I am still trying to catch up on domestic stuff after our long weekend of the Fine Art of Fiber at the Chicago Botanic Gardens. I took pictures, but my battery died before I caught all the pieces I would have liked to.
I had my 15 minutes of fame when my piece, “Herons” ended up on the channel 7 news or the Sunday version of Good Morning America-I never did find out which. Very exciting!
