Anticipation

Monday, October 30th, 2006

I have so much to look forward to in the coming weeks and months.

Wednesday, Lisa is coming to spend a few days with us.

Thursday, I am taking the train to Tacoma with June and Terry to see the American Art Company’s exhibit that opened last week ?Ǩ 9th Northwest Art Quilt Invitational. June is reviewing it for the Art Quilt Reviews Blog.

Sunday, I am heading for Art Quilt Tahoe where I will see Liz, Kristin and Teri and many other cool art quilters. I am taking two sessions. The first session is with Jeanette Meyer, who is from Portland. She is teaching a design class. The next session, I am taking a studio class with Charlotte Yde.

I have to ship my supplies tomorrow and I am having a hard time getting my s— together, if you know what I mean. Here is the pile that I need to organize and pack and take to FedEx tomorrow.

Larkin Van Horn, who lives on Whidby Island, is curating a show for the Latimer Quilt and Textile Center in Tilamook and has invited me to make a piece. The theme is “It’s Good to be Green”. I am
using a double meaning for green ?Ǩ using recycled textiles that are green. Today, I received these Japanese Kimono sleeves. The quilt dimensions have to be 18″ wide and 45 ” long. I am hoping to get a good start on this in the studio class with Charlotte.

I also received this in the mail and am looking forward to wearing it at Tahoe. It was dyed and screenprinted by Debra with a thermofax screen that I made for her. You, too, can own one. Go to her blog and see all the cool shirts she has made.

It is pretty chilly here in Portland so I have enjoyed wearing the hat and gloves that Mr C gave me for my birthday and that makes him happy.

Hopefully, tomorrow, I can post photos of M & M dressed for Halloween.
