Panera is where I have been using the internet the last couple of days.

I ordered an ice latte yesterday and the lady looked at me like I had just asked her for a cup of dog food. She had no idea what I was asking for. She asked, "You mean an iced chai tea?"

So I had to kinda explain it to her...

Other than that their sandwiches are pretty good.

So yeah, Portland still looks like it's not going to happen. Things have been a little slow in the Etsy world lately and tickets are getting unbelievably expensive....

In other news, we get our screen printing equipment on Monday!!!
I am so excited. Also, today while taking out the trash I noticed a heap of silk screens in the dumpster!! One of the pluses of living in an apartment building full of other artists is the amazing amount of stuff you can find in the dumpster. :) So brave Micheal jumped in and saved 7 screens that hadn't even been used yet! What a great find.

So maybe, just maybe, this screen printing thing will be a total smash hit and I will become a millionaire over night and be able to fly to Portland as planned after all :)

Hope everyone is having a good Friday, and have a good weekend.

hi michele,

me too, i really want you to be able to go to P'land. I want to go to this artist residency in Vermont for a month next winter but i think it costs too much. but really, i am sorry this won't work out.

and i love both paintings. the thread reminds me of my grandmother who was a dressmaker and had some of the thread i sent.

we have been so busy lately that my writings don't seem to make a lot of sense, so please forgive.

a good saturday to you.

I love your piece with the spools of thread! It reminds me of my mom who loves to sew. And I'm looking forward to your screenprinting adventures.

I have been hoping to start screen printing myself, we will see if I get to it! You are a lucky duck to find those screens!

stumbled upon your blog and find it very nice. I love the spool piece. I am a fibre artist and really appreciate the spools. Also I am in the Portland area. You are really going to miss Portland come this summer.
