Getting Back Into The Swing of Things

I'm finally seeing a light at the end of my long tunnel of home repairs and upgrades.
Since my last post my computer crashed and I had to get a new one.  The new furnace has been installed, the patio floor in back is completed, and a myriad of other things has been done.  WHEW!!!!!
While I was away from blogging I did get to go to Balboa Park for the "Bold Expressions" show of quilts collected by an African American collector .  Her name is Corrine Riley.  It was an awesome display of quilts.  I wanted to take pictures because they were allowing you to do so, but I did not want to try and figure out how to turn the flash off.  (Can you imagine?)
I did, however take pictures of some of the buildings around the Mingei International Museum.  I plan to do an art quilt depicting one or two of the buildings.  You know, my interpretation of them.
My patio grout painting out back took a little over a week, since I had to seal the concrete.  Here are pictures of the trip to the museum and the patio.


  1. Greetings from Tunisia! Just stopped by while hugging the AC and trying to beat the heat. I'm enjoying your blog and your art quilts are gorgeous--beautiful use of color and great design. Glad you came back to blogging from your summer hiatus.
    best, nadia

  2. hahaha, i had the same experience with my camera some years ago while visiting a local musuem...since then i've learned to turn off the flash. I'm happy you are back and that the home repairs didn't get the best of you!
