I've been feeling musically nostalgic since watching a PBS show the other night about Peter, Paul & Mary. I was glad to see Mary as I'd heard last year that she was really sick. They and M&P were important to me "back then" - hs & college. I'm listening to PP&M on http://www.pandora.com/ as I write. On quiltart list last week someone asked the question, "what do you listen to while making art?" Mostly I'm on "QUIET"; think it was all those years of teaching - I'm still making up for the excessive noise of adolesents.
Happily, the sun's out. If not at the sewing machine I like to be outside when the weather is nice. I can hear the birds celebrating; we got some much needed rain last week and the trees are about to burst out. Yesterday, we got a nice bit of outside time with Ashley and cousins.
Another note of celebration: Lu Peters and I won honorable mention at the Dallas Quilt Show for Urban Reflection. That's nice encouragement for us to keep working together and for me to get busy on other projects.
