August has beenÂ busy month! My last multiple day engagement for Guild programs/workshop in Oklahoma happened and it was a fun trip with lovely ladies.Â Even fitted in some fabric shopping, though we did not find the one I was looking for.Â One more trip – next week to Kansas City, then I will be officially retired!!
We went to Wichita over the weekend for the Opening Reception of the Wichita National All Media Craft Exhibit where “Snow Buddies” is being exhibited. It has a great spot , well lighted where you see it as you enter the gallery; looks good!
While we were in Wichita we visited the Botanic Gardens, The Indian Museum and the Zoo.Â The weather was near perfect and I was exhausted by the time we got back home! But it was fun!
Since coming back I have finished the Heron top using some of the fabrics that I found that looked like they might have possibilities.Â I un-sewed some of the previous work to insert the new fabrics and I think it is going to be OK.Â
Yesterday I squared it up and selected a backing fabric but have not yet layered it for quilting.Â I think another deadline has squeezed in that will need my attention first!
News came that all four of my entries to the Visions of the Flint Hills Art Benefit and Sale at the Buttonwood Gallery in Kansas City were accepted.Â “Harrier Hunting”, “Prairie Power”, “Drifted”, and “Grasslands” will be there.Â This is an art exhibit so it is always gratifying when my quilts are recognized as art! The opening reception is on Oct 2 and the show runs through Nov 27.Â Sales benefit the Friends of Konza Prairie.Â Be sure and check it out if you are nearby.
