What I Did on My Summer Vacation

Many photos, few words...

One of my pieces made the Rockford Art Museum's Summer newsletter - it's for the upcoming Greenwich Art Fair, September 15th and 16th.

Revisiting a series of art quilts that I started a few years ago. Here are three new ones. They are called "Here Comes the Sun" (doot 'n doo doo). 12x12 inches - great fun to create.

Jason in front of the White House at the Lincoln Museum.

With Mr. and Mrs. Douglas.

Chatting with soldiers.

Falling asleep on John Wilkes Booth's shoulder???

Putting in a new kitchen floor. Jason scraping up glue and smoothing out some skimcoat.

Jeff laying down tile. Just some edges and the pantry closet floor to do.

Something new for me to dye! Natural osnaburg, cut into 5 fat quarters. Tossed them in a plastic bin, poured some colors, added a little soda ash, waited a bit, poured more color on. When batched, washed, and dried, I ripped the pieces into 5 inch strips. Pinned them to the design wall to see what I had. Cut into smaller strips and sewed together. Hmmmm...

Well, that was our vacation.
