My daughter Becky and I will be driving out to Berlin, Ohio, on Thursday for my show with Berlin Creek Gallery. I’m looking forward to sharing this wonderful experience with Becky, who has never been there. Gallery owner Nancy Tarzan, her daughter Alysha, and their team are so warm and friendly with everyone—it’s like being with family. We’ll be staying at the Miller Haus B&B again with friends, which has become a tradition. It’s going to be lots of fun for both of us. On Thursday night, a group of us will have an authentic Amish dinner at an Amish home. I’ve already told Becky that she will need to bring her appetite.
Zoar Grist Mill will be released during my show with Berlin Creek Gallery, Berlin, OH, October 2-3. The mill, which is no longer standing, spanned the Ohio and Erie Canal near Zoar, Ohio, and was built in 1858 and operated by the Society of Separatists of Zoar until the dissolution of their communal economy in 1898. For more information, please contact the gallery at 330-893-2686.
This Wednesday, I’m going to be the guest speaker at the Susan G. Komen Pink Promise Luncheon in Vinton, Virginia.
A portion of the proceeds from the sale of Love is Hope at Susan G. Komen’s Pink Promise Luncheon on September 30 will benefit the organization. It will be available for general release on October 19.
Daughters Mary and Patty and I had a wonderful time with the Quilt Camp at Sea group in Alaska. Everything was run so well, and we all enjoyed the projects and instructors. I came away with many new ideas. It was a great experience for us, and the vistas were marvelous. I think Patty took at least three videos of glaciers calving.

Back at home, my daughter Becky has been busy setting up for the etching class she will be teaching for Virginia Tech’s Lifelong Learning Institute, starting on October 7. We are so blessed to have these opportunities to experience new things and to share our own experiences and adventures with others.
Next Tuesday, October 6, I’m going to be the guest speaker for the Community Foundation of the Virginia’s Annual Dinner in Bluefield, Virginia. Then, I’m off to Waynesboro, Virginia, for our October gallery show and Barn Open House, October 9-11. This will coincide with Waynesboro’s annual Fall Foliage Festival, and I’m very excited to be back in Waynesboro in the middle of it all. Please come and join us for a weekend of fun!
Autumn Reflections will be released during my October 9-11 gallery show and Barn Open House in Waynesboro, VA. For more information, please contact my Waynesboro gallery at 540-949-6473.
