Gettin' Old Ain't For Sissies

Well, you are probably wondering what happen to this blog. This winter I have been dealing with some age related health crap, which has gone on forever. For the number of hospitals in our city, you would think I could have had it all dealt with instantaneously-but noooo. My mind has been elsewhere for the last few months and then with the elongated winter we have had it has been hard to get enthusiastic about anything-especially when your art is made with plants-and they are all asleep. Now, there is a plan of action on the health issues and spring is here, it will get better-I promise!

I am off tomorrow for Best of the Northwest at Magnuson park (hanger 30) in Seattle, you can check the details under its listing in the column on the right side of the blog. According to the NOAA it will be a good travel day so I hope to get an early start so I can haunt some of my favorite places in Seattle; Seattle Pottery Supply, Pacific Fabrics, and Third Place Books. Set up is on Friday and it is a two day show, Saturday and Sunday.

In the meantime it isn't like I have just been sitting on my duff.

I am in the spring issue of Haute Handbags-with two projects! Go check it out!

Keeping an eye on the flooding river-I love the changes in the river over the year.

Making new things, these are the beginnings of beaded infinity scarves, come to the show and see how they turned out.

Experimented with red wine as a dye, this was Chianti, no Hannibal Lector jokes please!

I can't remember if I mentioned this one before, but I am in the winter Altered Couture too-probably still out there and available from the Stampington and Company website, I am sure.
Waiting for spring.
Any-hoo; now that we have a plan of action I will be getting it together when I get back and putting out a class schedule and show calendar. Watch your email inbox! Send me your info through the contact box on the right side of the blog if you would like to stay informed, I will add you to my list. Thanks!
