I told you I had two openings last weekend in which I had work. Here is the first of them. FANE, one of the groups of which I am a member, puts on a show every year. The theme this year was the alphabet and members were assigned letters. Some of us (me included, did two).

All of the quilts are 16" x 20" and perfectly squared up. Anything looking otherwise is because of my photography. Sorry!

We also each made a coloring book page to go with our quilts but the books were not finished by the time of the show. Hopefully I can show you them later.

It is a fun show to see and will be up until November 28 at the Mahopac, NY Public Library.

In case you are wondering, my second cataract surgery was a success. I had blurry vision and a fair amount of pain the first day, but by the next day that was gone and now I have great vision in that eye. Much better that the eye that was done three years ago. Everything looks so clear and crisp.

I'm sorry to say that I did not take pictures at the second opening last weekend, at the FairHaven Furniture Store in New Haven, CT. It was just so crowded and I was so busy viewing and schmoozing. It was a Surface Design show put on by the local CT chapter. It is an amazing show with huge diversity. It is treat for the eyes and will be up until January. My happy news is that one of my pieces sold. Sure like to see those red dots!.
