Strange happenings, Mystery Card
Yes, it was my birthday,, but who is counting, certainly not me.. My husband and I decided to go to IMAX and see Harry Potter. We had never been and were pleasantly surprised, especially, that we were not blown out of the theater by the sound and music. Harry Potter was a good film to see in this theater..
And, of course, because "town" is at best 30+ miles down the mountain, we had to stop at Joanne's to use the coupon.. I was looking for a container to put quilts blocks in from a class I am taking monthly.. more about that some other time.. Instead of all the clear ones there are now pink and blue ones.. so for fun, I picked one that was on top and pink. Did not look inside of it.. Did not care about that part.. Came home and a couple of days later I opened the bag and took out the container, and opened it.. Laying in there was an unsigned Birthday card.. My husband swears he did not do this as a surprise,, after all I did charge it on my credit card.. The card is very cute, the hair design changes with the light.. Strange happenings..
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.
