spring & tapestries are blooming!

Spring is coming! And it usually comes quickly in the desert... bees buzzing, inca doves calling, cactus wrens chugging, & lizards creeping out of hiding to sun themselves. We will probably have one more chill before April ends, but temps are climbing & I am no longer freezing... last night we had to take the extra blanket off the bed! And, I have been able to open windows for fresh air & birdsong.





While most of our plants are still trying to recover from the hard freezes we had, a couple brave ones are putting forth blooms, the mallow & a few pincushion cactus.

My tapestries are blooming as well... I finally feel like progress is being made on cereus expectations.
















The most wonderful news of all is that I have been accepted into my first juried exhibit! My monochrome macro series: agave, will be included in Intermountain Weavers Conference's Fiber Celebrated 2007 at the Durango Arts Center in Durango, Co this July.

Lyn, love both tapestries, and I look forward to seeing the on 'in person' in Durango! The title for the cereus one is great.
Our desert here has about a month before it bursts into bloom.

Thanks, Kathy... I hope I might be able to manage to get to Durango somehow as it would be wonderful to go!
