So, WAM 2011 is officially on! I have a small piece hanging in E&C Barber Shop--small, yes, but it took me about 12 hours. My mother-in-law was visiting, so she helped me a ton, teaching me new techniques: freezer paper applique, machine quilting, making all those points come together in the center of the circle. The colors go with what will eventually be the color scheme in Simon's room, so that's where it will go when the show is over.
There's a reception on Thursday, October 6th from 6-8pm at the Senior Center for artists, businesses, sponsors, volunteers and fans. Food and drink--try to make it if you can!
In other news, I'm on week 5 of the C25K program! That means that by the end of this week I'll be running 20 minutes or about 2 miles without stopping. I've started physical therapy for some old knee problems to help me make it to the 5K without injury.
I moved to Malden, MA in April of 2006. I'm trying to get to know my new community, so I'm involved in lots of volunteer efforts around town. Most of my free time is spent on knitting and gardening. And watching Netflixed episodes of Babylon 5.
