Remembering someone else...

A quilting friend died Wednesday evening after having been sick for a while... she had started to get better it seemed, the doctors were finally paying attention to her. And suddenly, she was gone.

I think, if I'm remembering correctly, the first time I met Louella was at a "quilt-athon". She instructed me, and anyone else who would hold still, on how to properly hand-tie quilts. She was very determined that her way was the RIGHT way to tie quilts. I will always remember her telling me that, and being so fierce about it!

So she's off to the great quilt bee, reunited with her husband and family.

Remembering someone

I found out this week that someone I knew in passing online has died. At first, I wasn't sure -you shouldn't always believe everything you hear- but then I heard it from another location, and that confirmed it for me. I couldn't find anything about her except a piece of art in one search, and some other art in a search on Flickr. Well, today on a Yahoo Group, someone reported having emailed this lady's sister, and getting a response. So yes, she really did pass away.

So this post is for remembering Jacquie Rubinstein, "Art Girl" and artful inspiration. May she be having a blast with the rainbow of Sharpies now available to her. No more running out of ink or blunt tips or not having enough supplies.
