"Never find fault with the absent." - Proverb

And so I beseech you to forgive my long absence!  School starts early here in Texas and with summer ending and a new school year beginning I have been preoccupied with many duties and delightful distractions.

Mid August was time to put behind me those crazy and not so lazy days of summer.  Gone are the hours for lolly gagging in La Grange with my talented and sweet hearted college buddy.

Be sure to attend the International Quilt Show  at the George R. Brown Convention center in Houston, TX on Nov. 1-4, 2012.   You will see Sherri's  Austin Art Group's work on exhibit.  Don't miss it!  They are award winning! 

No more trips to the airport in the near future...

No more roaming with camera in hand...

Gone are the days of lingering in China Town...

Loitering in art galleries...

Time to say good bye to summer and gear up for another exciting school year...

which I always begin with an "all school back to school project."  And this year the hands have it!  All 131 of them!
