Fall finally blows in...

Fall is finally blowing in and with it bringing all kinds of "goodies".  So for the past week, I have been suffering (woe is me) from a hefty case of allergies. I have dealt with this by spending a fair amount if time curled up on the coach with a cup of Zengranny's tea, watching way too much television and  crocheting. These crochet scarves are full of warm romantic ruffles in firework red and eggplant. If you are interested in laying claiming to one, you can visit my Etsy story.

Fiber content includes 30% Mohair 55% Acrylic and 15% Polyamid.

In 2010, I created a series of glass pieces I referred to as  Asta de Toro Azul (the horn of the blue bull). The framed piece above became my "journal page" reminding me of the inspiration and execution of that series. It will be on display through December 9th at the Foundry as part of a SAVA exhibit.

Driving Home...

Driving home from a visit to Artisans in Fredricksburg I stopped briefly to admire this statue of an animal planted amidst a field of dry and brittle grasses. I had talked to several people at  Artisans  who where admiring paintings of cows/cattle. It gave me a different perspective and made me curious to stop and really look.
