The Art Car has been a trans-formative experience! After years of wearing black with cool colored docs, I have broken out into living color! So…..I bought a HOT pink dress (from tar jay! <G>)and a cool coat from a vintage shop
The experience of driving an art car is exhilarating. Working on it was back breaking but the fun of having kids wave at you and teens actually look up from their cell phones and smile as they get off the bus is amazing.

Running errands has NEVER been so fun! I came out from the grocery today to find someone madly taking photos. She apologized and I said “No, that’s why we do it. So people will look and enjoy.”

I a wrote book on quilting years ago and learned a hard lesson on copyright. I signed away mine in the rush to be published. Now the company has published it with no other payment to me and not even the COURTESY to tell me when it comes out in another country and another language (last I checked: English metric, America Imperial, in Japanese, in German, in Austrailia by another publishers name and in Cyrillic Russian) To top it off, the book has an error that the publisher will not fix on the amount of fabric to buy for one project. It’s easier for the publisher to leave it unfixed. Being so royally screwed , has made me perhaps TOO proprietary. I rarely offer my work to auctions and worry about having detailed photos on the web.

After years of being so proprietary over my work, it is freeing to offer something to public with no expectation except smiles. The Art Car has done that!!
