Without phone or Internet (DSL) I was unable to post here after I got home (although I could post on FB from my iPhone)-- but after 3 days the phone company threw a switch and our dead line came back to life.  Don't ask!  No wonder people are getting rid of their Verizon land line service in droves.

The last day in London, Marlene and I took her adorable grandsons to see the Picasso exhibition at the Gagosian Gallery. Work was from his Mediterranean years. They did not allow photos but here is part of the exhibit on their website.  It was terrific because with the exception of 2 pieces (which are in a Picasso poster book I own) I had never seen any of the work on display.  Much of it was whimsical and the kids enjoyed it, too.

My fabric ironing, in an attempt to clear the decks in my sewing room, stopped and then started again at 3:am when I woke up (still on U.K. time, I suppose).  I have been working at home for a variety of reasons and have brought home tons of fabric that normally reside in my studio.

Marlene and I had a little time in her wet studio - and did some printing and a fabric exchange to see what each of us would do with the other's fabric.  A challenge I look forward to...when I come up for air.

In the meantime, this room looks almost neat and I am going to reward myself by putting my feet up to read for a while.  I'm in the middle of Pat Conroy's South of Broad and it's one of those books I don't want to put down and don't want to finish.

Had a ball looking through this website. I was quite impressed by this exhibition of the genius, the suiting display with the dark grounds and glass cabinets. Thanks for sharing!

Yes, thanks for the exhibit link. I can see why the boys enjoyed it so much. What fun!
