My last worshop for January…. I think i will take a few days off now…
My January tour…4 cities..6 workshops…126 students…I had a blast!!!! Loved meeting all my new and groupie students!!!! (yes some actually pay $$$ to come back again)
Getting people excited about wool and showing them that they CAN DO IT too…there is nothing like seeing the light bulb go on for these girls when i am teaching them all the stitches and tricks to working with wool….It is very satisfying…I am in the Sacramento airport flying back to Ontario CA where I will fly back home tomorrow…and spend some time with my hunny and puppies and maybe start a new quilt!
I am enjoying a little CA sunshine before I go to the guild meeting tonite..see my shoes… Yes those are my fav pair of flipflops and I am just a stitchin away on my next design for wool retreat weekend…us Wisconsin girls suffer from sun deprivation… We do not see it for months, that is why I am so excited to be basking in it today…sorry to be more excited about it than my project but here is a peek at it…LB
