Back home but for how long

Sunday, June 19th, 2011

Back from the art retreat ” Art Camp for Women ” in Winter Park Colorado. I had a wonderful time the place was really breath taking, views, wild life snow topped mountains what a beautiful place. The two gals Lori and Lorri were so organized and accommodating they even brought their own chef Becky who cooked the most amazing meals three times a day, so as you can imagine it was about eating and working. Students turned out some amazing pieces of work they worked really hard even into the night.
See for yourself below.

Well I arrived home from England on Thursday after visiting family and friends. It was chilly and raining not like the summers over here. I’m just about getting over jet lag which I really could have done without as I’m trying to get ready for my class next week at Valley Ridge with the lovely Katherine Engen. It makes it so much more enjoyable as my students are regulars and keep coming back hence a gathering of old friends. The workshop is called Stitch and Sew and it’s making a book from water color paper and machine stitching most of it.

As much as I do enjoy teaching I’ve decided that this year is going to be my last unless it’s somewhere local. Traveling and finances are not up to scratch anymore. For me personally it means I’ll have a lot more time for research and new work I’m also thinking of doing on-line workshops so who knows !

Did I mention I’m teaching at Tinsel Trading in October which is really local for me and I’m thrilled !
If you have never been to that store it is certainly worth a visit tons of vintage ribbons, lace, ephemera, buttons,beads and so much more.
