Old friends returned
Yesterday in my efforts to get all the work I need for my solo show together in one place, I went to the gallery that handles my work and reclaimed three pieces that fit my theme. I haven't seen the quilts for several months and I am amazed at how quickly I had forgotten what the work looked like and how much I liked them. So revisiting them was like seeing old friends again.
While I took a break from quilting I thought I'd put them on the design wall and take a photo of each and share two of them with you. The other one is too large for me to take an image of successfully in the house.
I revisited some other images of my trip to Portsmouth that I hadn't posted. They were taken from the window as I waited for the elevator as I was leaving the hotel. I think they are the best of all of the shots I got of ships, boats and the Elizabeth river.
I thought several times before I decided to put out into the world evidence of one of my weaknesses. My healthy eating habit went bye-bye last week. I ate pizza, bar-b-que ribs, cornbread with lots of butter, fried fish and ice cream. They say confession is good for the soul so I must also confess that I ate PEEPS. No, inhaled PEEPS. Lots of PEEPS. You see, I love PEEPS, yes PEEPS. I love the soft sugary yellow things with a passion that is only surpassed at Christmas by peppermint sticks and cranberry sauce and cornbread dressing at Thanksgiving.
I had to take a picture of these packs of PEEPS quickly because they were not with me for long. I also brought a road map so I didn't have to call my son to find me again on the way home. And my other secret is I love to listen to CD's as I drive. I have a great collection and enjoy every thing from Mozart to Womack, Marie Callas to Luther Vandross. Actually listening to CD's is how I keep up with how far I have to go and how much time I have been driving. I've got driving to my daughter Lyn's down pat. 400 miles from my door to hers, or 6 CD's that's it.
