sail with me this year on a new adventure! I have been chosen to be an Island Batik Ambassador!! A couple of month’s ago a former ambassador posted to my quilt guild’s Facebook page about this opportunity. I completed the application right away and then pretty much forgot about it. Oh the wonderful surprise when I was notified that I was chosen!


What does all this mean to me and to my readers? First, I am not very patiently awaiting a box packed with yummy goodies – beautiful Island Batik fabrics. And I just happen to be a batik fanatic! Each month I will share with you a project complete with pattern and instructions and the Island Batiks I have chosen for that project. Lucky me – I get to design, sew and use beautiful fabrics!


February – the first project, will be a Kennel Quilt that will be donated to Bark and Roll Rescue Companions in Baton Rouge, LA. It has been so educational to read about this volunteer organization. I love pets. We no longer have a dog; she sadly passed on several years ago, but we do have Taz, a “rescue” cat from a shelter. Yup, he’s our special boy! And here he on his perch on the porch resting on the quilt pad, much like a kennel quilt, I made for him.


And who is Island Batik? “Island Batik is a manufacturer, importer and distributor of cotton batik, rayon batik and hand-printed cotton from Indonesia. Originally established in 1997, Island Batik’s mission is to share the ancient cultural art of batik and hand-dyed fabric with our many valued customers around the world.” Most importantly, their fabrics are amazing and I can’t wait to play with them, pet them, and share them with you! Hope you’ll sail with me on this great adventure!!

  8. Taz looks like a friendly cat! Thanks for sharing! We have just rescued three siblings, Ziggy (tabby) and his two black sisters (Nera and Ebony). They are in hiding at the moment! I have a poetry blog here on WordPress and this week’s poems are all about cats in case you have time to read? Have a good day, Sam 🙂
