remember me??

October 10, 2019

It has been a rather busy couple of months.  After I got back from London I was off to Oregon to teach in Medford for the regular guild and in Ashland for the modern guild.  

When I got there, I smelled what I thought was skunk.  But no-oooo. Hemp and pot fields, ripening for harvest.  


Anyway, I had a great time and my visit was a treat on several counts.  First, the local hotel had two floors and had given me a room on the second floor. Ordinarily, fine.  Except that this otherwise lovely hotel had no elevator and I had a 50 pound suitcase.  Fortunately, Carolyn, the workshop chair had a gorgeous home with a guest suite so I went home (unexpectedly) with her.  That was a treat for me because she was delightful and I really enjoyed spending time with her.  What were we laughing about???

Also, since my cousin's daughter lives in Medford and I have not seen her since she was in college, I got to spend an evening with her, her husband and their great two grown kids. Bonus!! We went out for sushi in Jacksonville, OR -one of the cutest towns I have ever seen.  Fell in love with this wall - but I am a sucker for old advertising.




Finally, my really big treat: I got to stay with my old friend Patricia Smith, who now lives in Ashland. It was wonderful. And she is wonderful.  I owe her a thank-you package but have been dealing with STUFF since I got back.  I suppose STUFF is what makes life interesting - but I could do with a little bit of boring. LOL.


Speaking of boring... I have been working on these triangles for what feels like a lifetime.  I had something put together and then realized it didn't work, so I apart the parts that made it look super-blah.  I have been auditioning this with a variety of backgrounds and that will be my next decision.  I think I've gotten triangles out of  my system for now.

 This little baby is done, except for the facing.  I think it's about 11 x 14 or some such. It needs a name.  What does it make you think of?

 You may remember that this is how it started.



I have been writing this for 3 days, between doctors' appointments and other non-negotiable appointments,  So for now, time to take a break and continue in the next post.
