Road to California Redux

The Uber driver picked me up at the hotel Thursday morning to take me to the Ontario Airport to head back to Texas. This delightful driver, Grace, I learned has an art degree and ran an art department for a while. At some moment she needed work and ended up working for the concession stands… Continue reading Road to California Redux

My… Continue reading I find it profoundly odd

A Shout Out to Alex Anderson

Oh goodness this is a throwback isn't it. This is from 2008 from a Ricky Tims Quilt Super Seminar just north of Albany New York.

Live From Houston!

https://www.instagram.com/p/CVdT-fLr4kR/ Life is good. I am short. This is awesome sauce. Right before this moment I was kind of goofy dancing in that middle aisle between my students. This will most likely be the only picture not because I have no desire to take pictures of my students and their work but because my students… Continue reading Live From Houston!
