The newest SAQA Central Oregon exhibit is now being displayed at the Stitchin' Post on the new art gallery wall. It looks fantastic! I've given the artist's name and title of each piece below. Remember to click to see these photos larger.

Today is October 26. In one month I will be 50 years old. Sounds like a big number, but in the grand scheme of things it's not so big. However, I find myself reflecting on how I got here and the things that happened on the way. I probably would not be here without the marvels of modern medicine, that's a big one. I also wouldn't be the person I am without the family, friends and opportunities I've had. I'm feeling grateful for the wonderful things that have happened over the years and even the not so good things that brought me closer to my community. I don't want to get maudlin here, but I do want to start a little celebration. Now through November 19, I am offering a 25% discount in my Etsy shop. It's a good time to shop for holiday gifts or something for yourself. Please use the coupon code "Birthday25".
In other news, my Undercover Quilters retreat was lots of fun, though I didn't get much done. I decided to start a new project for a new challenge and it involves lots of little tiny pieces, so I didn't get far. I will post more on that soon.
