As usual, my very extended family trooped out to the woods for our annual 4th of July picnic. We go out to a large wood lot owned by my stepfather Rob, he of the recent 80th birthday and kayaking fame. Above are my grandson (middle) and two step cousins once removed. I tried making a family tree for those attending who were confused about who was who, but I'm not sure it helped. Anyway, we always have a great time. The men and boys (sorry to be sexist, but it's true) always enjoy most the firing of the cannon. Rob has a miniature cannon that used to be on a steamboat on the Ohio river, and would signal when the boat was rounding a bend.
I just sent off my article to Cloth, Paper, Scissors! This is my first art/craft magazine article, so I'm pretty excited. I don't know yet when it will appear, but of course I'll let you know! Below are a couple of new pieces I'll send them as well as several others.
Is this cute, or what?
