still here but not posting much because...

I've been traveling! Returned from John Campbell Folk School only to leave the next day for Western NC for Guild board meeting, then to Anderson, SC to drop off work for TWS exhibit.

Next my husband and I were off to Desoto State Park in Alabama for week's vacation at a 1930s CCC built cabin. Got back, did a quick laundry and repacking experience (and went to a concert by Amy Ray and friends at The Crimson Moon here in Dahlonega), then I was off again to Anderson, SC for the Tapestry Weavers South retreat and exhibit opening. Yay! Received an honorable mention for a piece in the show there.

Returned from SC and then husband & I left for Baltimore where we spent last week. We had many adventures while there, including a couple of days spent at the American Visionary Art Museum. Of course, the Walters and Baltimore Museum of Art were included in the visit... plus many other things. Baltimore is an amazing city--our first visit but not the last, I know!

My tapestry calendar has lots of "blanks" now but is moving along and I'll post a new photo of it soon.

But now...

back to the real work of life... weaving tapestry!

wow, you were in my neck of the woods, I live in Mentone. We could have had coffee. And if you went to the falls, you were right across the river from my home. Hope you enjoyed your stay.

Wow, indeed! We had a picnic at the falls on the last day we were there... and cruised through the white elephant antique place in Mentone!
We enjoyed it very much. Next time we're going that way I'll let you know.

I know the feeling! The weeks fly by and somehow the blogging and the weaving are not happening like I would like. BUT it was worth it to see you and your work in Anderson!
