|Adding embroidery to the fused shapes.|
My mandala and I are back from Los Angeles, where I found a lot of nature's colors and shapes that reminded me of the mandala.

I also immersed myself in two art quilt exhibits. I couldn't take photos in either, but here is a little tease. Above, I'm at the entrance to "Quilt Visions 2012: Brainstorms" at the Visions Art Museum in San Diego with Del Thomas. Del is a blogging friend who I finally met in person at the gallery, which just happens to be named after her. You can see the little sign way above us that says The Del Thomas Gallery. For more information, check out the web site at http://www.quiltvisions.org/
Del gave me a fabulous tour in which she "introduced" me to each quilt, giving me just enough information about each quilt and artist to whet my appetite for closer examination. I bought the beautifully photographed book of the exhibit (and of the 2010 and 2008 exhibits) and savored the show all over again that night in bed.
