A little touch of purple

 I love the fading flowers of fall.
Each morning when I awake I look out into
my gardens and find inspiration.
I am blessed to live in such a beautiful place.
 Yesterday we went to Shipshewana for a concert
and dinner for my 71st birthday.
Perfect way to celebrate.
Great music and great food.
It has been a busy week.
I am working hard on my Quilt National entry.
Hope to finish up be Wednesday.
Than to finish art needed for my show opening
the end of October. Life is good.
Interesting and varied.
Have a great week-end.

Sunset at Cedar Ridge

I was awarded a merit award at Art Comp 2014
at the Chesterton Art Center yesterday.
This is one of my favorite art quilts and will stay
in my private collection.
It is a combination of paint and stitching.
I am pleased that the art competitions are accepting
fiber art now. It wasn't so a few years ago.
My daughter took me since I am not released to drive yet.
We had a nice visit up and back.
