About Me

My Photo
Great Falls, Montana, United States
I love creating art. I love the Creator! And through that love, I find a little slice of heaven on earth and I give Him all the glory! It's a great adventure and I'm excited to see what's around the bend! Come join me, won't you?

Here's YOUR SIGN -- Draw Near

This framed poster is a favorite of mine, from Mary Engelbreit, of whom I have LONG  been a fan.  
It now hangs in my studio; a lovely reminder of building faith and talking to God as I quilt, design and contemplate!
My former high school teacher;  the most beautiful, and gracious Katie Twedt, (a  fabulous paper artist) 
made what has now become my studio  sign:
"Contemporary Art Quilts by Leslie McNeil."  (Love the ORANGE!) 
I am honored to be the featured artist this August-September at The Liberty Village Arts Center in my hometown, Chester, MT!  Katie's art will 
be featured in November & December, 2011!

My SYMPHONY

"My Symphony"  
by Wm. Henry Channing
illustrated by Mary Engelbreit in this charming little book:
To live content with small means;

To seek elegance rather than luxury, 

and refinement rather than fashion; 

To be worthy, not respectable; 

wealthy, not rich;

To study hard, 
 think quietly, 
talk gently
act frankly; 

To listen to stars and birds, 
to babes and sages, 
with open heart, to bear all cheerfully, 


do all bravely,
await occasions, 
hurry never.
... To let the spiritual, 
unbidden and unconscious, 
grow up through the common.

This is to be my symphony
--Photography by Leslie Vaskey McNeil--

I hope you enjoyed this personal illustration  created just for you using some of my favorite photographs and charming poetry.   
 
I'm excited to be playing with lots of new things in my sewing studio, and I have been planning a few more tips and hints to share.  I hope you'll visit again next Monday as I'm off serving our most gracious God at the 
Women's Tres Dias tomorrow evening!

Here's YOUR SIGN - Worry

A favorite "sign" so to speak - courtesy of the charming artwork of Mary Engelbreit... and such a great piece of advice.  Worry is a burden, and frankly... a lack of faith!  Praying you have a wonderful Saturday!
