I haven't been posting because I have been feeling kind of down and haven't done much creating. Not sure what is going on, too much sad stuff around me I think. To top everything off someone stole my camera out of my bag last week. I am usually so careful and I got a bit careless the past couple of weeks and put my bag down when I was trying on glasses and getting coffee. The worst part is that about a years photos are gone because I hadn't downloaded them. I have the Vista program and when I go to download my photos it downloads all of them every time instead of just the new ones. I figured out I could e-mail them to myself and then copy to gallery so I only did the ones I wanted at the time for a project or to give to someone, hence, the fact that many of them weren't downloaded and are lost. I don't even remember which ones are gone. So, a good lesson - don't ever put your bag down anywhere, keep it in your hands at all times!!

On the weekend, I went to see Letters To Juliet - a good chick flick very fluffy, light-hearted and beautiful scenery of Italy- and Mao's Last Dance - a very good movie, a true story about a ballet dance who went to America from Mao's China. My daughter also got me a copy of The Secret of Kells. It is a cute cartoon movie about the making of the Book of Kells. Visually very artistic.

I found two new stores today, one a fabric store where they rent machines and will be having classes and meeting of the Modern Quilt Guild, at the other store they have painting classes. Mixed media and glazing and encaustic so I may take some classes, I really like the instructors style.

That's about it for today. Be back soon! I do visit you all every day even though I am not posting.


  1. I'm so sorry about the camera - that's just awful! I'll have to remember to be more careful myself (and also not to leave the bag in a hot car).

  2. Hi Leone, I just wanted to take a moment to thank you for checking out my blog, and to answer your question about Alphonse Mucha. Yes, under US copyright law, his artwork (with the exception of the Czech series he did in the 1930's for his native country) is in the public domain. Additionally, as our little silk prints are for personal use (not for profit) in our round robin blocks, we're not in violation anyway. :-) I hope you get your muse back and begin creating again! Hugs, Cathy

  3. I'm so sorry about the camera. That would make me sad too! Sad and cross, I suspect.

  4. Hello Leone,
    Sorry to hear about your camera, its awfull when these things happen.
    I also haven't been posting, so know how that feels, I have been very lucky to find full time work teaching year 7's, I am really enjoying it, but leaves very little time to do art work, after working all day, then picking the kids up after school, coming home and cooking, doing a little house work, and lunches for the next day, all I want to do is go to bed. But as soon as all settles and I feel organised and in some routine I will attempt at creating some art. Like I said in my last post, I may be doing my art work in class as I'm teaching the students art.
    I will come and take a peek at everyones art from time to time and catch up.
    Hope all goes well for you, Angie :)
