864 Family Farm
This post should be called "When Life Gets in the Way." For the last several weeks, I have been absent on the painting and posting scene because of a commitment to my garden club. Now that most of the dust has settled, I am eager to get back to painting more regularly. There are so many paintings in my head just waiting to be put to canvas.

In case you'd like to know about our big "event," read on. For the last 15 months, The Whitefish Bay Garden Club has been planning our inaugural garden tour of 10 private gardens and 4 public gardens in our little village. But not just any garden tour--a tour of gardens with quilts made by local quilters, "Quilts in the Garden." Oh. My. Our little idea grew and grew and our 10 private gardens were staged with 90 beautiful quilts. It was spectacular. We had no idea how many tickets to print, so we initially printed 250. The number of pre-orders kept growing, and more tickets were printed. We never expected, nor were we prepared to sell 900 tickets. But it was a beautiful day and people came and truly enjoyed the quilts and the gardens. Here are a few photos. Enjoy!
