On the show front, "Portrait of a Nude" opens today (Break a Leg, Jacie!) so at least the bulk work on that one is done. Now it's just maintenance for the run of the show. This is a good show-- sometimes I'm sick of them by the time they open but I am enjoying this one. Makes you think about art, what is art and what role censorship should play. The big fall project, "Aida" is coming along. I'm not where I hoped to be but that's why you shouldn't schedule two shows together! Expect me to be loopy in the spring when "Avenue Q", Summer Shakespeare and "Rent" all come back-to-back!
My August Doll Quilter's Monthly quilt to Leonie, pictured here , has apparently been lost on it's way to her in Germany. I think I messed up when I wrote her address and is sitting in some dark corner of a German post office because of this dumb American. So I'll be sending her something new this week-- I just can't re-make that particular one. :( I also sent off these lil' fall quilts~~
To Loretta for September (theme 'fall') :
To Judee for October (theme 'spooky'):
I received these beauties this week too! From Judee, for October. She very thoughtfully remembered my family doesn't "do" the spooky side of Halloween (but we sure do the candy!) I love the colors and 16 y/o Philip, who only has eyes for comic books, remarked "Hey! It looks like a wonky pinwheel!" Gives a mother hope. *wipes tear*
And this one arrived from Loretta for September--just beautiful! It is now residing proudly on the homeschool/dining room table.
