There has been much lamenting in the last year.  Lamenting for the victims of the Pulse Shootings.


Lamenting for politics, politicians, election results, fake news, leaks and hacks.

(The Crying Liberty image is all over the internet and I am sorry to say I do not know who to credit for it.)


There have been happy distractions such as collage paintings.img_9401sm2



Hmm.  And some things I will not confess. img_8994sm2

I visited the West Coast.


Where I got to spend time with this little guy.


And I visited the Midwest.

And I made one of my twice a year trips to Texas.  Hmm do you call Texas the South or the West?


When I returned from Texas I hoped I was going to have a home to return to.

Thanks Hurricane Matthew for reminding me of the power of nature and for sparing my home and only temporarily wiping out beach access.img_9393sm2

And everyday the East Coast reminds me of the absolute beauty of nature.img_9227sm2img_9576sm2

I have been on 5 major trips in the last four months. 3 or 5 have been by car thereby  putting almost an additional 7,000 miles on my car. In order:

Florida –> Iowa –> Florida

Florida –> Seattle, Washington –> Florida

Florida –> North Carolina –> Florida

Florida –> Iowa –> Tennessee –> Florida

Florida –> Iowa –> Florida

I have been back home just over a week and feel like I am getting caught up again. I am finally back to my quilting projects today and should have something to share really soon.   I am going to try to get as much fabric play in as possible before the undetermined date in the near future when once again I will be on the road.
