This and That.............

I arrived in Colorado on January 7 to much more snow than I expected. Seems they had an unusually cold and snowy December here, so I've been spending some time shoveling our driveway. The past week has warmed up nicely, so the grass and pavement are becoming more predominant.

My new studio is getting close to being in working condition. We thought the leaky roof had been repaired, but that's not the case. Fortunately, it's only in one small area. Once I get the design wall up I'll be ready to start spending a lot of time in there, in between the house renovation.

We did take a break from house remodeling to enjoy an evening of jazz and wine. We attended the Mesa State College faculty jazz quartet and wine tasting at the Wine Country Inn in Palisade, Co. It was a very enjoyable evening. The quartet is a very talented group of artists, and the highlight of the evening was a special guest appearance by Lisa Pegher . She is an amazing percussionist. She has been visiting several schools in the area, including Mesa State College. Her passion was evident as we watched her play the drums with such intensity.

The AQuA group has several upcoming shows, so I have a lot of work to do in my studio. Hopefully, I will have some pictures to post soon.............as soon as I can get a break from tearing down walls in the house!

I've just realized that my next post will be number 100 for me! Wow........I never thought I would last this long at blogging. To celebrate, I'm going to have a drawing. For those who leave a comment on this blog and my 100th blog, I will draw one name to receive one of my postcard quilts.

Until next time!

Well, sorry to have you back outside, but nice to see you blogging.

The sun on the snow looks nice. We've had a little sun here, but it's still pretty chilly. The snow is so crystallized on top it looks like feathers.

Congrats on the 100th blogaversary! It doesn't seem like it took you very long to get here already!

Your snowy yard looks like mine! I still have a two foot drift outside my patio and plowed snow all over the place!
