It was just a 'little' rat snake--not harmless--but not really what you want to encounter in a tiny laundry room. I'm terribly impressed with my snake handler daughter (seen right). Soon after I took this shot of her, the snake wiggled and it was a miracle I didn't throw my camera across the room as I jumped back. . . . I'm a bit put off of laundry for the time being.
And now for some quilting news . . .
My new book, Farm Fresh Quilts, is now out. I'm so happy with how the book looks. I really haven't seen a Kansas City Star book I don't like, but this time I think the photographer and the book designer really outdid themselves creating such a beautiful book out of my quilts and projects.
