Oh Lucky Day!

I Need to Celebrate

  1. I found a tiny piece of my watch bracelet, it was attached to a canister of coconut from my mom's condo! How fortunate is that!
  2. I delivered a commissioned graffiti style art quilt on canvas. Its going to Saskatoon to a young lady. I had fun making this piece. 
  3. I picked up my art pieces from a friend. They had been in a show in Georgetown and I found out I sold an older floral piece I had contemplated in cutting up and recycling. 
  4. I am looking forward to see what happens next.
  5. Alas, I can't find a photo of that Art Quilt.

Long Time Away

Dear Friends,
I have been all consumed by many things these days. One is above. This is my new puppy, O'Guy ( Oggi). The name was my husband's idea. He keeps us very busy these days.
Next, I got an iphone! Wow a computer in my hand and I am following many artists on Facebook. That keeps me busy.
Taking my turn to visit my mom at the retirement home and helping to care for her needs is all consuming and a worry.
In the spring I did a huge commission of fibre art that took care of all my art time. Hugely rewarding.
Summer sees us busy looking after the family cottage. I did venture to Muskoka for an art retreat in July. We did Indigo dying in a lovely setting.
I am  busy sewing for studio tour these days, finishing up projects that I can sell.
I am  really retired now I have given up my school teaching job, I will miss it. On the other hand, I will do some teaching at the Art centre. I will continue to teach embroidery classes at my home that I started in May until I got Shingles!
So that is it in a nut shell!
More to come.

Last Photos of my little Oatis

 At home in January, waiting for his steak bone.

 Photo with his big brother, Mattie

 At Cedar Key FL, still feeling healthy

Last photo I took of Oatis, not feeling well. Getting his cuddles.

Rest in Peace, my little boy. We miss you so much. You were too young to go.
