Out with the Old

It took me several days into the New Year to put away all of the quilts and decorations from Christmas celebrations.  I enjoy having some new and some old worn things around me while I enjoy the Christmas season.

The large nativity set is all packed up in the stable.

The quilts are stacked to be put in the closet.

I’m finally ready to move on to the new year. 

Hope yours is fruitful.

Awarded 2nd place

Morris Graves Museum of Art in Eureka, CA, exhibited works from artists of different mediums. 

The exhibit was called: “Towering” inspired by the redwoods.  Of course, that’s right up my alley.  I entered “Richardson’s Grove” and “Miniature Redwoods”.

I’m happy to report that “Richardson’s Grove” won 2nd place People’s Choice award.  I always am excited when a fiber art piece stands up with paintings and other types of artwork.
