************************************ I finished the fabric photo albums for my grand kids
by adhering big gold brads
and then winding thin gold jewelry wire in and out of them
binding the fabric pages together.
and thus it opens and lays flat like a real book! Can't wait to give them to them on Sunday
at their big birthday party in the park!
Our friend Cris, (of Cris, artist in Oregon blog) is undergoing surgery this morning,
the results of which should bring her back lots of lost energy
and renewed health! Join me in sending lots of positive healing thoughts & prayers her way! Get well quick, Cris.
I know you will be good as new real soon!

  4. Lynn, your pocketbooks are adorable.... and they really reflect YOU.....all the wonderful parts of all your varied interests in life.

    I keep forgetting to mention how creative your fabric phot album is!
    Your entire family will always treasure this.... it truly is priceless.

    Chris is in my prayers this morning.... I think the surgery WILL help her regain her energy and zest for....EVERYTHING!

    I worked last Sunday at the de Young for the first time since "The Impressionists" left.... the Mueseum was so quiet... they are painting and beginning to move in the "new" O'rsay pieces. I tried to "Sneak" in...but only had a teeny peak. There will be 32 MORE paintings though...and a little different serup - to match the changing time of the era.

    Hugs to you and "King" Henry!
