Time flows too quickly

Wow, I can't believe it's been almost 5 months since I've posted anything!

Life has been full of adventures. In August I got to spend an amazing week with my sister (http://oddimagination.blogspot.com/). We spent a couple days taking photos around town - a textile show, wall murals, architecture and at the cemetery pictures of angels, mausoleums and other beautiful objects.

We also spent a lot of time talking, plotting art projects and giving positive creative energy to each other. There is NEVER enough time to talk & plot with my sister!!

In August I also adopted a new kitty. Mesa is still missed but I have to admit that Jasper Winston has many of her qualities in a rambunctious male form. He was about 4-5 months old when he was found and I took him home shortly after that. He is going to be a BIG boy, he is now approx. 7+ months, 10 lbs(!), FULL of energy and the terror of Teasel's life - though she has kicked his butt a lot lately, he may start the mayhem but she finishes it!

You can't really tell from the photo, but he's got an inch or two on Teasel.
His coordination however is still in the development stage.

Since August it's been yard work, house work (a lot of re-arranging of furniture and downsizing 'stuff') and work work. Hopefully, with the beautiful fall weather and winter hibernation around the corner, things will slow down and I'll be able to resume my ponderings in this blog.

Over the summer I completed my rain barrel commission, much to the joy of the new owners.
Finally, for the Fall/Winter season,
  I'm starting on some new figures for a swap in December
  and a staff art show in April. I also hope to be part of a staff quilt show in March...we'll see how the winter goes for that.


  1. You are so right! There is never enough sister time to plot and share creative ideas!
    Your photos are GREAT!

  2. Oh! I love that kitty!
    Cool cemetery photos! I have a group of them on my Flickr account. I took some in Summer and just recently and plan on taking more this winter.
    Hey! Glad to see a post from you!
    Take care, Cindi
