We are gradually slowing down to a more relaxed pace. The scramble to get ready to leave following on the Christmas busyness, left us quite tired before we even began the trip. We are still playing catch-up on tasks that were transportable and Don is continuing to conduct some real estate business from here. Modern technology makes it possible - cell phone plus internet.
For the gals out there, I am attaching a photo that I took at the car show - a booth featuring wearable art. The fabric used is a blend of wool and silk, the designs are mainly painted with fabric dyes - very precise and controlled work as opposed to the free style work that is more common. Some of it may actually be done with stencils. The jacket in the foreground has no facings or lining, is edged with a very narrow silk binding and is priced at $650. I can't identify the artist at the moment.
