playing on -

Atlanta started last week ravaged by the storms. Major downtown areas were closed. But the folks at BigSouth Volleyball pulled it off. The event was to be held at the World Congress Center, which gives it an atmosphere that cannot be compared to anything else. The WCC was damaged and could not be used, so many places and people pulled together to allow these girls to play on. We drove 640 miles over three days trips - bought 110.00 dollars worth of gas - and played at the Georgia International Convention Center at the Atlanta airport.

No bleachers at all - no folding chairs allowed - very limited seating around each court - I sat on the concrete floor for three days. People - I am old and today I can tell - stiff and sore - my hips are killing me. I took Friday off for this event and came in to the nightmare that is forgotten materials. I'll be off to make some deliveries in just a little while. (this is the real reason I hate to take off.)

This weekend we play in Asheville,NC. Then a week off. I hope to get lots done on/in the studio while the girls are on spring break.

I will give you another sneak peek of the "green" art quilt. This is my version of a vine. I am still twisting and shaping this before I attach it. Copper electrical wire - I really cannot wait to get this finished. It is one of those projects that I have found myself working on late into the night because I just don't want to stop.

Because my kids are my life - I will leave you with this picture of Miss Molly in midserve.

Have a great day --

Oh my gosh!!! I designed some copper branches exactly like that for a client's Holiday decor last year! (It was part of a proposal to a hotel) Isn't it fun when creative minds think along the same lines?!!! You did a FAB job - can't wait to see what you do with them!
