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.
