Welcome to my Blog, A little art, and a lot of Friendship
Wednesday, January 25, 2012
It is always fun when a friend does something extraordinary.. Sandra is a member of the Positive Living Center and lives on the other side of the Fresno River from us. I attended her open reception and book signing. In spite of the rainy weather the house was packed, yummy food, lots of locals and friends from the Valley. There were games, prizes, music by Joe Nelson and his guitar. The place was jumping.
I love the presentation and cover of the book. My husband and I took turns noting all the information that we had forgotten about that period in time. Sandee has written about many famous folks and some names I did not recognize.
Beside reading about well known people, there is a great time line on World Events and Popular Culture. It is a nice rainy day today, so curling up in front of the fireplace and learning more about that period of time sounds like the perfect afternoon. Wonder where I fit in, having been born slightly before the Boomers.
Sandee will be having a book signing at our local Book Store Willow Bridge Books, check the schedule and I am sure she would enjoy a crowd.
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.
