Sooo excited to have April Kelly's work in our gallery

Yesterday, April Kelly brought two pieces to our gallery for exhibit and sale.  I love her work. Bright red, purple and lime green will be gracing our walls soon. We are pleased to represent this new artist in our gallery.  April is an author and recently retired Senior Vice President of LinkedIN.

GrowNebraska CEO visits our gallery and studio

Great visit with Janell Anderson Ehrke at the gallery and studio a couple of nights ago. Janell lives across the state and just has not been able to stop in until now.  It was great having her visit and share ideas.  Incidently, she loved our place. Janell snapped this shot of me in front of Kitt's lovely scarves and Sharons art quilts.

Always Learning More

Fun day yesterday at University of Nebraska, Omaha.  Great presentation on doing business with the government and also socialeconomics presented by two very capable representatives of GrowNE, Heidi and Erin.  I continually need to brush up on different aspects of social media.  Today I have some of our wearable and glass art available for purchase at the GrowNE booth at the National 4-H Extension Agents Conference in Omaha.

Trailing of the Sheep Festival coming up this week

Can hardly wait to go back.  What am I looking forward to?  Photographing sheep, seeing sheep wagons, the herd heading down Main Street and of course the Fiber Festival....Exciting time.

Great talks by women from the West, Baxter Black and on and on....and maybe a few bites of delicious lamb at the foodie fest.

Bad Girl

I have been a bad girl...or a busy one and haven't posted on my blog since August 22.  A lot has gone on since then. Wedding in San Jose, visited the Textile Museum there and heard a lecture on scrap quilts. Very enlightening. Attended the Creative Felt Gathering in Michigan for the first time, took classes from some outstanding teachers...came away very enthused about felting more frequently.
