I've been focused on readying myself for my upcoming classes. This year marks the beginning of my teaching career... to adults rather than young children. It feels right. You all have helped me tremendously. Thank you so much! You've taught me with your questions, your ideas, and your enthusiasm. Now it's time to put it all into practice... face to face and in real time. How exciting that I'll be meeting some of you soon. I've been preparing a bunch of materials and simple swatches for my printing on fabric class this Saturday and also in June.
Here are a couple of them that I photographed early this morning after a day of rain.I was so happy to wake up to blue skies, so were the birds- they gave me such a concert as I pinned the swatches to the line. I've also been preparing my bucket patterns. The round bucket has been tweaked to perfection for my Coffee Sack Hack class. I'm hoping to get several patterns into my shop mid June! I know how many have been waiting to hear this news! I can't believe Squam Art Workshops is right around the corner. I've been waiting for months... and now it's almost here. The thought of spending four summer days in a pristine setting, surrounded by creativity and joy sounds like a reoccurring dream I've had my entire life. Is this for real? I'm so grateful to Elizabeth MacCrellish for creating and organizing a retreat that encapsulates so many of our fantasies. It's not too late to register... I wish you could ALL join me. What a phenomenal crafting extravaganza that would be! Elizabeth sent me this new video to give a taste of what it will be like... see you on Monday!
