Civil War Re-enactment -Oakhurst-CA
Ralph and I were driving through Oakhurst on Sunday and saw a troop of men walking with Civil War Uniforms on, and suddenly remembered that the Re-enactment was going on in our park.. We decided to turn around and go back to see what they were up to. Great fun.. Each had their own tent, and all their supplies.. I did not know that they stayed all night in their tents and ate the way that did in that century. This was all in celebration of The Abraham Lincoln exhibit at the King Vintage Museum.. The Golden Chain Theater also had a play being presented called the The Lincoln Assassination by Roger Clugston.
I am a mixed media fiber/quilt artist who loves to work with gourds,and jewelry. I am easily distracted with the next project, and have many going at one time. I have been teaching Fabric Dyeing and Beginning gourd art for many years. I am blessed with my own home studio. We live in the rolling hills near Yosemite National Park, in central Calif. U.S.A. This is a place of Inspiration, Blue Skies and Great Friends. I volunteer with several organizations,and have memberships in P.E.O., Coarsegold Historical So., Sierra Art Trails, Madera Circle Gallery, Yosemite Western Artist, Timberline Gallery and Sierra Mountain Quilters. I teach at my home studio and at local quilt gatherings.
