where have I been?

Spending days deleting photos from iPhoto so my hard drive had some room. It was FULL and I could not do anything.  What a boring job! Am still at it but taking a break. I'm up somewhat early today and thought I would catch up before coffee (what am I thinking?) and before the day gets away from me.  I

So...catching up.

Thanks for all your birthday wishes last week - they brightened a rather grey and dismal day - although the sun came out, sort of in the afternoon and the weekend was sunny.
Met my daughter Hilary for lunch and it was lovely to have some one-to-one with her - a truly rare event these days.  My daughters gave me a gift certificate for my favorite nail spa and I am going to treat myself to a much-needed half-day there when I need it most.  What a great gift!

One day last week, Jennifer arrived with her patchwork top all sewn together (by hand). Next up, another lesson in laying out the sandwich and backing and hand-stitching it all together. Uh oh - I'm afraid she's hooked.  Does she look happy, or what?


Thursday, Nov. 4 was the opening of the Exhibit in Montclair that I was getting ready for.  Considering the pouring rain, there was a good attendance and everybody stayed for the discussion of how we do our work (process).  Here is a good picture of the artists: all printmakers and all of whom work in layers.



Sunday was Open Studios - always great fun!  When I come up for air (next week, hopefully) I will post some scarves that I still have.

I started this post this morning and then got busy and forgot to upload it. So here it is, FWIW.

Glad to catch up - after writing this I'm going to clear some old photos off my hard drive - if I do them little by little - they don't get so crazy!!

I just bought an external hard drive and moved all my biz pix and docs there... can't bear to part with the pix!

Unfortunatly I live too far (France !) from you to go to your exhibition. I like your layered and printed work
