A Bear Hoodie in the Makin' and some Beautiful Flowers

Another unfinished one.  Sigh!  I am slipping!  Yesterday was Joseph's critique though.  That is where he puts up all of his paintings in a room and the professors and students ask him questions and give their comments and what not--this lasts for a little over an hour.  He has 4 of these in 2 years of his program, so they are pretty big deals.  The person whose crit it is also has to supply the food for the 30-40 people who attend, and that is where I come in.  So, bear girl didn't get finished, but that is good because otherwise people would have been hungry.  Joseph's crit went very well.  For some reason the past couple of months have been going well for both of us.  Maybe there are some muses that have decided to start living on our roof or something.

Edit:  Juliet is now finished!  You can see her and read her story here.

Also!!!!!!!  Yesterday flowers came!!!!!  They were from Alice.  Just a "Happy Spring" gift.  Alice is just the greatest.  She is the one who gave me her sewing machine from the future.  She just gave it to me, because that is what she does.  She lives in Santa Fe and has the most magical backyard imaginable.  She also has two dogs, two birds and four cats and they are known as the Yippee zoo and they have formed their own society.  Beast, the cat that is 22 years old, is in charge, and Whiney, the kitten, tends to him and bathes him.  Thank you Alice!!!!!!!!!!

How fun!

That must be a whole lot of muses in your home then! And Alice must be a wonderful person to know - sounds like she's one special lady. Congrats to Joseph!
I'll be looking forward to see a little bear soon. :)
