Coincidence, maybe?

It just occurred to me that the day of the election for the mayor (who just left yay!) there was a tornado and yesterday as he was going out the door of City Hall there was a tornado. Hmmmmmmm........

Gone at Last!!

The so called "mayor" of Memphis FINALLY left---hurray!!! Hopefully we will have some real leadership in this town. The man who is the interim mayor has a daunting task ahead of him till the post is filed in the special election-90 days I think. Mayor Lowery will have to clean house at City Hall with a big broom to get all the dirt out. Fortunately he seems to be a pragmatic sort, which I think is a good attribute for anybody, especially public servants. The recent former mayor forgot the concept of public servant and embraced fiefdom. Not good for leadership.
Back to art--I feel better after unloading on the political thing. Work is caught up a little bit. (Please don't jinx me sewing fairies!!) Maybe I can have some mental health time, since I had to miss my regular mental health day last Monday--tonsillitis!
Some good news. I have been invited to have a show of my art works at Germantown Performing Arts Center (GPAC) in November. All info has been submitted and I'm waiting on the contract with all the definite dates, etc. GPAC is a very nice venue. My quilts will hang in the upper lobby for approx, six weeks. The quilts are a mix of older and recent work that have (I think) a cohesive feel, mostly abstract and semi abstract pieces that showcase my hand dyed and original surface design fabrics. Wish me luck.

Again with the garden

We must have a thousand lycoris bulbs in this yard and I think everyone of them has bloomed this year. One of the crinum lilies has bloomed too. Must be all the rain.

Ready to cuss

By loading the photos one at a time, I was FINALLY able to post.

Photos went to the ether

Blogger is being difficult. all the pictures have disappeared and I can't find them now or post them again.

Fabric, finally!

Okay kids, I have blown off this entire day. No semblance of productivity whatsoever.I did take photos and finish a wall hanging--that might be construed as productive, but I did not indulge myself in any money making endeavors. Too bad. Anywho, here are photos of the experiment with soy wax and some things I did with discharge paste. Plus a thing I did with glue as a resist.

The garden

Well children, I finally brought my camera next to the computer and got the photos off it. Maybe I will get around to taking pics of the groovy fabric I made, since this blog is supposed to be for fiber art.

What a slug!!

Someday I will bring my camera to the room where this computer is and download the photos I've been taking. I keep putting off posting because I want to add pics, but can't seem to get it together. So I have good intentions but we all know where that leads. If you want to see some REALLY interesting stuff from REALLY interesting people, look at some of the blogs on my list.
I have been working in the yard-early a.m. before the heat is TOO brutal, so I haven't been a total slug.
