Testing, this is a test



My DD gave me a tiny Digimax camera for Xmas and I am trying it now. Let's see if I can figure out how to blog this scary image. I'm at work, so the "Prostrate Book" behind me on the desk is for library work and not my own personal health issues.

Had a fun art experience this week in DD's high school art class. Their teacher thinks that this Jr Class might like to try Fused Quilts, so I was their artist (sic) in residence. Their feelings for color and design made their first scrappy pieces very impressive. Hope to use this little camera to show you their projects at a later date.

This week I finished and mailed the second grant proposal of the month. Keep your fingers crossed for me so that I can go to Mrs. Mel's summer on the prairie workshop AND buy her fabric!

Somebody once said that people become artists
because they have a certain kind of energy to release, and that rings true to me.
