New Art

Just finished uploading some new art to my Altered Art Gallery. There are some new matchbox shrines, as well as some info and pics on collaborative Books. I am waiting for 2 more books that I worked on to arrive. One is "The Sky's the Limit" hosted by the lovely Tracy Roos and the other is one I co-hosted with my wonderful friend Penn called "Do Not Go Gently". Can't wait to share them!

I am still working on my first assemblage. I had some bits that I wanted to use in it that I have misplaced so I can't finish till I locate them. *sigh* I desperately need to get more organized. Part of my problem is that I work on the kitchen table and have to keep packing stuff up and removing it. If anyone else has this problem and has a workable solution, I would love to hear it. It's driving me nuts! I have one set of 5 drawers on wheels that I have stuff in, but two of the four wheels have fallen off . (Damn plastic!) I have my paper in a box with hanging file folders. Other than that, it is a massive heap o'chaos. AHHHHH! If I could only win the lotto so I could build a studio.....

A week from tomorrow is my guild's quilt retreat, which I helped to organize and am teaching at. No rest for the wicked! I plan to work on a gift for my gram's birthday, piece a quilt for my bed, (the blocks are long since finished-just have to assemble the top, a 1930's Aunt Gracie bull's eye) and make a wool stuffed pumpkin for my autumn collection. Anything else I can manage to get done in 4 days is a bonus. Following retreat, Jan who wrote "The Art of Fabric Books" is coming to meet me. I am *so* excited!

Okay, this girl must go get busy! Time's a wastin'!
