That's me at the Irvine Fine Art Center on Saturday, at the All Media reception. I am so appreciative that my small green piece was included in this very interesting show. Catch it if you can- it's on through October 24.

It was time to make another dog. As some of you know, I have another granddaughter coming in a couple months. That makes five doggies, and I've given them all away. The pattern I used came from an old Mollie Makes magazine: issue 18.

Yes, I have been working on quilty projects. I can't talk about them all, but here are some snaps that I can share.

I already posted this on Facebook, but my oldest brother Jim died on the 19th. He had been incapacitated for almost a year by a brain aneurism. We are surprised that he survived for so long; it showed a tenacity and inner strength. My niece Amity made a tribute on FB much better than I can do. What can I say? We will miss him a lot. We didn't get along so well as little kids, but he grew into a gentle, good natured man, always curious and finding joy in many things. He was a talented artist and an able teacher at a Los Angeles middle school. After he retired, he and his wife Kathy embraced retirement, taking all sorts of classes and activities such as bowling, ukulele, kayaking. They moved up to Roseville a few years ago to be closer to their grandchildren, and that is where we will be saying goodbye to him, soon.
Here are a few photos from when we were young. We always looked happy in those old photos. Maybe we got along better than I remembered.

As I said before, I am working on three quilts, two art and one baby. So here is a peek:
It still needs to be attached to the canvas frame. These are mostly Guatemalan fabrics from my centenarian friend Alpha, who passed away last year at 101. OMG, this woman had quite a stash!
And these are blocks for Warren and Cia's baby. I will be making several more blocks. Windmill blocks, template given to me years ago by my friend Lynda.
