200th post

This is my 200th post! I've had to deal another family health issues in the past a few weeks, I couldn't have much time for blogging. I was planning to complete some handmade goodies to have a giveaway for my 200th post. Unfortunately, I had to postpone it for a later date!
I decided to devote my 200th post to my dear teacher Nur Cubukcu! So, I wanted to share some photos of my teacher Nur Cubukcu who taught me SRE and CQ. She is master quilter and the author of "The Dance of the Ribbons" book. Nowadays, she gives her full performance for a fund that provides scholarships for the university students. In this photo, you can see me with her in front of the lovely calla flowers at her beautiful garden.
Mrs. Cubukcu was giving silk ribbon classes. If I'm a crazy quilter today, Mrs.Cubukcu is the main reason, because I coincidentally saw a mini CQ quilt at her SRE class and afterwords I crazily learned CQ:)) When she recognized my high CQ interest she gave her full support to teach me CQ principals, including stitch techniques and shared her stash with me.
I was doing sane quilts but the crazy quilting is another passionate interest:)
I would like to thank her once again here that I found a special hobby for my retirement that I was always willing to make something different. Is there any other craft that combines sewing, embroidery, beading, painting fabrics or embellishment with laces, ribbons, charms, buttons?
Dear Nur Hoca thanks so much for your all support to teach me Crazy Quilting. Otherwise I shouldn't post this message, I shouldn't do CQ'ing, I shouldn't have wonderful CQ'er buddies at all over the world.

She is an excellent teacher, as shown by your gorgeous work.

Sorry to read about family issues. Whatever they are, they are almost always a bit difficult to deal with.

Take care.

Special thanks for your lovely comments.
My dear mother was so sick in the previous weeks, her blood pressure level was so high. Glad that she is fine now with her Doctor's special attention.
Thanks so much for your concern.
