Photography Show Opening

It was a successful opening. The food was good and everyone was very complimentary about my work.


I was determined to wear my new red shoes (love them!) even if my feet became numb! I managed just fine. My daughter and son-in-law took family and friends out to dinner afterwards. They toasted me and I thanked them all for their support. And I thanked the family for putting up with the mess in the house as I framed 34 pictures. The son-in-law is cooking dinners for a week to give me a break after all the Christmas cooking I did. My next projects will be fabric and I'm planning to submit works to all the juried shows I can.

Today I will watch football with Mr. B while I try to organize things on my computer. My new book is calling me. Thanks family for the Amazon gift cards!   The Best of Quilting Arts: Your Ultimate Resource for Art Quilt Techniques and Inspiration.  Notice in the sidebar that I follow Melody Johnson's Blog Fibermania. Melody has a section in this book.

Well done!
Red is your colour, and every woman should have a pair of red shoes - no matter what the comfort level!

Well I can hardly wait to see what you are up to next. What a lovely supportive family. My dd is trying to write her second book and it's hard to manage family and art.

How wonderful that you've put your photographs out there for all to enjoy. Congratulations! And lucky you to have such a terrific supportive family. I suspect this is going to be a stellar year for you - lots of new ideas, adventures and adjustments too - but all sound like they are worth it. Thanks for sharing.
