Wow I it seems I am truly turning this into a yearly blog. I can believe that I have not posted as life as been a whirlwind for me this year. After my successful quilt show I have had numerous request for quilts but have not had the time to complete them. It's a jungle sometimes it make me wonder how I keep from going under. In and May I took a 3 week vacation via Mega Bus, Amtrak, and Southwest Airlines.
Places I visited were Atlanta, Fayetville, Atlantic Beach, Indian Head, Washington DC, Morrisville, Long Island, Philadelphia and so many other cities I can't remember right now. In July I started a new part time job as a technologist teaching senior citizens computers, Ipad, and anything technological in Port Neches, TX. I have met the most interesting people working this job. They have retired from some interesting fields, are enjoying life, they travel a lot, they party a lot, they have fun and I enjoy hearing their stories and seeing their enthusiasm when they talk about their lives.
In August I participated in my first vendor show and had an awesome time meeting people, exposing myself as a quilt artist and I even sold a few items.
In October I made history with my face being exhibited at the International Quilt Show as a FACE of A Quilter. I along with my Quilting DIVAS Red Hat Group and a pic of my twin Lenora and I also.
Tomorrow God will bless me to turn 55 and I hope to celebrate it with my brother and church family enjoying The Gospel according to Jazz.

I've Come This Far By Faith

My one woman show at the Port Arthur Public Library was a success. I could not hang all the quilts I wanted to due to space so at my Meet and Greet I delighted my guest with more quilts and a lot of unfinished quilt tops. I did a brief talk on where I started and where I would like to go on this quilt journey. I also talked my exhibit and answered questions.

OMG It has been a long time!

OMG I had not realized I have not placed anything on my blog since 2012. 2013 was a year for me. 1. Passing of my oldest brother Leroy James Colbert 2. Employment for six months @ Port Arthur Public Library teaching computer classes 3. Gullah Festival 4. Family Reunion 5. 35th Class Reunion 6. Red Hat Outings 7. Hawaii
