Has it really been a year and a half?

I’ve been so busy – mainly with local environmental activism and too many meetings. I had 3 art shows in 2018 – the big one was mainly a “retrospective” but still some new works too. It was so nice to see so much of my work in one place. That, and gardening, took up the rest of my year!

I had a great time at Fall and Winter quilt camps and got some focused work done on several “flimsies” (quilt tops). I made several fun mosaics.

I didn’t do nearly as much art as I had hoped to do. So far, I’m following that same pattern in 2018 but I hope to do more art and crafting. I hope to get over my fear and block around painting again. I have missed painting. We shall see.

It’s almost gardening season! After a real winter, which I loved – snow especially – the crocuses are blooming and it seems winter has turned to spring literally overnight. Above are some pics from the garden last year.

I’m slowly figuring out the “new” improved Word Press but lost my lovely Yoko theme.
