Back to Art.

I think my life might be getting back to art.
Just maybe.
Not that the art has left completely, but you know what I mean.
I miss paint and glue and paper and, and...
oooh, ink and stamps and vintage pattern paper...

I have a couple of fun things to tell you-I have been itching to blog about, get back into the swing of things and catch up with all of you. I MISS blogging.

Remember this canvas?

Don't be surprised if you don't. I can't remember posting about it.
ANYway, I sent it in to Somerset Studio magazine, and it kinda got published for the March/April edition:

It's on page 126. Not that I'm noticing or anything...

The next news is that I sent these guys to be juried for a local art show in our area, called

and they were accepted!
So, now I'm in slight panic mode, making as much as I can before April 28.

TODAY, I went to our local sewing center to purchase a free-motion foot and the gal behind the counter and I started swapping photos off of our phones of our artwork and the next thing I know, I show them this little guy:

and they asked me to teach a class on it this summer.

I think we are all caught up. I think. Probably not, but I'll do more catching up this week.
THANK YOU for sharing this with me!!!!!
