Baby, It's Cold Outside!

Which is the absolute night we've been pulling -2F with daytime highs of 18F. However, this is actually the title of a small fiber show at the Benkin Gallery of Art/Studio 14 in Tipp City, OH. A number of my quilty friends are in it, including Carroll Schleppi and Pam Geisel.

It's are the details:

Studio 14 Benkin Gallery of Fine Art
Jan. 5-Feb. 27
Tues.-Sat. 11 am-5 pm | Sun. 1 pm-5 pm
14 E. Main St. Tipp City, OH 45371

I'll add more on these later...I need to get to bed. The last several days have been crunching numbers....getting the information ready for the tax guy, doing all the profit/loss figures for my Amazon business (which I obviously need to get out of given what I've discovered) and madly getting the information done for scholarship applications and the Free Application for Federal Financial Aid.

My daughter is filling out scholarship applications and several merit scholarships also require the information. In order to give them the numbers they want (adjusted gross income, amount of tax paid, etc.) I have to literally do the taxes even though we're having them done this year.
It was enough to make my head explode, especially since my husband's company had us go to a Health Savings Account and I am having a hard time making heads or tails of the instructions on the taxes.

Meanwhile, my dear daughter is after me to get it done....when the W2s only arrived on February 1. She popped her head into my office today and said "You're not working on the Dollars for Scholars OR the FAFSA application! You're doing the Taxes!!!" Um...yes...oh so true...because in order to fill out the other stuff, this had to be done.

Yuck. I just wish they would make it easier.

Anyway, "Baby's It's Cold Outside" is running in three rooms in a 19th century commercial building. The bottom floors and a part of the second story are taken over with antiques and collectibles...the junky stuff is in the basement.

I often find things there to bring home to make prints on fabric, or to rust dye with, or sometimes even vintage trims. It's pretty fun. Tomorrow I hope to talk about Carroll and Pam's the meantime, you an have a virtual look.

I don't like going into the basement of the building as it smells so musty, but there are some really cool antique items on the first floor...I really like the room in the back with the advertising signs and the unpainted Big Boy statue.

Of course, they also have several antique quilts that are very reasonably priced.
