Living in Paris

Living in Paris

I have decided that my dream is to live in Paris someday. This book (click on the text link above to see it on Amazon) looks like a good one--I have already read several on this topic.

Also, my Yellow Leaves at Tahoe quilt will be published in a book next year by C&T Publishing! The title will be "Innovative Fabric Imagery." They held a contest and I sent three pictures, they chose the Yellow Leaves piece (an excellent choice.) I posted it earlier, but I'll save you the time of digging through my past blogs and show it here again.

A local gallery has agreed to take this quilt and a couple of others to see if this kind of work will sell. Since this one needs to go to C&T for photography, I am making another one to go in the gallery. The gallery owner wants me to "tone down" the borders, so I am remaking "Reflections" and "Ft. Mason," also--she liked my architectural images better than the flowers. Here's a link to the gallery web site:

Out here in pumpkin land

Where I live, pumpkins rule. Every fall there is a huge Pumpkin Festival. It is fun to see the bright orange orbs appearing in fields all around town. Yesterday we went to Farmer John's, because he has the weirdest pumpkins and squash--his wife imports seeds from all over the world. Here's a picture I shot of his field (yes, there is a teepee in the background.)
