And The Winner Is…….

common potholders

Congratulations Mary Butterfield, you are the winner of this month’s Common Thread Give-a-way, my two potholders!

And for everyone else, thanks for being a part of the contest.   And don’t forget to come back next month when it’s Rachel Barlow’s (our new artist) turn to give away a piece of her art.  You can see some of Rachel’s work on her blog Picking My Battles, where she writes about being an artist and mom.  As you might be able to tell from the title of her blog,  it’s not all sweets and sunshine and she has a really  good sense of humor about it.

  1. Wow Maria! I have never, ever won anything in my entire life! There is a first time for everything I see. I wasn’t even sure that I knew correctly how to post a response, but decided to give it a try. I must admit that I have been in a 4 year period of feeling quite lost and have been working on finding the path ahead. Thank you for infusing a bit of encouragement to my journey with your beautiful art. The potholders are beautiful…little gardens…they are similar but not exactly the same. I will share one with my twin sister (Martha Butterfield) who is also feeling a little lost right now and struggling to find the path ahead. She and I are also similar but not exactly the same. If life and finances ever allow for it, I would like to bring her to attend one of yours and Mr. Katz’s open houses. Continued best wishes in your creative endeavors.



    1. I’m honored Mary, to be a small stop on your path. And how perfect the potholders are for twin sisters. Very much alike with subtle, but important difference.
