here in Tampa...

Pat and I are having a great time in Tampa, having a day pass into Convergence and seeing the tapestry exhibits.  The ATB7 exhibit (which I was so disappointed to be rejected from) is absolutely AMAZING!  It's one of the best collections of tapestries I've ever experienced.  BEAUTIFUL works...all are amazingly done, wonderful concepts associated with each piece and the exhibit venue at the gallery shows all quite well.

I can't yet show the photos I took there (probably not supposed to,  but...) because I didn't bring my camera's connection cable...I'm using Pat's computer to post this.  I'll download those when I get home.

The ATA no-host dinner tonight was wonderful.  We saw so many old friends and put faces to many other folks we know through print or e-mails...it was so much fun!

On to tomorrow and all the wonderful things it will bring!

Hi Tommye!

I'm enjoying thinking of you having a great time at Convergence!
I've heard rumors that the next one may be here out west, so I might get the chance to finally experience it.

Thank you so much for your wonderful blogging about your ferns, your help with writing the volunteer article, & your kind thoughts you sent my way. All of the above helped keep me going through my "low spot" & now my spirit is on the mend!

"Ooh" & "Aah" over a few of those tapestries for me, could you? I'll follow along in my ATB7 catalog!

Hi Lyn,
Finally getting to say hello!

Thanks for the comment and I so much enjoyed meeting some friends of yours from the Southwest...will e-mail you privately later when I get home about that.
