Foot In The Door

Finally! Deb Svedberg helped me with an alternative way to get the pix off my camera...and it worked! Thanks Deb. She talked me through getting a quilt added to the slide show. See it? It's the last one titled Safari Quilt #1. Now if only I could get the Foot In The Door pix onto this danged blog.... Check out the F in the D site at the Minneapolis Institute of Arts. I've got a piece there!!!....among about 5,000 others.

Oh crap. Can't get the danged picture up. I'll try again tomorrow. My piece is called Betty's Bucket. Looks like a paint can covered with pieces of fabric including Betty Boop.

The best birthday present ever!

The best birthday present ever came from Sarah Gannett; she offered her services to reorganize my studio - clean it up and make it workable again.
Last Friday Sarah came over first thing in the morning. we worked our fannies off (only in the literal sense), had lunch and worked again. By 2:00 in the afternoon it looked so darn good that I was afraid to go in there!!! Sarah went off to her real work after five hours of the Englund household - how DOES she do it?!!! - and I took a nap! Boy is she good.

Here's the best part: I now have a medium stack of "to dos" and have already finished up one of them. I'm going back up right after church.


Thanks you soooooooooooooooo much Sarah. You are my new hero.

Now I just have to figure out what's wrong with my camera wiring that it won't download pix into this danged computer! It worked before. Something is wrong. Deb? Got an idea?
