9.  Do you have any studio companions (human or otherwise)? My daughter Jennifer and her dog Chloe are my studio companions. When I am sitting doing quilting or piecing she and Chloe come in and we watch movies together, well they watch and I listen!

10.  What was the biggest challenge in creating your piece for Reflections? The biggest Challenge was creating and developing the quilt so that it told the story I wanted to tell. I required using photoshop, digital manipulation, photo transfer and then adding the applique and paints to get that look I wanted.
