49 Days to go

I'm on a count down. Only 49 days to go.

Obviously not to Thanksgiving which is tomorrow.

Obviously not to Christmas which is in 33 days.

Not until a new would have heard about that already!


On January 9, 2007 I hit the air for LaGrange, Texas. This is a small town between Houston and Austin and not too far away from San Antonio, my hometown. I'll fly in to San Antonio, meet up with another artist and rent a car and head to La Grange. The two of us will take up residency until February 5 at which time we will pack up and head back to San Antonio.

La Grange is a small Texas town in hill country that has about 4000 residents, one of whom happens to be Karey Bresenhan. Karey and her husband own some acreage just outside of town and have their country place there. It is an animal sanctuary as well as a Creative Center. They have a studio for a residency program. And...we are going!

I am starting to think about all the things I want to do. I think I will work on a new series I have just started, but then I've been thinking about some other things also.

Got to figure out what I am going to do so I can get things shipped.

Virginia and I can hardly wait!

Where Have I Been?

It seems like forever and ever since I have graced these pages...oh, doesn't that sound fancy? Well, fancy, I am not!

Went to ArtQuiltTahoe and didn't feel very sharp the entire time. But I do have a couple of pictures!

The top picture shows Carol Suto, my roommate and buddy, at her table with stuff ready for class.

The next picture shows one of our desserts...then a picture of Gerrie and you can check her blog for more pictures of desserts and she will tell you what day this was...I don't remember.

And then, there is a picture of my space all ready for class. Looks pretty clean, Huh! That isn't how it remained.

And, of course, the gratuitous pictures of the he is with his first piece of fiber art which I discussed in an earlier post.

Two years ago, I left ArtQuiltTahoe and on the road home, learned that my daughter was going in for an emergency C Section. I arrived at the hospital just after Jacob was born. Last year I went to ArtQuiltTahoe and missed his first brithday. This time, I made it! Jacob at 2 with his Elmo birthday cake!
