Not Homeless Anymore!

Thanks to my realtor Chad Schneider of Keller-Williams I now have a sold sign in front of my house. And a sold sign in front of my new house!
A nice 3 bedroom ranch with a basement and a manageable yard.
Below is the breakfast room that may become the studio with access to the back yard. On the other hand the living room is large and could become a studio also. I will have to see how things fit together. It’s close to highways for trips to freelance work downtown and close to the horse princess.
The studio assistant checked the yard last night, there will be some training about the yard and limits, and training about the street, it’s a lot smaller space for someone who likes a good run now and then.

September Already

Time has flown by! My mom passed away a year ago. Lots of things have changed and lots of things haven't. I thought I would be in my own home by now. It has been an education, I always thought house hunting would be fun, but it is tiring and sometimes sad. Seeing houses that have been neglected to the point of mold and mildew. I am sure there is something out there but. . . well, I will keep looking.

I have finished another piece. Mairsy Doats (and Dozey Doats and Dads Are Topsy Turvy) This is a working shot (note the studio assistant inspecting the upper right corner). It is all quilted and has a binding. It has rained so much I haven't had a chance to do the photography yet.

I have been working a few days and had a few meetings. We have finished the details for Focus: Fiber. It is TAA's big biennial regional fiber show, held at Canton Museum of Art from Dec 8 through March4, 2012. I had a piece accepted. Yay! Now I need to finish the catalog for it.
