January 22nd, Weaving Southwest had an opening for their new show. This is a frequent event and I don't always hear about them... but more frequent examination of the Tempo section of The Taos News has helped me find out about this one a couple hours before it happened.
The show looked lovely. There were some beautiful tapestries by Kathy Perkins that I hadn't seen before.

And here is a sneak peak at the piece I finished last month. I am having some trouble getting a good photograph of it, so here is a detail.
In other news:
One morning last week I found this little guy on my dining room table. "Dining room table" is a euphemism for "card table covered with bed-sheet table cloth." In my defense, there is a REAL table, but it is currently in "Your Other Closet" somewhere in Mississippi.
I have never before seen a slug in New Mexico, but there he was plain as day, leaving a slimy trail across the spot I was going to eat my granola. He was also deceased, having dessicated sometime in the night (he missed the memo on low humidity levels). After some sleuthing I realized he had taken a ride home in a mint plant we had bought at Trader Joe's and placed on the shelf over the table.
