It is a pleasure to be a guest on the Common Thread Give-a-way. Involved are Kim Gifford ( Pugs and Pics) and Jane McMillen ( little house home arts) and Rachel Barlow (picking my battles) and then Maria Wulf , fullmoonfiberart.com. I am offering my book called The Last Bird Sings to the winner. Names will be selected from comments. They will go into a box and be picked randomly. The contest is run from Monday, June 3 rd until Wednesday the 5th. I will announce the winner on Thursday the 6th of June. I am looking forward to joining these highly talented women and cannot tell you how delighted I am to have been asked to be a guest. I hope that many of you will spend some time looking at my work and comments are always appreciated. To know that my work reaches and relates to some of you is rewarding. I have posted an excerpt from the book which is part memoir and part philosophy. I hope you will find it interesting.
