Back and not back

Late last week my mom and I got back from our fabulous week at the Empty Spools seminars in Asilomar California.  After only a day and half at home I rushed off to Dallas to visit with Becky and Anna and Andrew as well as go to the Dallas Quilt Show.  Unfortunately I came down with a wretched head cold so couldn't interact much with Becky or the baby.  Even more unfortunately, this (March) is the busiest month of the year for us here at work, so the traveling and cold couldn't have come at a worse time.

I have all sorts of things I want to talk about and think about in this space- artsy things and creative process things and life things, but I don't have the time or energy right now.

I will just say that given all the work stress my brain can't ever let go of, it's amazing how much I was able to unplug and enjoy the seminar/retreat.  Gloria Loughman is a fabulous teacher, and the experience of being there for several days creating with my mom in her class was perfect in every possible way.

Just one snap of the unfinished project I designed and worked on during the class.  Hopefully more to come in future!
