Chocolates for My Valentine

This Piece will be hanging at the Chestertown River Arts Gallery during the month of August as part of the Epicure Exhibit.

It’s the first time I’ve ever entered a piece of Fiber Art in an exhibit. Pretty exciting!!

And on September 11 you can come to Chestertown for the River Arts Fair called Imagine. I will be showing my work, alongside my husband Tom and his photos, in our own booth.

We had two busy months in June and July. After losing Tom’s dad suddenly to a heart attack and then clearing out his home of 45 years we were all pretty bummed out.

But then came some good news, our daughter and her boyfriend got engaged! The wedding is planned for July 1 of next year and will be held in Virginia at a local winery. I had better get to work on the wedding quilt!

Just this past weekend my husband and I celebrated our 45th wedding anniversary…yes we were babies ( just out of college) when we were married.

I’m going to take bits of my gown and make some wedding day jewelry for our daughter to wear as her “something old”. And maybe I’ll even create a ruffled collar for their dog, who will be part of the ceremony.

I did get some work done for me…I moved along the Beach Medallion Quilt.

And I got the month of May done on the Temperature Quilt…wow I’m two months behind.

This past week I worked on a group quilt that my guild will give away to a local hospice center. We each made a block using some “cheddar” fabric that was purchased for another quilt but just did not work out.
