I am thrilled that my piece "Spring Comes Late" is going to International Quilt Festival – Chicago as part of the "Affinity" exhibition by Dinner at Eight Artists, curated by Jamie Fingal and Leslie Tucker Jenison.

I was happy to see that my letter about the Tilly's mural was published by the Daily Pilot. I was adding my voice to the ocean of people who would like to see the mural preserved. The Irvine planning commission plans to paint over it. Here is the letter. I will try to photograph the mural so that you can see what I'm talking about. Locals can see the mural while driving along the 405 at the intersection of the 133. You can also see it coming north on the 133 (also Laguna Canyon Road) toward the 405.

We hosted the annual Westcott Christmas Eve brunch, which has been going on in some form since we were kids, I suppose. My siblings and I meet, with our families, and the menu rarely veers too far from custard, bacon, cheese fondue casserole, and fruit salad. This year my son and fam were unable to make it - life is hectic for them, having a very young baby just getting over her first cold. But they did arrive later, thank heavens.
When it was time to take the annual family photo, no one brought a camera! But we figured out the iPhone timer and leaned it up against a potted plant, lol.
We also miss our late brother, and his family, who live in Roseville and Seattle.
Late afternoon, we greeted Warren, Cia, Valentina and Lily.
Christmas Day photos next post.
