I was up early this morning and these were my thoughts I wrote:
I'm up early
amazed at the stillness
the quiet peace
until I listen closely
hear the wind through the trees
the birds singing their morning song
even the full moon setting calls to me
as the cats cry out their plea for breakfast
and the voice in my head says coffee please
I've been busy this morning continuing with listings on eBay, trying to sell off some things to appear I'm not really hoarding anything. Check out some of my listings if you want. Here is a couple of items and links then you can check on see all my items. It takes a fair amount of time to photo, describe and list items so keep checking as I will methodically be adding things.
After my travels I will be going to Missouri to participate in the Weavers' Guild of St. Louis annual sale. Then visit my folks along with my sister Jan before I head to Texas to teach at Art Retreat at the Prairie. I still can't believe I'm going to get to stay and teach at Rachel Ashwell's Prairie! It looks so fabulous and I can't believe more people aren't signing up to come! Barb Solem of Vivi Magoo puts this retreat on and the classes offered along with the accommodations are so unique! Don't you want to join me for a class or two at this incredible setting?
Here are some more pics of fabrics and scarves I'm teaching how to botanical and rust dye print. It's so fun and magical to take leaves, flower petals, onion skins and rusted relics, wrap them up with fabric and see what transpires!
I will also be teaching a garment reconstructing class where we take gently used and unloved garments and create a new one with them. Perhaps adding bits of vintage lace, embroidered doilies, and old interesting buttons.
