My, how time flies!

I can't believe it's been almost a month since I last posted here!  And I don't have a lot to show for it, either! I have done some experimenting on a few things, and I'm gearing up to write some posts for "...And Then We Set it On Fire" , but they won't be published until July.  So I'm afraid I've been just puttering, catching up on non-fiber arts things, and the big news is we're preparing to have our kitchen remodeled!  I spent time looking at cabinets, counter tops, appliances, etc.  Today the cabinets and counter tops were delivered, the new stove and fridge are in, and we have a tentative start time for the re-do for sometime in early February. I am not looking forward to the 7-10 days of chaos while the old is ripped out and the new is installed, but I know we're going to love it when it's done, so check back for pix in a few weeks.
On another note, yesterday was "Road Trip" for me and two if my buddies, Joyce & Cinde.  We went to Phoenix to soak up some warm temps, shop, eat too much, and attend the "Chihuly in the Garden" exhibit at the Desert Botanical Gardens:

 Here is a sample of the Chihuly Glass Art on exhibit
 Joyce, standing next to a giant Saguaro - she's a little over 5', so you can see how tall it is!

 An incredible piece!  Fits in well among the cacti, doesn't it?
 A giant display of beautiful orbs... looked like a wonderful cluster of birthday balloons!
This cactus wren had a beautiful song... wish I had thought to try and get it on video!

I took over 60 photos there, but this gives you an idea of what we saw.  The exhibit will be there until 5/18/14, in case you want to check it out.  We spent at least 2 hours there, and really enjoyed it.  Here is one last shot to tempt you:

That exhibit looks fabulous. What a great place for glass art!

How beautiful and spiritually nourishing - both the beauty of the art (amazing) and the company of good friends. On another note my partner Brian is a "Property Brothers" HGTV junkie and will love to see your new kitchen
