Catching Up

What a week!  Honestly, not much has been happening in the studio because I haven't been home. Our youngest son Josh had an accident and broke his ankle last week. Unfortunately it required some surgery with a plate and pins installed.  We made an emergency trip to Wichita, Kansas to help out and in the quick retreat from home I had no time to even take something to work on.  I did manage to take the Archie Brennan/Susan Mafei DVD's and spent some time reviewing them while in Wichita but otherwise literally nothing in the way of studio projects moved forward.  I am including a sneak peak of the Multi- Technique Bag that I was working on right before we left.  The outside appears fairly finished but the lining and pockets on the inside are still to be done.

While we were waiting for the surgery to take place our eldest son Francis and wife Brooke had their first child in Tillamook , Oregon.  Getting the pictures of little Gavin Meetze was the brightest spot in the week for us and I am sharing a couple of them here.

Yesterday we made the trip back home from Wichita and have Josh with us as he needs some time to heal.  It is not an easy thing for an active 28 year old to be so out of commission but we are all working together.
 Now the challenge is to get everything ready for my trip to Tennessee . I'm planning to leave on June 23 very early and should be back by July 2.  I have been looking forward to this for months. It is at Arrowmont School, a tapestry class with Tommye Scanlin titled "Weaving the Days of Our Lives" and there is a link to the left if you would like more information.  I have to admit that with all the excitement over the last week I am feeling a bit scattered as I try to pull things together for this class, but determined never the less.
I had hoped to do a couple of simple posts during the workshop with pictures but I have not been able to figure out how to upload pictures to blogger on the iPad so if I don't post for awhile it just means there should be that much more to share when I get back.

I will try to fit in an all packed and ready to go post and then in July there will be the booth at the Fiber Christmas show .  Also in the works are some classes which I will be teaching and I will share that information as soon as it is available.
