I am grouchy

And why, you may ask, am I grouchy?? (not that I need a reason). No e-mail. None. Except the spam, of course, which gets through because it is addressed to a different address. All of the e-mails since yesterday (4/17) have vaporized, never to be seen again. So if you have sent me an e-mail in the last day or so, please send it again. Today, Rachel Cochran and I drove down to visit Joanie SanChirico and play catch-up with show and tell and yakking. Joanie has just finished a fabulous new piece - well, almost finished - and we were the first to see it. Rachel brought along several she has finished, not the least of which was this little gem. Then, take a look at the closeup below of the center. Rachel is a wizard with beads and her work just glows. I am putting sleeves on a few pieces but don't have time to start anything new at the moment. Especially since it is bed time for me.

This too shall pass and the sunny Rayna will return, I hope. Sorry about the e-mail problems.

I wish I could remember the name of the Italian designer who used this face on ceramics - I've never seen it used on a quilted piece before.

This is beautiful. Rachel really needs to get a blog so we can see all her work.

Rayna, you sound like you need a chocolate fix!

Wow-- I love Rachel's work! Does she have a website or blog? I really liked the single bead under the eye as a "tear." :)

Well, I always call computers "wonderful beasts" -- was glad to see your post on QA saying all is now well.
