Deadlines Loom

There's one thing you can count on when returning from a holiday...there will be much to do when you arrive.  In my case....deadlines were the most pressing issue...and there were plenty of them.

Today I crossed one of them off my list.  Yeah!  My SAQA 12" Square for the Annual Benefit Auction is d-o-n-e!

One down several more to go....(deadlines, not Auction Squares...only allowed to submit one, thankfully).....more tomorrow.

9500 Miles in 60 Days

Judy Ross' Local Color
Home again!  As much as we enjoyed our trek to the West Coast and back, we are so glad to be home.  And, it's not just our comfy beds...we slept in a lot of comfy beds.  It's 'the girls' and getting back to our familiar routine.
Before we actually arrived home in Guilford, we stayed our last night in New York so we could be handy to the Western State Connecticut University in Danbury and the opening reception for SAQA/CT's Local Color.

Margaret Phillips and Mayanne Weinburg were the intrepid volunteers to chair the exhibit and then follow it with captaining the first venue.  Pictured here they are relaying their approach and sharing cautions to the following venue chairs.  Everyone was so appreciative of their work.

Our traveling exhibit is officially launched!  With color catalogue!  It is selling very well from the SAQA shop.  Kate Themel, trusty sidekick, worked with Betty Warner to produce a gorgeous catalogue that really shows off the pieces.  It has been selling very well at the SAQA Store and will be available at all the venues.
