Image Journal #15

Notice there are no lines on the road. Our harsh winters erase them every year. My first spring in Anchorage I was so confused by this. Where did the lines go? Where’s my lane? What do I do? Finally, I figured out you just follow the guy in front of you and hope for the best.

Maria Shell Image Journal #15If you are near by, I hope you will join me for this year’s Wrangell Mountains Center Spring Fundraiser. I call it a Break Up party. It’s out my house. I make my studio all pretty and host a sweet silent auction full of good art and craft. There will be food and drink, and music too. Won’t you please join me in celebrating spring?

  1. I love my feet! I bought a used Bernina 5 years ago and recently I pulled out all 10 feet and put them through their paces. I had no idea I had a 1/4 in quilting foot that would make every seam exactly the same! The party sounds great!

    • Jo Anne- You should really stop by for the party. It will be super fun, you can see how my studio has changed since the last time you were here! I love my feet too. I hope this piece of pottery helps keep them all in one place.

  2. Wish I could visit Wrangle Mountain but the closest I can get is the HGTV segment on Alaska which I am enjoying so much. Beautiful contemporary houses for sale and the scenery and wildlife quite extraordinary. Makes me want to exchange our SC summers for a winter or two in Alaska. What are the dates for your visit to Charlotte? Hope it is in conjunction with the Quilt Conference there. Plan to come for a day or two. Hope to meet you then–two hours away from Columbia by car.

    • You never know Carole. You and Sue should plan a sister’s adventure to Alaska. I am in Charlotte Sept 1st until the end of October. I hope we can visit while I am there.
