My husband and I spent a recent weekend in Mineral Point, WI for our 25th anniversary. It's an adorable town in southwestern Wisconsin that was settled by Cornish miners. Lots of cute cottages and lots and lots of art galleries. We stayed in an inn that was also a restaurant and microbrewery. Totally charming. We stopped in every one of those galleries in town. Even picked up a little piece for my garden.

At one of the galleries, I actually talked with one of the owners. Showed him pictures of a couple of my pieces. He actually didn't laugh at me which is encouraging. Gave me a couple of pointers even. Between that, the restful weekend, good food, and the gorgeous drive on the back roads in that area, I came back revitalized. I have so many ideas going thru my head now.... and of course, 60 things getting in the way of my going into my studio. I need to try and get into the habit of doing something everyday again... even if it is only for 15 minutes. We'll see what I can do.

I did cross one of those 60 things off my list today. I got a baby quilt finished. I know it may seem strange to do black for a baby quilt, but I have made about half a dozen of them so far. Stripes, rectangles, and squares. Various bold colors and arrangements. I love the contrast. Works for the Amish quilters... 

Wish me luck on getting some work done in the studio..........
