Quilts in an art show

Our local art gallery….Lyndon House Arts Center…..is holding it’s 46th Juried Exhibition and I was honored to have a quilt accepted into the show.

“Bridge Over the River Kew” hung proudly between other non-fiber art…..

The other quilts included were from local artists…..

“Pump Baby Pump” by renowned quilter Elizabeth Barton won the Nancy Lukasiewicz Award for Excellence in Fine Crafts.

She also had “Brief Encounter”…..

Elizabeth teaches many online courses and keeps an inspiring blog.…you should check it out!!

Also accepted was “Circular Reasoning” by Modern Quilt Artist, Sylvia Schaefer. Her website is worth a peekas well!!

I picked out a few of my favorites to show you……

“Ga. UGA” weaving by Shirley Cambliss
“Blue Wave” – folded paper by Rebecca Kreisler

“Growing Patchwork” – Oil on Canvas by Hannah Jones

Did you notice that ALL of my favorites were geometric in nature? Wonder why that is???

Summer 2020….week 1 review

Well, the first official week of my summer has passed and I am happy to look back and see all that was accomplished!!

On Tuesday, Michael and I visited a local Art Gallery (Lyndon House) and enjoyed seeing their 45th Annual Juried Show. We enjoyed many of the pieces and I particularly enjoyed seeing works by some of my friends.

from local quilt artist…..Elizabeth Barton
“Girl in Yellow Hat” by guild member, Terri J. (One of my favorites ever!!)
“Razzle Dazzle Maze” by guild member, Diane K.
“Circular Intersections” by guild member, Charles N.

After touring the gallery, we headed to our favorite restaurant and enjoyed seafood on the deck…..

This week I also switched over to my summer decorations……

These pretties were purchased in Australia!!

I had two friends over for lunch one day and Michael and I had another couple over for dinner on Saturday.

BUT….the most enjoyable thing of the week was my cooking segment!! I was looking thru recipes trying to find something new to make and came across a German Chocolate Cake recipe. It looked interesting so I decided to give it a go! It was complicated and dirtied almost every bowl and pot in the house, but the batter was beautiful….

….the icing was fun to make…..

….and the resulting cake was both beautiful AND oh so tasty……

I also spent some time in the studio and will post about that in the next day or so.

On Thursday night we had a gorgeous moon and I will leave you with that…..

On to week two……
