North Central Texas Mixed Media Group

The North Central Texas Mixed Media YAHOO Group I started online, met today at the North Richland Hills, Texas, Recollections on the Grapevine Highway. Livia led a workshop in book making with file folders and newspaper. A wonderful workshop. Seven of us attended. Click on the title of this blog to sign up for our group. We will meet at least twice in the fall, and we have swaps going on, including a chunky book, themed ASIA. And, hey, we have two members in Canada, so if you would like to join us, don't feel as though you have to live in North Central Texas...all are come on in, the water's fine.

Ricky Skaggs and Kentucky Thunder

Photo taken from Ritter Farms page.

Last night we took Joey and Bethy to my hometown, Stephenville, Texas, and heard Ricky Skaggs and Kentucky Thunder under the stars at the Birdsong Ampitheatre. The local Chevy dealer puts on summer musicals each year, and Richy and the boys are one of the major attracions...and the concerts are FREE. We had a good time, even though at 10:00 pm the temperature was still over 90 degrees! Must have been about 300+ people out.

It actually poured for a couple of minutes and rained slowly for maybe 15 minutes...cooled off from 97 degrees to 79 degrees in 30 minutes...And our deck was completed in only 4 days. Good for Armadillo Enterprises!!

Raf singing at H2JO tonight.

Thanks to all our friends for coming out tonight. Think we had 30+, and it was a good show!

Back to Photo Journaling--Friday

Looking out to the east.
Looking southeast.
Fabric collage for rmmga.

Today the new construction company in the area, Armadillo Enterprises, are finishing our deck in the back. It will cover most of the back yard!! They just started two days ago, taking the old deck down and putting this one up. The owners are local young people who have business degrees from Tarleton (where John is attending and majoring in business). They are quick, steady, and knowledgable, and I think their business will grow. Anyone in Stephenville, Granbury, or Mineral Wells who might be interested can call them at 254.485.2399 for an estimate.

I am also putting together a fabric collage as a prize for the rmmga's TX-7 gathering in Wimberley, Texas, in October. The vet is coming at 1:00 pm to give the animals their shots...great vet, Jacqueline Talley, who knows animals well and does house calls!

So that's today.

Tonight Raf will perform at H2JO atg 7:30. Hope to see some of you out then.

My friend, Louise, and I went on out monthly outing. Today we went to Fort Worth, ate at the Fort Worth Botanical Garden Restaurant, to Cabbage Rose...a quilt store, to the Artful Bead, Imprints a scrapbooking store, a paper store (can't remember the name), and finally to a new quilting store in Weatherford called Quiltin' Tia. It was very nice...a very comfortable store. Had a great day...ending with a chia tea frappe at H2JO in Mineral Wells.

We found this feather today. Can anyone identify what bird it might be from?

I realize it has been ages since I have blogged, and I hope to get back to it now ~∞:>
