WOW...I'm getting A LOT Done!

It's taken me the better part of my 57 years...but I'm getting SO much done EVERY day - that it flat out amazes me.
We leave for the States in the morning...(she says as she shivers with anticipation)...and my bags are packed, I'm ready to go, and taking computer breaks and still finding time to make art.
Since it's WOYWW, I thought I'd post a picture of what I was working on last night...
Group project with my Colombian quilt group.
The pictures of my last monkey quilt are here and above...
I interviewed myself over at Artists In Blogland if you want to take a look-see. I know that sounds weird...but it's my job.
I have no idea what this will be or why I started it last week...but it's a beginning.
And...I just had to show you Sophia with her guitar. 
After her birthday fiesta when I asked, "What was your favorite part of the party"? She answered, "When you and Grumpy gave me my bitarr (guitar). (Insert big smile here).
I made bookmarks to pass out to friends and family while in the STATES!!!
So, anywho...off I go - because I'm finding it very difficult to sit still and focus on any one thing for very long this morning. 
I had a few ladies over this past Saturday morning to make bohemiannie! hootchie mamas and these are the ones I completed. :)
I'm linking to Art Every Day because I AM and will continue to make art every day...even while on vacation.

Create your life,
