Yesterday in the early evening Steve and I returned from England to a mountain of work, unanswered emails, telephone messages, framing, junk mail, and a very angry cat. (My artistic mentor, Stephen Chesley, did look in on Shadow almost every day....but she was still mad!)
The trip was wonderful. Mathias and his girlfriend Laura-Jane danced beautifully. I got to meet Laura-Jane's parents; they are fantastic. I took over three hundred photos. We spent a day in Liverpool and another day in Chester. We rode in a cute 1830s replica coal train but missed the last "ferry 'cross the Mersey". I stitched on two more grave rubbing quilts, collected several interesting epitaphs, and made a rubbing dated 1659! So...there will be blog posts coming soon.
While away, the fantastic writer Dawn Goldsmith published my guest blog post on Subversive Stitchers: Women Armed with Needles! With a title like that, how could I possibly refuse to write! Anyway.....CLICK HERE to read the article.
Now....back to work....including mounting and framing all six recently finished faux-stained glass pieces!
