We Met On Line...Ten Years Ago

My friend, Lisa, came to visit me today. I met Lisa on line on a Jewish website and a small group of four of us still meet there regularly on our own small exclusive Mishpacha/family place. This many many years before I knew what a blog was! Were there even blogs back then I have no idea? I met Lisa in person where she lives in the bay area by chance ten years ago when I went to meet another member of our group then (he's no longer in it) and she chanced to be at the same synagogue we went to that day. It's taken us this long for our paths to actually cross again outside the virtual world. I took Lisa to the art gallery to see my art in the juried art show... We both really liked this pastel of a sewing machine!
and the watercolor with the shelves of glassware below the swimming baby...
She was very kind in her effusiveness over my Mono Madness mono print creation.
And she had a lot of nice things to say about Seeds of Hope II
We both found other pieces we liked as well.
After a nice lunch out we came back to my house and DH took this cute photo of us in front of MY HOME ART SHOW!
Thanks Lisa, for stopping by and I sure do hope we get together again before ten more years go by!!! ;-) It's been a very busy weekend creatively too. I cut two inches off that jean skirt I made my little grand daughter a while back and decorated the new hem. So now she can wear it without tripping over herself.
I finished the art journal for oldest grandson's 20th birthday.
I made a card of thanks to the two little grand kids for inviting me to Grandparents Day at their school.
And today? What will I do today? I'll let you know when it happens.
Anyone besides me care about the voting for my art quilt?
I'm still in 4th place but am now 25 votes behind #1. My 61 votes behind the one in first place with 86 votes!
The two who are in 1st and 2nd place keep one upping each other! It's kind of fun to watch.
Am I having fun yet? LOL
Enjoy your Sunday!
