Backing up your Blog

Here is some very helpful and clear information from Holly Knott on how to back up your Blogger blog.  Since it is normally stored on Blogger's servers you may never need to use the back up, but should something occur on their end, you will be able to access the files on your computer to aid the restoration process.

Wonderful Weekend

Just getting around to posting about last weekend.  A fine family celebration (my sister's and my birthdays), as well as catching up with my traveling nephew who just returned from Berlin.  Those boys are now handsome young men.  How the time goes!  The weekend also became recuperation time from the virus I had...feeling so much more energetic now.  Connection will so often restore the spirit, won't it?

A very tolerant Cisco!
We went to see the Japanese woodblock exhibit "Dreams and Diversions" at the San Diego Museum of Art...superb! Glad to have seen it...closes June 5th.   The exhibit added to what I had seen last year at the Norton Simon's Hiroshige show. 

Then there was Marimekko fabric shopping trip...ah the colors!  And at bargain prices!

Here is the project I was completing with embroidery on the train ride.  What do you think of the gold leaf?

PAQA-South Pictures

Thanks to Lyric Kinard for reviewing and posting photos of the current ARTQUILTSmovement exhibit in Durham, NC.  I was happy to see "Meandering Flow" right next to "Welcome to the Human Race" by  Sherry Kleinman, my friend and fellow Fiber Fanatic.   It is a wonderfully curated show in a fine space.  So if you are in the area, drop on by.
