I felt inspired to blog this morning...

Wow, what a change in the weather!  It was in the mid-fifties upon waking up this morning and it's still very cool and breezy.  Fall is on its way!  We really do need rain though and the smattering that we got yesterday just wasn't enough.

I just wanted to show you all the work of a fantastic quilt artist who lives and works in our town.  Her work may not be everyone's cup of tea, it's certainly not traditional or conservative quilting, but I find it gorgeous and inspiring.  See the work of Susan Shie here:

I am missing my daughter very much, but we text each other on a regular basis.  I love texting!  She and her roommate were able to rearrange their room so that it is much more livable.  They did have to sacrifice their desk shelves, which still kind of irks me.  Dear long lost son has started his senior year of college as an art major and will be knee deep in graphic design, intermediate ceramics and art history.  When it rains it pours.  He finally landed a bicycle mechanic job in a local shop and was also offered a work study position in the art department.  Poor kid...looks like he won't be sleeping much this year! 

Hope everyone has a great weekend!

That is one amazing quilt! Like you said, it may not be everyone's cup of tea but you have to admire the work that went into it!

I meant to comment on your original post about the dorm room but something must have pulled me away from the computer. I am very familiar with that disappointed feeling regarding the over crowded room. We were assured my daughter would be in the 'nice' dorm if we got our money in early. We paid early but she still landed in the older, smaller dorm. We had a similar layering of furniture going on plus moved things into the living room part of the suite to fit the basics in the room. They made the best of it, though. Hope freshman year continues to go well.
