Work Place Distractions for an AIR

 The days are crisp here at Art Quilt Tahoe as my stint as Artist in Residence (AIR) continues. Attendees were not the only ones caught off guard by the snowy, cold weather. These roses look a little stunned and amazed too. But the sun is shining today and joy is in the air!
It's really hard to work when you are surrounded by so much beauty. Major distractions are views of the clear waters of Lake Tahoe, snow capped mountains, and pine trees decked out with huge pine cones.
And then there are other distractions. Here's Libby Lehman and her class on a field trip. (You'll be happy to know that her attempts to kidnap me failed.)
Here is my work space. As I fuse yards of fabric for my evening class called Random Acts of Fusing, please note the well organized set up. This can't last.

Can't believe the snow everyone is getting, we are in the 60's, I am actually wearing shorts, lol. Looks like everyone is having fun and being inside with those views is truly inspiring to create.

What a beautiful place to be the AIR. I went to the first AQT and ... wow ... such gorgeousness! Have a ball (as in "hi"). Hot toddy, maybe.

I love Tahoe. I haven't been back in almost 10 years. Wow time flies. It looks like you are having a wonderful time!
