Art Previews

First, Twilight again interviewed all of the artists in this years Beyond the Fringe show. She's been posting them as they're completed, and you can see my interview here.

Next, these are progress pics, just a sneak peek at what I've been working on for the show. Nothing's done yet, but all of the pieces are coming together beautifully, and so far.... I'm extremely happy with everything.
This wall piece is titled "Mind Dancers"
This is part of "The Other Side"

These are little dancers.

Just some fun art to keep myself from being too serious, and remind myself that I do this because I love it!!

Date Night

My husband planned and executed a wonderful evening for us just after Valentine's Day. I took the opportunity to finally get some good pictures of him wearing his new sweater! Everything about it is a perfect fit, I just love it on him.
For our date night, we had dinner at a Five Star diner in downtown Albq. on old route 66, called the Standard Diner. It serves gourmet diner food!! The theme of his evening was "Americana". So we drove the length of Central Ave, (old 66) all lit up after dark, had dinner, and then went on to the KiMo Theatre. The KiMo is rich in history that my husband loves. The concert of the Wailin Jenny's, a very talented female folk/grass roots band. We first heard them in 2003, on Prairie Home Companion, one of our favorite radio talent shows.
The whole thing was delightfully fun!! He's such a romantic!! At the end of the evening, I had a new T-shirt, new CD's and an autographed poster of the band! We got a chance to chat with the members after the show when they were done doing autographs, and they are super gals!!!

Knitting for Twilight

Thank goodness Twilight blogs because I'm terrible at remembering to take pictures of my knitted stuff before I give it away, LOL. I made her a pair of yoga socks like mine!!

Winter can be a lonely time for all of us!! Especially when the weather is too cold and crappy to get together, or we're too sick, or the car is too stuck. Whatever the reason!!
It's good to surround yourself with things that remind you of your friends!! Remember you're loved!! That's what I tried to do with this hot water bottle cozy!!

This fun little pattern was free from Ravelry!!! I'm hoping this is helping my good friend ease her aches and pains when she gets done with chopping wood everyday!!!

Here's to everyone surviving this freezing cold blustery winter storm!! I'm sending warm thoughts to all my friends in Taos who don't have gas or power!!!
