This is Alexandra Elizabeth, a rescue Chihuahua from Colbert, Ga. She is 3 or 5 years old depending on which expert guess you like best. She has Olympic caliber athletic skills and loves to dance on her hind legs. She is NOT house broken. Thank heaven the fence will be installed Thursday. She has made lots of progress since December 24 when she came to her forever home.
She joined Erica and me at a fashion show for independent designers held at the loading dock of the local paper. My new hairstylist tells me that this is a typical venue at New York fashion week. She works the shows each year.
My design hero, Natalie Chanin, came to town as part of the Georgia Sewn Conference and I was able to talk with her and participate in a mini-workshop. This is the newspaper photo from the local paper. I had a very nice seat on the floor of the Atrium in the Lamar Dodd School of Art. UGA.
There have been other activities: meeting Charlottean Meta Thompson at the Fibercraft Guild, seeing “The Graduate” at the Town and Gown Theatre, a drawing class at OLLI (Google this if you are 50+), et. al.
There are at least six special activities every day, most of them free. I just wish I could bring all of my friends and family down here to play with me.
There will definitely be more later–
