Taking time to take a deep breath and say thank you!

I have been at the International Quilt Show in Long Beach, CA the last three days working the show with Gingers quilt shop showing my patterns. I saw so many great friends and met new ones! I had so much fun sharing my "Fabulous Folded Bag" pattern which was well received. It's so much fun to be able to make such a unique gift in such a short amount of time! They loved it! I can't wait to see what everyone makes with it!

Today, feeling a bit tired I decided to take my paints outside and paint my yard which looked so beautiful with the morning light glistening off the leaves and water in the pool. I sat and drank coffee while painting in the early morning sun. It is a beautiful day and it was so nice to sit outside and enjoy the beauty and thanking God for all the wonderful blessings he has sent my way!

This beautiful and delicious orange is grown here in Riverside. We bought a 25 lb bag so I had lots of subject matter.

Happy Valentines Day!

With Valentines Day almost upon us I celebrated with some of my students a bit early. We had fun painting lots of things red today! Chocolate covered strawberries and roses and rannaculas. It was a fun day that I was able to spend with friends.
