|Debbie & Gerald Tobola ... true friends of the artist.|
|Susan Fletcher King and Mary Ann Littlejohn in the front,|
Connie Fahrion and Linda Teddlie Minton in the back.
A fabulous Artist's Brunch was held for us by Angela Allen and Julie Maffei, art patrons and supporters of Texas artists, who just happen to be sisters. It was held at the beautiful old Menke House at Festival Hill. I understand that Menke House is available for weddings and receptions, and if I ever wanted another wedding, that's where I'd have it!
|Le Chef made a brief appearance after our appetites had been sated ... |
this was a very long-distance photo from the back of the room,
sorry for the blurriness!
|Some of the artists lined up before the grand staircase. Gerald and Debbie Tobola are on the stairs,|
and Julie Maffei is on the far right in the colorful jacket.
|Gerald and Debbie giving a brief thank-you to Angela Allen (center) |
and her sister, Julie Maffei (who had just stepped out of frame!)
We would like to add our thanks to these two generous women of the arts.
|There's Julie! Laughing as usual, and|
so, of course, is blurry in the picture.
Thanks again, Julie and Angela!

FiberVoices had our traditional Christmas meeting at Nancy's house, where we all enjoyed a fine lunch (her Rum Cake was only one of several delicious dishes) and great comradery. Nancy had decorated her house and tree with many of her own exquisite hand-crafted ornaments, as well as many that her mother had created. It was a treat to see and admire them. We enjoyed "show and tell" as well as a small-gift exchange. It was lovely to have a totally non-business meeting. After lunch we adjourned to Nancy's back patio to watch the deer and sip a little Spumante.
|Nancy, Susan, Linda,and Mary Ann|
|Connie and Mary Ann|
|This is a finely beaded ornament that Nancy had made; |
there were many more ... tiny, embroidered, cross-stitched ... and even some
gorgeous temari balls! (Thanks, Connie, for getting a good shot of this one.)
|These beautiful young does came up very close to the back porch.|
What a beautiful ending to our FiberVoices get-together.

Yesterday, we had our monthly meeting at Mary Ann’s home. We enjoy our visiting around the table with lunch as much as sharing what we have been doing or planning to do.
Oh, yes, we had a lots of show and tell, but I forgot to take photos of most of it.. One show and tell was Mary Ann’s newly installed A-1 long-arm quilting machine in what is becoming the longarm/music studio.

Recently we all spent a couple of days at Connie’s new beach house. Connie (and Mike) are always great host/hostess so a good time was had by all. As housewarming gifts, we each made a placemat with a “beach” theme. It was fun to watch her grandchildren critiquing them and picking a favorite.

This book (catalog) was created by Loris Bogue who is also one of the artists that participated in the show. Be sure to take a look. Instead of showing my piece here, you have to take a peak in the book!

Tonight was the opening for a new exhibit at the Houston Center for Contemporary Craft. This was the tenth anniversary of the Center, and artists from the 10 years of their Artist In Residence program were invited to submit work for this - the tenth anniversary. Lots of fun eye candy. There was fair representation of all craft disciplines - from fiber to ceramics to wood to metal. Something for everyone. The show will continue through September 3, 2011.
In addition, there is a show called "Creatures From the Deep" by Arline Fisch. This is running through July 30 in the HCCC small gallery. This is one that I really wanted to see and enjoyed because of my penchant for sea "critters". This was a new way to depict these amorphous life forms. Read below from HCCC:
Creatures from the Deep showcases Fisch’s use of knitting and crocheting techniques to create larger-than-life sea creatures made of wire. HCCC is pleased to host the touring version of this exhibition, which has transformed the small gallery into a tranquil underwater world, with floating jellyfish of different colors and shapes.
The Houston Center for Contemporary Craft is located at 4848 Main Street - easy parking and open Tuesday through Sunday. Worth a trip!
