jdemilo--Intro Post

jdemilo (j-de-mi-lo with all long vowels) is a name that I have chosen for myself.  I once heard a quote that a beautiful young woman is a work of nature but a beautiful older woman is a work of art.  I decided that as I rebuilt myself after a difficult marriage and divorce that I wanted to be a beautiful older woman with an inner glow.  I wanted a name that would remind me of my goal so I chose DeMilo after Venus. 

I have been a self-taught quilter for...oh, at least 30 years...but I aspire to become a fiber artist. My journey has taken me to quilt guilds, art classes on design, tutorials on YouTube, and hanging out in blogland with other quilters and fiber artist.  My blog is Quilt or Dye.

I am excited about this challenge and thrilled to be invited to participate.  I hope to gain experience and skills as I work on small art projects.  I WANT your comments (the good, the bad, and the ugly) as I grow into my craft.
