My Dyslexia

Having the skill to write, spell, and punctuate has never been my strong suit. Growing up as a young child I was always nurtured to be creative and artistic which came naturally to me but I could never quite grasp written language. I now know that it's a learning disabilty with a name: DYSLEXIA.

I write from the heart and I make my best effort to get the words on the page properly but as you'll see I don't always succeed. I ask you to enjoy what I write and post but to be understanding and kind. Brian

A dear friend and how proud of her I am.

Hello good friends.  I am very happy to say that all is going well and I can't be happier.

I want to share a story about a good friend of mine. When I was in the early stages of deciding whether I should pursue being a quilter, and if I had what it takes, I made a pilgrimage to my good friend Janet Brandt. I was so nervous to show her my babies. As you know, no one wants to be told that his babies are ugly and put them out there in the world for total judgment.

Much to my dismay, Janet said what are you waiting for?  I said I didn't know if I have enough material to write a whole book? She very kindly said that I had enough content to write twelve books and to travel and teach.  As artists I do think we always  have a way of  thinking maybe we aren't good enough. She gave me the confidence to make that dream for me come true and for that I want to say to all of you--follow your dreams!  As for my dear friend, thank you for lifting me up in life.  You mean the world to me and I value your thoughts and opinions.

I am now going to return the favor with this link to my friend's world.  I call it a world because it is not just a blog. It is Janet through and through. Janet has created a wonderful world for all of us to live in and I want you all to go to her site and share one of the world's gifts that I have received. You can take the journey by going through the archives on her blog at

Thanks for tuning in and seeing a little insight on how I am who I am.
