Sunday’s opening was certainly a busy time. Lots of people, lots of talking, and lots of sales. I am very thankful to the many people that supported me in this endeavor. Of course my family, friends, and neighbors – but specifically Jane Recchio at UConn; Michele Palmer, and Rita Hannafin who were always there to assist in hanging the show and to offer their encouragement. Right now I am watching the 2012 Olympics and looking forward to days in my studio and the time to hand quilt a top that I just finished. It’s #6 in the “Gold Hay” series, a large piece 60H x 60W (inches) with my lines and lots of movement across the surface of the quilt. So what are you looking forward to, and are you watching the Olympics?
