It’s been an entire month since I have posted an Image Journal. Just what the heck have I been doing?
I packed up six boxes of fabric to send parcel post to the McColl Center for Art + Innovation. They were waiting for me when I got there.
Then I packed my bags and flew across the country to arrive at the McColl Center for Art + Innovation in Charlotte, North Carolina. Hello heat. I love you. I also love Trader Joe’s where I now get to shop for groceries. Doesn’t that look yummy?
I set up a new studio space.
I went to a mega fabric store called Mary Jo’s Cloth Store. It felt a little bit like going to heaven except I had to pay for what I wanted. I think it would be free in heaven. Right?
I made a new friend. Her name is Jessica Whitbread. She is my neighbor at the condos and at the studio space. Jessica’s art merges art and activism, and you can read more about it here.
I kitty sat for my other new friend painter Beverly McIver. Beverly, if Bona is kidnapped, I had nothing to do with it.
I have seen my long time friend Amy twice, but have failed to take her picture. Amy and I have been friends since we were 20 years old, and it has been wonderful to reconnect. I did admire her amazing banana trees. Aren’t they beautiful. We sure don’t have any banana trees in Anchorage.
I finished Haru and am kind of happy with its strangeness. Although I did have to eat an ENTIRE humble pie when I realized I could not properly quilt this piece on my domestic machine. If only I could channel Sandra Palmer Ciolino.
What have you been doing dear readers? I hope its good times for all of you.
