Best Laid Plans

So, my featured artist show at the RAA is scheduled to go up this weekend, and the hubby and I have been planning for all sorts of ways to display my mod house ornaments, but i got a call the Wednesday before Thanksgiving from the featured artists coordinator – the person before me was unable to hang her show – would I go in early? !

So after picking up hubby from the airport, I grabbed what I could and my good friend Liz and we got the corner put together. And then I sold 2 small art quilts on Friday and another on Saturday morning. I spent Friday and Saturday making a new set of “Branch and Bird” 8 x 10’s, frantically took some pictures (which did NOT come out well at all, but at least it’s something…the 3 I did sell I have no photos at ALL to show you!).

It’s funny how quickly some things can come together when they have to! We’ll re-do the corner this weekend…I’ve got some fun new things to get done for it, and I want to edit that big back wall – the spacing is too tight…but, you know, I don’t think it looks half bad!


I have 10 million reasons to be thankful. It doesn’t take a holiday to make me think about them, and I certainly hope I do a decent job of conveying my thankfulness to people. As I come down the home stretch to December and all its craziness, I’m happy to share a couple more exciting tidbits… Continue Reading

Home safe and sound

In the ER Thursday at 9:30 AM, home minus one appendix by Saturday at 3 PM. Logan wanted me to post pix of him in his new PJ’s. We’re happily ensconced in the Living room, having a Harry Potter marathon. I’m truly amazed at how fast he’s rebounded! And to be away from the hospital,… Continue Reading

One Moment: Appendicitis trumps all

It’s early Friday morning, and i’ve not slept much, but for a completely differnt reason than I thought! Wednesday Logan came home from school and barfed. He also complained of stomach pain, but I thought it was the trowing up. He didn’t eat any mre than a sip or two of water, but continued retching… Continue Reading

First up – baked brie! Andrew sauteed some sliced apples and almonds in butter, brown sugar and… Continue Reading
