happy days

April 21, 2018

ready or not I’m in the studio for the weekend

just move the vacuum

for some reason I can’t quite explain it was important to finish my self-portrait for today

the ends are stitched and it is mounted

for my 75th birthday

me and the Queen – but she is older!

now I have to go and tend to business

      Aimee – congratulations on owning you first house/home. Only the studio got vacuumed, the weather has finally warmed up and I am frantically gardening. Building a deer fence today, they ate all my tulips and have now started on my new little Japanese maple. The vacuum is abandoned in the kitchen. Relax a little – I know that is a tall order – enjoy settling in and getting comfy. Hugs!

    Happy Birthday! Your mini-me is very sweet and you’re still that girl at heart! Glad your open studio went well too.

      Louisa – it is hard to believe so many years have passed, I’ve decided to start counting backwards.

    I missed your birthday–I hope it was grand, and a studio tour seems an appropriate way to celebrate the woman you’ve become. The tapestry is really cool . . .

      Kerry – I’ve been doing this studio tour twice a year for 10 years, think this was the best yet. Now wondering about getting a bigger tapestry loom?!!

    Happy Birthday to you both! Your self portrait is adorable, not just saying that! I hope the rest of the weekend goes really well.

      Hi Heather how are you and life on the island? I miss your blog. I’m keeping busy but wish the weather would warm up so I could start the indigo vat.
