Reception at Life and Limb

Twelve of the diptychs from the book, A Year of Mornings, were enlarged and beautifully framed. If you click on the photo above, you can see the photos better. We bought the top photo on the left. It has the back of Mia with her braid.

This little gallery/shop has lots of great stuff and they specialize in cacti!

That wall with the trees is really amazing.

Here are Steph and Jack chatting with a patron!!

And here is the adorable MAV — Maria — the co-conspirator.

Mia and Miles were playing out on the sidewalk. I took this photo through the glass and so you see a reflection of the gallery.

I enjoy being the mom of the artist. I am so proud of what the two girls have accomplished.

I found the perfect thread this morning for quilting the water. I wanted some teal and orange. I found a Superior King Tut that was perfect.

I started the quilting of the sky which is a little more complicated, but I am loving how it looks. I may have this finished and ready for binding or facing by tomorrow night.

    I love that gallery space..very peaceful. The tree wall looks like something of Lisa’s, doesn’t it??? The enlarged photos are great. You must be so very proud of all of your chilluns!

    The word in Yiddish is “kvell” – the best way I can translate it is “swell up with pride.” You should indeed kvell over your beautiful, talented offspring.

    I wish I could have made it to the reception, but we had theater tickets. Is this the first time Steph and Maria met f2f?

    Congratulations to the artist and the mother of the artist! I love cacti…I don’t think there is a place around here that specializes in such.

    And Rayna’s piece is wonderful…where will you hang it?
