The picture above of me and Libby has nothing to do with my Episode #1013 of The Quilt show. I just wanted to show it to you. I took it with my camera on the timer, right after Jimmy left on Father's Day for his annual trip to Grayling, Michigan, for fly fishing and meetings and gatherings with the fancy bamboo rod makers.
This is Jimmy that morning, June 17, just before he left on his trip, snuggling Libby, knowing how much she was going to hate not going on that car ride!
This is a small detail shot of my newest piece "David Wax Museum: 3 of Potholders (Coins) in the Kitchen Tarot." It's 60.25"h x 76.25"w. You can read all about it on my website. I have lots of pictures of it there and links to albums on my Facebook page that show me making it. The David Wax Museum is a wonderful and amazing band I love. And this is my favorite piece right now, and is a hard act for me to follow! Yikes!
Our best crop ever of Evening Primroses started to bloom with one flower, right when Jimmy left! Now we have tons of blooms to watch pop open at sundown each night! It looks like time lapse photography! This only happens with the tall, yellow variety of Evening Primrose, and they are crazy hard to grow! I used seeds from a friend two years ago and planted them in peat pots. They didn't do anything last year, because they're weird biennials, but this Spring, with the wildly warm March weather, they came up right where I had planted them the year before, and I recognized them and didn't pull them out, thinking they were weeds. That often is people's problem in growing them: the plants look like weeds!
So it's Libby and me here, waiting for Jimmy to come home tomorrow night, enjoying his Grayling stories on the phone and packing for my July 2 - 12 trip to Spain, where I'll teach and have a solo show at INTERQUILT GIRONA 2012, in the city of Girona, on the Costa Brava in Catalonia! My new friend and fellow quilt artist Denise Labadie, from Longmont, CO will also be teaching and having a solo show, and we will be together, having big adventures together there in Spain! Yea!
Anyhow, I hope you like my Quilt Show gig! Peace, love, and art, Lucky
