    Elaine Quehl - Textile and Quilt Artist

    in Art

    Elaine Quehl is a Canadian quilt artist, teacher, and fabric dyer who is best known for her dramatic and colourful nature-themed art quilts featuring luscious foliage (particularly hosta leaves), flowers and trees. All fabric used in her artwork is hand-dyed by the artist to provide the wide range of values she employs to create depth, drama, and contrast, and to read like nature's dappled light. Each art quilt is also abundantly textured with free-motion stitching. Elaine's work has been juried into, and selected for awards at, numerous international and national exhibits and has been widely published. Most recently, she was a featured artist in Art Quilt Portfolio: Natural World. Elaine is a graduate of Carleton University (B.A.Hon.) where her Major subjects were Anthropology and Religion. She continued on with graduate studies, completing coursework in Religion and Popular Culture, but discovered the world of art quilts before finishing her thesis. Elaine is keenly interested in the way that we as humans make meaning, find our place in the world, and the factors that affect our creativity. 
    ARTIST STATEMENT:
    My quilts celebrate the visual drama that is present in the natural world. I aim to evoke the emotion, awe and wonder I experience when I first encounter my subjects. Often described as bold and sensual, my work employs contrasts of light and shadow to intensify visual impact. Foliage, trees, flowers, and nature's cycles serve as metaphors for my inner world and allow communication and connection with the world through universally-understood themes of personal growth, wonder, self-acceptance, loss and healing, joy, and the cycles of life.

    The Fabric of Our Lives - It's Your Appointed Time

    in Spirituality

    A Word was shared with me a few days ago, that prompted me to take another look at the Fabric of my Life.


    "Do not be discouraged.  When making a quilt, every stitch will not be perfect.  Some may be long, others short - some may even cause the fabric to buckle but they all add to the uniqueness of the end product.  It will be bonded together, creating a masterpiece - an ORIGINAL!  When viewing the unique characteristics of this peice of fabric, people won't be able to see the imperfections - they will be captured by the beauty.   They may not appreciate the behind the scene workings, the pricked fingers, the broken needles.  They haven't experienced the fatigue of the process - they focus on the end product.  I paraphrased what was spoken to me and share with you this - it's time to reaccess the fabric and process of your life and press on.  There is a masterpiece in you that's waiting to be revealed.


    Habakkuk 2:3(NKJV)  For the vision is yet for an appointed time; But at the end it will speak, and it will not lie. Though it tarries, wait for it; Because it will surely come, It will not tarry.

    Write on the Edge w/ Lisa Henry and JA Rock

    in Books

    Join us as we shine the spotlight on the world’s sauciest authors dedicated to the realms of BDSM, GLBT, and Erotica. Write On the Edge asks the questions few dare. It pushes the limits and creates the standard of steamy, intelligent converse. This show is intended for an Adult Audience and is rated R for raw, real and risky subject matter. Are you ready to be…Write on the Edge?


    This week’s Featured Authors are . . . Lisa Henry and JA Rock!


    JA Rock has worked as a dog groomer, knife seller, haunted house zombie, standardized patient, cashier, census taker, state fair, quilt hanger, and for one less-than-magical evening, a server-and would much rather be writing about those jobs than doing them.  JA lives in Chicago but still sees West Virginia behind Illinois's back.


    Lisa Henry likes to tell stories, mostly with hot guys and happily ever afters, but they've gotta work for it.  No free lunches on her watch.  She lives in tropical N. Queensland, Aus.  She doesn't know why because she hates the heat, but suspects she's too lazy to move.  She spends half her time slaving away as a government minion, and the other half plotting her escape.


    Buy The Two Gentlemen of Altona  Buy Merchant of Death


    Join Author Vicktor Alexander (and cohosts Amanda C. Stone and Taylor Law) as he hosts this edgy, woefully delicious talk.


    Write On the Edge is produced by WON Radio as part of Writers Online Network (WON). More information about WON is available at www.writersonlinenetwork.org They can also be found on Facebook and Twitter @won_radio and @writersonnet

    John Carver Show - I Don't Deserve it...do you?

    in Self Help

    Grace is, by definition, unfair.


    Progress Magazine, December 14, 1992:


    When Billy Graham was driving through a small southern town, he was stopped by a policeman and charged with speeding. Graham admitted his quilt, but was told by the officer that he would have to appear in court.


    The judge asked, "Guilty, or not guilty?" When Graham pleaded guilty, the judge replied, "That'll be ten dollars -- a dollar for every mile you went over the limit."


    Suddenly the judge recognized the famous minister. "You have violated the law," he said. "The fine must be paid--but I am going to pay it for you." He took a ten dollar bill from his own wallet, attached it to the ticket, and then took Graham out and bought him a steak dinner! "That," said Billy Graham, "is how God treats repentant sinners!" 


    Psalm 118:1 - Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good; his love (mercy) endures forever. 


    “Grace is the voice that calls us to change and then gives us the power to pull it off.” —Max Lucado


    As Erwin Lutzer said...


    “Only those who see themselves as utterly destitute can fully appreciate the grace of God.” 


    While we were sinners, Christ died for us, said Paul, who called himself the chief of sinners.  With his background, Paul understood grace.


    "Be careful not to shut your soul’s door through doubt, when God has just opened it by His grace." -John Bunyan


    Jesus made the “failures” the heroes of his stories.


    There's so much more on this show...
