Better every day...

Thank you ALL for your good wishes! I am feeling better each day now. My peonies wave all of yours' their final hurrah, as they are about finished with their blooming. The roses are taking over, and my columbines are still going strong - which is late for them, too. The weeds in the strawberry patch are celebrating my neglect, 'tho my father-in-law, who has been visiting from Kansas, has given them some attention, and has been bringing in huge bowls full of strawberries every day. It might be time for another of my little cup paintings! That would be a good way to get back into the studio and 'warm-up' creatively!

(The tapestry segment above is the border of my "Croquet Coquette" tapestry, which is one of the Heritage Series pieces. My garden also includes morning glories, like the ones around the croquet mallet in the tapestry, but my morning glories are being dilatory this year. But then, the whole garden has been behind schedule, so why should they be prompt?)

Thanks for checking my blog again. The peachy pieces above and below the weaving are the selveges which are in reality the white warp. Funny how the colors change when you photograph them and put them on the computer.

I am taking a workshop with Joan Griffin next weekend and I will have two full days to weave. What a treat. I am still trying to decide if I will start a new weaving or if I should bring my sand pail and just bit the bullet and haul my shannon to her house.

Sorry to hear about hepatitis. I had it as a teenager, and I still remember how weak I was. Hope you are feeling better.
