It’s autumn… the season of crisp morning air, warm sunny days, and brilliant outdoor color (and indoor color in the case of my new red hair 🙂 What possessed me? I’m not sure, but following on the heels of our new puppy, the Hubs might be wondering what next?! Ha! Variety is the spice of life – ginger, in this case 😉
A field trip out to the MSU Museum (go green!) to see the Studio Art Quilt Associates’ show, Earth Stories, has been on the docket since late spring. A SAQA show practically in our own backyard is an opportunity not to be missed. So today, after enjoying a delicious Mexican lunch where we didn’t discover until nearly finished that I had eaten Brenda’s order and she had eaten mine (blue corn tortillas were the give away!), we headed over to the show.

Each of the artists in the show created a large quilt, small companion piece and provided a binder/booklet detailing their inspiration and process. We found the booklets to be a fascinating glimpse into the artists’ work methods.
All together it was a little jump start for the anticipation that Brenda, Candy and I are feeling as our trip to Houston gets closer!
