I'm backK

From down the rabbit hole of travel/teaching and 9 days, 24/7 with Miss Emma.  Three year olds are not for the faint of heart or for old people -- at least, not for more than a few days. - LOL.  I have finally recovered.  Here, a snippet from one of the more endearing conversations.  
And then, the (all-too-rare) nap.
She refused to sleep under anything but my rescued/repaired 1930's feedsack quilt.

During this past recovery week I have been getting my work ready for my exhibit in North Carolina, opening next Sunday, May 5.  Uh - I still have one piece to finish, which I hope to get done today. 
Driving down on Thursday, hanging the show on Saturday.  If you're in driving distance of Chapel HIll, here is the info.


In Retrospect...

I'm going to try to get over there on Saturday to help you hang. Can't wait!

No, no - Emma was referring to herself - when I said "when you grow up" and she said "when I'm OLD?". LOL

I LOVE the snippet of Emma! She is adorable, and I'm sure she ran you ragged! Best wishes for a successful exhibit, and your class sounds wonderful... someday soon I hope to clear up my backlog so I can go back and make more strip sets and squares for another free-form... they are such fun, and I love how they turn out!
