And I have been having fun.
After returning from the quilting retreat at the Ranch where I actually did accomplish a lot, I unpacked, packed and headed off to Stinson Beach for 3 days with college friends. To my very pleasant surprise someone else brought along watercolors. Three of us were painting before several first time painters gave it a try. They were all very successful. It was such a pleasure to sit around a table on a beautiful sun porch, on a beautiful beach, on a beautiful day, with a beautiful view and paint with friends. I found I had a silly smile on my face most of the time. Mmmmm. That could have been the killer Jalepino Marguerites that were being served. When I finally returned home to the real world a friend mentioned a sketching challenge called, “Every Day in May.” Each day has a suggested theme and we paint then post our work on a group Facebook page. What fun and what talent! But now that it is May 4, I am feeling the pressure to finish my May quilt. I’m heading up to my studio right after I do the dishes.
