This holiday weekend was full of friends and time outside. I hope everyone had a relaxing enjoyable holiday.
I had a reconnecting moment with an old friend this weekend. My DH clipped ads for local art fairs out of the paper. He can be so surprising after all these years. On our way to the store we made a stop at one of the fairs. As we were walking through the artists booth I was automatically drawn into this booth.
Turns out this art is made from fiber and unexpectedly from a former member of PAQA – Joan Ladendorf. I had not seen Joan in years, so I went up and reintroduced myself. She said of course she remembered me, but I wanted to make sure. I am terrible myself with names and really appreciate when people remind me who they are where I know them from. Anyway her work has really evolved since the days when I knew her, it was a real pleasure to see her new work and to visit with her in the heat of the day. Life is full of wonderful surprises.
