This and That

I didn’t get much creative work done over the week-end. I spent quite a bit of time finishing some SDA website database work. Mia and Miles came over on Saturday to spend some time. Steph was in Maine working on 3191 stuff with Maria and I wanted to give Jack a bit of a break. I made dinner for every one. Her flight from Maine this morning was cancelled. She was supposed to be home at noon. Her later flight is getting her in closer to midnight. I picked the kids up from school so that Jack could get a full day of work in. Steve is going to pick up Steph at the airport tonight. Tomorrow, every thing will be back to normal in Portland!!

Yesterday, I did do some watercolor painting on my Haiku book pages and then printed a Haiku on each page.

I put some Scooter paw prints on his page.

That was fun.

I got some wonderful news today that Allegro, the piece that I recently reworked, was accepted into Art Quilts Year XVI: Something to Say at the Visions Art Gallery in Chandler, AZ. I think this is the third or fourth year I have gotten into this show. It is one of the truly art quilt shows with lots of innovative work.

    Congratulations, Gerrie, I am really intrigued by what you’ve done with this piece, wish I could see it in person.

    Congrats on getting into that show again. Do you know of a good source for upcoming art quilt entries? I’ve been following Fiber Arts Calls for Entry for years but it seems to have fewer and fewer art quilt exhibits these days. Thanks!
