A bit of excitement, and nervousness!

I’ve been quiet on the blog lately – that’s because I’ve been having so much fun!  We got back from Australia via a week-long visit to the Big Island of Hawaii (to celebrate a Zero Birthday – AUGGHHH!) last week. I immediately left for my annual quilt retreat, where I started the last quilt I need for my upcoming gallery show.  It’s going well, although slowly.

Herewith is your invitation to come and see what I’ve been working on for the last year and a half. You won’t see these quilts on tour for a while, but you could fly to Victoria BC (a beautiful place even at this time of year) to see them all hanging together! We hardly have winter here, so don’t be daunted by weather.

This is a challenge I’ve issued to two very good friends: Eileen McGann is a painter, and Louise Parsons is a potter.  In the last year and a half, we have each created 10 pieces loosely relating to the theme of “Refractions”.  It’s going to be beautiful and exciting and – yes – daunting, all at the same time!  This is the first time I’ll have put prices on my quilts to sell to complete strangers.  Wish me luck!  If I sell enough, I’ll be buying a new Murphy bed for my studio/guest room!

If you can’t make it, I will be putting up pictures of the opening next week.
