It's Been a While

In my last long ago post, I told you that we had made a decision to move. We are finally in our new home. Not totally settled, but the worst is behind us. While my husband is busy making storage space to put all our stuff, we bought a larger home, but don't have space for everything we had in the old one, my project is decorating. I'm excited, but I always second guess myself so I am having a professional come in for some advice.

I've been busy sorting out my art work and goodies into piles. One is I want this, another is maybe, and another is no way. It was great to look at everything again, and see just what I do have.

I am also getting ready to teach, " Natures Confetti ", at J. C Campbell Folk School, May 3-9. Never a dull moment, but I wouldn't like that either.

"The Waterboy" is on display through May 3, at "Artfields 2015" in Lake City, SC. This is a juried show for the Southeast States. You can visit and see all the wonderful art in the show. You can also vote on viewers choice. If you feel so inclined I would appreciate you considering voting for my piece.

I'm hoping to be able to post more frequently now that we have moved. Especially while at JCCAMPBELL.

The Cats out of the Bag

It's been a very long time since I last posted. There are several reason, we had three deaths in the family, we were traveling over the holidays, and some where during that time we sold our house.

We decided in Oct. that we wanted to move to Mt Pleasant, SC to be near out daughter. We love where we live but we have no family near by. We know that eventually, as we get older, we will be forced to move. We decided that we wanted to do this while be were both healthy, could get out to met new friends.

What we didn't count on was for the house to sell so quickly. This is not a complain mind you, we just weren't ready. We go to CA every Feb for a month to spend time near our son's family. The condo was rented, the tickets purchased, etc. We made the decision to go ahead with our plans. That meant we needed to find a house, make moving plans, ect, ect.

Can you understand why I'm not making art? We found a house with a BIG room for a studio that has seven large windows and one glass door. It opens onto a second floor porch. I love it.

I hope that you will look at my blog, every once in a while, to see if I'm back in the studio making art. I will be taking lots of photos in CA and will be posing some of them. Since photos are the inspiration for my quilts I will actually be working.
It will be a while before I can actually get back in the studio, but I will be collecting images, thinking about design and waiting to get back to work.
