for why else do I take photos if not to share them with you?

I can't thank the staff and volunteers at Pacific Northwest Quilt and Textile Museum enough for their kindness, generosity and the glorious job they did hanging the work.
Do visit if you have a chance - and be sure to check out the fantastic thread drawings of Kristin Loffer Theiss on the first floor, and also her website and the video of her drawing with her sewing machine.
One of the best things about exhibitions of course, is the joy of getting see, and even have the odd conversation with friends, old and new, who made the huge effort to come to the reception..
I can't thank you all enough.
I also got to spend extra time with extraordinary artist and friend, Carolyn Doe
and the marvelous Rebecca Mezoff , tapestry weaver and teacher who flew all the way from Colorado so we could share our delight (and ideas and techniques and gossip) about this marvelous thing we happen to do.
My heart is filled with Gleeful Gratitude.
and the rocks on the shore did not seem to mind me gathering, arranging and then returning them to the beach (I try to be a catch and release rock collector).
Or if they did mind, they were polite about it.
