November 11

Where did October go? it's been a whirlwind
Early in the month was the Idea to Image retreat at Chico Hot Springs. A small, intense group; great accomodations, wonderful food, no distractions. Then on to Fabrications in Michigan. This was my second year teaching at that Retreat (I'll be there again next year!). It was one of the most intense, passionate groups I've worked with.
A well organized retreat (Cathy Arnett rocks!), with a good mix of workshops. Home from Michigan and off to Houston. What is there to say? I loved seeing old friends, putting faces to names, seeing a few of the exhibits (ran out of time, sigh. Did not even get much shopping done. ...Well, except for some silks and a few odds and ends...).

A dear friend and I spent Tuesday at the Rothko Chapel - this had been a goal of mine for years. This year we finally did it. I think i need to put revisiting the chapel on my list of what to do in Houston. It was an awesome experience.

Now we are well into November. This week i head to Atlanta to visit at Fiber on a Whim, one of my favorite shops to teach at. Then home for Thanksgiving and off to Switzerland for a week.
I will be in studio the rest of December and most of January, all of February and i can't wait. These little books keep demanding my attention and i want to see what happens next.
