I turned this piece in for photography on June 20th and that afternoon when I got back home, my world changed rather dramatically. My husband went to the ER with chest pains and shortness of breath and wound up having six way coronary artery bypass surgery on the 23rd. He is now recovering well.
Today I picked up the photo CD for this piece and am anxious to share it. A few of us in our guild, AQuA (Art Quilt Association), wanted to do a project with a more serious theme and chose "Atrocities, Women and War". This is my piece, titled "Where". We don't have firm arrangements yet to display our pieces, but a couple of possibilities are in the works.
For the month of August I was the "Artist of the Month" at a local gallery. This was even more special to me as this was the first "fiber art" show they ever put on.
Grandbaby Number Five - I'm in Love
On July 22nd our youngest daughter gave birth to her first baby, a little boy, Mason. He weighed in at 8 lbs. 2 0z. and 22" long. He was beautiful from the very start. This was our first grandchild in 10 years, so we were really excited!
