What's up?

 My pieces from I AM WATER (image by Chris Miner)

 Some new pods in conference

 Nudie Dance commission (I did a series of these years ago)

The Gang (several of whom are headed out this week to the Canadian Guild of Craft)

The "I Am Water" show has come down, I had a great web student today, I completed a commission for a "Nudie Dance", which I have not done in a long time (but it was for a special friend!) and some happy, bright pods will be headed to Montreal next week. I have almost completed a gallery proposal (hubby needs to convert images). Monday I head to Toronto to pick up work at the Guild Shop. I have tons of inventory there and they are ready to swap some out. Lots to do. Having lots of fun along the way!

Space available!

example of a happy student!

I have interest from a nearby student in a 2 day bags workshop and she is open to sharing the studio time. If you would like to join us, please email me for details.We have not yet booked a date so, at this point, a date can be made to suit you both. There is a little motel very close if you need to travel.

A few of the sculptures created this weekend by Jenn, Elizabeth, (me), Carolann, Annette and Evelyn (KiKi and Kris were still working!)

I had a great several days in Massachusetts at my favorite place to hang out, New England Felting Supply. I taught 4 women bags (not to be confused with 4 bag women) with 3d elements and then 7 for "pods". The days flew by and I was happy to have people from St. Louis and Virginia and neighboring states. I love for people from all over to get the chance to see the amazing store and spend some time with me. I am a lucky feltmaker!

Now that I am home I have a couple of days of downtime. Today consisted of catching up on some correspondence, looking over a contract and completing a supply list, some household stuff and a quick nap before the kids pick-up routine brought me back to Mom duty.

Tomorrow I will unpack my materials and get the studio set up to begin some work. On the weekend I have a web class, but hope to get in a bit of "me" time in the studio before then if I can get the dreaded tax stuff photocopied and ready for the accountant. Yuck! Sorry for the lack of entertaining quips and witty banter in this post....I'll make up for it later.

I had a webcam student learning vessels. Layout is done and Patty would really prefer to lay on it instead of her fleece.
