Last Friday, we once again held the Molecular Biophysics Research Symposium, this year with 121 attendees (I am the committee for this shindig), but it went very smoothly thanks to a great site staff (C.R. Smith American Airlines Museum) and a great caterer (Gil's Elegant Catering).
It was a chance once again for the attendees to talk shop...um...science...and for me to enjoy some of my favorite pieces of art...
The speaker, Nancy Brenan Daniel, was entertaining and her quilts were also wonderful to see...it was nice that she shared them with us...
On Saturday I went to my last Fiber Arts Board meeting!!! hooray!!! I love the group, but two years on the Board was long enough.
To celebrate getting one Saturday a month back to myself, I stopped at CityCraft and bought some great fabrics, most of them from the sale table - aren't they luscious? Some Heather Baily and some Robert Kaufman:
and a little bit of Robert Kaufman's Sushi Bar:
On Sunday Dave and I went to see Iron Man 2 - totally loved it. And can hardly wait for 2011 for Thor and for Captain America; followed in 2012 with The Avengers.
Coming up Friday of this week, the annual Molecular Biophysics Research Symposium...
Saturday we all headed to the Nasher Sculptural Center and was fortunate to catch the Asian Festival that was being held next to the Trammel Crow Asian Collection...
The Nasher was having a Plensa exhibit
and the flowers were gorgeous!
The only part of the Asian festival that attracted me was my friend Micheal Cook showing how to spin silk - he's a fabulous artist and is the only person I know who can weave with sewing thread!
and after the adventure of finding the DFW Observation section at Founder's Park, we all went out for dinner at our favorite Chinese restuarant (it seemed appropriate)!
And then we had to say good-bye! I think they had a good time - Next time we hope they can stay longer!!
