Birthday doll...


I am still unpacking from the July 4th show and getting back into the swing of things. Off to a birthday lunch in Solvang for Sukey. Made her this doll out of some Peruvian handwoven fabric. She makes the best Frieda dolls and is always painting or drawing or stitching. And I have some dear friends coming to stay for a few days. I turned my art studio into a guest room- well half of it anyway!  So hopefully I will get back to my art soon, although it is nice to have a little break. 
The 4th of July show got a nice write up in the local SB News Press and I even had my picture in the paper!
Whoo hoo! Hard to see but that is me at the bottom of the page.
