 Well hello there. Time has slipped away so fast this year. I was so busy teaching sewing at a darling little place not to far from where I live. I guess my blog suffered in silence.
So here are all of my up dates.
Iv'e been  chilin back taking art classes on line with some of my favorite artist. The part I think is great is one can stay in there PJ's and if you have pets they think it's there special time with you !
Now and then I try to get out of this sleepy little town and go on  short road trip to special art retreats to create and visit old friends. Its good of the mind and soul. I'm not getting any younger and my favorite saying is "Time is Running Out " I even have this painted on my Toms.
I am still sewing , but not as much. I like to incorporate it into my art now.I'm contemplating on giving a two day a week two hours a day sewing classes. We will see ??? It's a long winter here and I do not like to deal with the snow being house bound . My pets like me here with them !I started sewing little bow ties for dogs and cats its on one of my other blogs http://sewfurry.blogspot.com. Our new member to the family Charlie was my inspiration.
 See you over there for  more updates . I have some tried and true recipes on my recipe blog . It's under view all blogs " Let The Pots and Pan  Dance."
I guess you can call me a blog hoarder ! Really I need to try a way of incorporating all into one. Any suggestions ??

Time for a Rest


Petaluma Camp

It was Hot and there were dog's barking in the back round, did we care? Hell No!We were there to create and have fun.And Fun we had.!!
 I had such a good time at the K.O.A Art Camp with Lisa Super and friend. I don't know where to start. The Ladies sooo talented and nice. The food provided by her and her husband  YUM.You didn't go hungry.  Her oldest son came to help and was a delight to be around. You could actually have a conversation with him. Very polite .He reminded me of my grandson Matteo.
The restaurants we went to A+.Well lets just say  it would be worth a drive on a weekend just to going back  to eat there. And all  the darling little shops lined the streets. This was a striving little town. Once known as Petaluma the Chicken capital (or maybe that was the egg capital) . I had a step great grandmother Nona Maggora that had a chicken farm on Main st. in the year 1940's to 1970's. Like everything else thing grow and change.
