It was a busy week. Three days of celebrating my birthday, one with friend Larry Vellani. Went to the "Rembrandt" exhibit at the NC Museum of art, on my birthday. Finishing up the week with our friends' Barbara and Tony's husband and wife birthday party. Along with a case of poison ivy I also did manage to bring my art to the Alamance Co Arts Council for their Christmas Holiday Show.

On Sunday took some fabric designed by daughter Margaret, organized, and sewed a quilt with daughter Liz , and Pedro. Quite a family affair. Hope to take it to one of the local Christmas Bazaars.

Moving the clock back an hour

November tells me another year is coming to a close. Sorry I didn't write about the wonderful exhibits I had since my last blog. August was "Remembering Italy" at the Saxapahaw Artists Gallery. I had about 30 paintings on display and it was truly an Italian event. "Mebansville " played some great Italian songs and my granddaughter Hannah Jackson sang and played her guitar in the downstairs gallery. It was also her 16th birthday.

During September and October new paintings were brought to the Benjamin Vineyard for our first mother-daughter exhibit "celebrating Women." I was honored to have my art along side my daughter Margaret Jackson's beautiful iconic paintings.

October was the time for the Alamance County 2nd annual studio tour. I exhibited my paintings and prints at the sculptor, Cindy Biles Studio in Saxapahaw.

I have taken time to add some new art on the Cafepress site. I have always been pleased with the quality of the products and their customer service on this site A 2012 calendar "La Mia Cucina" is now available in my calendar section.

All the images of my art work on the calendars can be framed.

I hope to be better about keeping up with this blog. Most days are too short.
