My fall flowers and the beads that they inspired.
These are going on some neck pieces and brooches.
|New earrings. Everything is flowers and leaves around here right now, it seems. But I'm not complaining!|
So what's been happening? We had a lovely evening with this man at a lovely mountain venue.
Then there was a great trip to Washington state this summer, and it was great to see friends along the way, and my in-laws in the Seattle area, in addition to some local sights, and of course, The Gathering, which was fabulous as usual. Every year I seem to "know" more and more attendees, and it's so much fun to catch up with them, and of course, to fondle each others glassy creations, a.k.a. The Gathering Handshake.
Our dog has now had his second knee operation, and in another few months will be happily active again. The girls are doing fine, and either we have had the Mother of all hen fights today or molting has begun.
But I digress. So what's new? Weeeellll, I've got a wonderful (she gushes) new studio and have been trying to find my rhythm there. I still need to just pick a date for my studio warming party, and get my teaching act together, but everything is up and working and I'm loving it.
Here are a couple of shots of the inside.
Another dream of mine was realized in September when we took the boat across the bay to "watch" a Giants' game from McCovey Cove, outside of AT&T park. The people watching was phenomenal, and the Gigantes won. A very good day indeed.

|????? He actually drove this thing all the way across SF Bay. I guess it's one of these, maybe some kind of overpowered surfboard, or maybe it brews beer, I don't know.|
