Hi everyone it's good to be back.  Life throws us some curves now and again and I've been on a pretty curvy road for a few months.  Bought a house closer to our family in February and moved in March.  During the move my husband had to have a pretty major surgery.  All turned our fine, thank goodness.  Shortly after that we found out our oldest daughter has Leukemia.  She was in the hospital for a month for chemo.   That went well, but after she went back for the second round of Chemo she developed a serious infection.  She is doing okay now but is going back for the third round of chemo Monday.  Then only one more after that hopefully. Prognosis is very good.  Things are getting back to normal finally.

Mike had to make one of the bedrooms into an art room and that is ready to go.  It is so nice to be creating again.  Want to share a piece I just got finished.

Sorry the photo is not better, but I don't have the hanger on it yet.   I am getting ready for two shows in October.  Oktoberfest in Maeystown, IL and Apple Butter Festival in Kimmswick, MO.  If any of you are close to the St. Louis area, hope to see you there.
