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.
