It's Not A Quilt ... Or Is It? Opening Night

The Copper Shade Tree Gallery held it's Opening Night celebration of "It's Not A Quilt ... Or Is It?" on Friday, February 6, 2009 in Round Top, Texas. I can honestly say that "a good time was had by all"!

Above is Gerald and Debbie Tobola's son Tim, with his lovely friend, whose name I'm sorry I've temporarily forgotten!

Sweet Sherry and Steve Yarborough, my neighbors, came up to Round Top to see the show, and are flanking my "EyePod", which tickled their funnybones.

Kay Tobola, above, is a funny and gracious lady who helps Gerald and Debbie with anything that needs doing, during these opening nights. She is a lot of fun!

Jo Sweet enjoys a glass of (?) and conversation with a patron.

Hannah Mallon and Mary Ann Littlejohn join forces for a sip and a giggle.

Owner Gerald Tobola gives my brother Don Teddlie the lowdown on the Arts in a small town and a big world.

Gerald always has a smile for everyone. He is one of the most fun people I know.

Tim and his Dad ... wonder where he gets his good looks from? ;^)

Tim did the beautiful oversized postcards for the show again this year ... thanks, Tim!

Sweet Debbie is hard at work behind the counter, as usual ... I could barely get her to take time to grin for the camera, and by the time I clicked the shutter, she was already back at work!

My dear friends Connie Fahrion, Leslie Tucker Jenison, and Mary Ann Littlejohn. What a group of talented women!

Carol Moore, Me, Leslie Jenison, and Virginia Spiegel. Carol (from Canada) and Virginia (from Illinois) are in Texas for a month's stay at Karey Bresenhan's Great Expectations Creativity Center, as Artists in Residence. I was so thrilled to have them come for the Opening Night. They are both a hoot-and-a-half, and I can't wait to see what they have been working on.

And last but not least, here's a pic that Leslie sent me from her camera ... me, Connie and Mary Ann at the end of the evening.
The art quilts / fiber art from this show can be seen at the Copper Shade Tree through the end of February, and I will also post a few pictures here at a later date.

  1. Thank you for sharing these!
    It's great knowing who is who in all the photos too. It does indeed look as if a truly great time was had by all, and the art looks fabulous too! I must go see this exhibit in person.


Talk to me, Y'all!
