Welcome to the New Year! I met it with a baaaad cold--stayed in bed for first 48 hours of the year, but am feeling much better. Not even sniffling much.
Today, being my feeling-all-better day, I got a call from my niece, Ingrid--she's in an Atlanta hospital with probably sepsis infection--a life-threatening thing. So, off I drive to Atlanta for the day. She's doing much better and I think she'll be fine. BUT!! I'm supposed to get 5 pieces of new tapestries to North Georgia College and State U. in Dahlonega ready to hang by holy moly Friday. Can it happen?? I have begun building the frames, begun cutting the foam core mounts, covering them with the diaper and cloth, but only one tapestry is sewn on board ready for frame. I will get up tomorrow and work like a dervish to get the other 3 ready to sew on, work on frames, etc. BUT, I am compelled to return to Atlanta to check on Ingrid again tomorrow but get back before predicted ice storm. I'm her substitute mother since her mom died 2 years ago.
Whew. A true race to the finish!!
Other news: I have both my 60" wide Leclerc and 48" wide Fireside warped and ready to weave. Am working on a 60 square inch cartoon, 6 epi for the Leclerc; and on the Fireside I expect to weave two, if not four more of my flower series-- each about 24" high by 10 or 12 inches.
My best wishes to all of you!
