It's been such a long time since my last post, I hardly know where to start again.   So, I'll blow the dust off the surfaces here, sweep out the cobwebs, and shall jump in feet first.

For the past several weeks I've been redesigning my show display for a different format than the usual craft show table I usually have.  A representative from Carol Woods, a local retirement village, called to see if I'd be interested in displaying my work there. Each month they feature two local artists with a month-long installation. Mine will be in the dining hall inside locked wall cases. I'm excited to be participating! The show goes in on Thursday the 26th, with the opening reception on the 27th. I even have to give a short presentation, which I'm currently sweating about. Marble Man has pointed out that I never seem to have trouble talking about my work!  We'll see...

In the meantime I've been busy creating new pieces inspired by the early Spring weather

"Lavender Bouquet"

You can find more information about this piece here.

It's so good to be back!!!

my talented friend!

as always
when i look at your creations
i want to reach out
and touch!

sometimes, kate,
it is so frustrating
when i cannot hold a piece
of your work
in my hand,
cannot turn it over
to view the other side...


{{ i really enjoy
what you do, missy }}
