Sister Day

For the last 6 years my three sisters Deborah, Susan, Amy, and I have been gathering in the summer in RI for our annual "Sister Day" to coincide with Sue's yearly trek back east from CA. We exchange gifts, eat good food, and generally make a nice day of it. We always invite our mother, Edna, and this year we were joined by my colorful grandniece, Patience Rose. Debby gave everyone the matching bracelets shown here, which she purchased in a new shop in Westerly, RI, that is owned by the wife of one of our nephews.

(I will have to get the name of her shop!)

My heart can hardly hold everything that has occured this past week. It is going to take some time to process. Let's just say that I feel very blessed to have such a loving family.

I am glad to be back in Maine, though, and will be cleaning and organizing my studio this upcoming week, getting ready for some new art ventures!

Hi Brenda

Thanks - I'm glad to be back.

Yes - Downeast Maine provides quite an amazing setting!

I love your new pillows - especially the black and orange one with that typewriter print! VERY nice.
