Front Page News

Susan told me that my photo was on the front page of the Ventura County Star, but I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw that a detail of my quilt, "Inside Out: Macrophage", IS the front page!
Wow, that's quite the portfolio piece. There is a very nice article inside, and more photos of the quilts. The reception was amazing, almost too well attended. It was so crowded, you could barely get near the art. I guess that's better than having nobody show up. I want to go back to the museum and look at all the art again, it seems I have a hard time focusing on opening night. I'll also be there for the lecture entitled "Maverick Quilts" with Julie Silber. It's a great show . . . I hope you get a chance to stop by to see it.
As promised, here's the newest addition to my garden art collection. Venus caught a Spark Plug bug! The whole thing uses recycled materials and it's nicely rusted. The fences were just replaced, now I need to measure, draw a site plan and figure out the hard scape. More dirty days to come. Unfortunately, I haven't had too much time to quilt!
