Dear Friends:

It’s great to be back in Virginia and getting to see spring unfold. The trees are budding, and the daffodils, redbud, and forsythia are blooming—beautiful! There are so many different shades of green that are visible in the spring, and I love seeing all the shades and colors the season has to offer.

Spring is coming to the P. Buckley Moss Museum.

As most of you know, the P. Buckley Moss Society is celebrating its 20th anniversary this year with three fabulous birthday parties. The first one will be at the Blank Park Zoo in Des Moines, Iowa, on April 28; the second, at the P. Buckley Moss Museum in Waynesboro, Virginia, on June 15; and the third, in conjunction with my Collectors’ Convention in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, July 20-21.

I’ve been working on some fabric squares that will become the centerpieces for three special quilted wall hangings that are being made to auction at the birthday parties. The proceeds from the auctions will benefit the P. Buckley Moss Foundation for Children’s Education, Ronald McDonald Houses, and the P. Buckley Moss Endowed Scholarship. I’ve actually created five squares in all, so I have two spares.

Pat has painted fabric squares that will be worked into quilts for the P. Buckley Moss Society to auction at their 20th anniversary birthday parties this year.

I’m very grateful to the talented ladies who are doing the quilting. Betty Donahoe from Fort Dodge, Iowa, and a member of the Central Iowa Chapter will do the stitching on the wall hanging for the Society’s first birthday party in Des Moines. Ladye Buckner of Grayson, Georgia, and a member of the Mossaphile Chapter will do the honors for the wall hanging that will be auctioned at my Museum in Waynesboro, Virginia, in June. The quilter for the Lancaster, Pennsylvania, event in July is yet to be determined. Quilters are truly artists, and I admire their work. I love it that the chapters are so supportive and involved with our celebration plans, too.

Another painting I’ve recently finished is for Martin’s Gallery in Hanover, Pennsylvania. Our Town Fountain will be released as a print edition at their show April 13-14, and I’ll be there to sign the prints!

Our Town Fountain will be released during Pat's appearance at Martin's Gallery, Hanover, PA, April 13-14. For more information, call the gallery, (717) 632-3355.

Looking forward to seeing you soon…
