The two art shows in February went very well. The TN Craft-Southwest show at the Memphis Jewish Community Center was spectacular! So many talented artists in that group. The collaborative efforts were outstanding. I'm very glad that I was a part of it and hope to find someone to work with for next year's show.
 This is the llama in pajama that I worked on with Rebecca Zeimer, an amazing potter. She has created 366 critters in the past year as part of a challenge. They are almost ready for display and I cannot wait to see them all together.
   The other piece is a piggy in a tutu! You'll have to look at TN Craft's website for a good photo of that and the other artist's works. www.tncraftsouthwest.org

This is my most recent art quilt, which was in the show. It's based on a photograph of me taken in 1978 or 1979. the quilting in the background is words and phrases, some that I wrote and other things I've heard or read. I call it "Wishful Thinking". Obviously, I was having a not so wonderful hair day--this was before I discovered Moroccan Argan hair product! I did rock that rhinestone necklace, though......
   The other show was at Crosstown Arts, called "Can We Talk?" The theme was break ups and lots of different artists showed their responses to failed relationships. It was VERY interesting and I was happy to be a part of that show, too. My piece was one of the art quilts I made during the "troubles", as I like to refer to that difficult time in my life when my marriage was ending. So happy those days are long gone.

Fingers crossed

I've decided it's best to write in short bursts before blogger crashes. My main projects are due in February for the group show with Tennessee Craft Southwest.
   If possible, I'll post more info about the show later on when this site is acting better.

This new year

Fifth time is the charm, I hope for posting here. Last year is gone according to the calendar and a new one has taken its place.

This new year

Well, the new regime at google has made it harder than I had expected to write this post, but I will certainly try to get this done without losing all the witty verses I've written that have disappeared into the ether. Grrrrrrr
   Weather is typically shitty for this part of the world. But could be worse. 
Many projects beckon and its good to be indoors to finish them, since I have a deadline.

Today, I was able to gather my thoughts enough to work on this....

It seems the frustration will never end! The recent political situation has only added to derail my search for a quiet mind. I don't think I'm the only one feeling this way theses days.
  I did find the energy to complete my healthcare application, because I HAD to finish it, so I will have some coverage till it all goes to hell. Still a few more steps to make sure I'm registered properly.
 Past experience of doing all the right things to make something work, then being met with gut wrenching disappointment, haunts every step I take these days. But, I will put one foot in front of the other and meet each day with the hope for a better tomorrow. There's really not an acceptable alternative.

Frustration continues

So here are the photos of most recent yard and art projects. I do hope this posts.
