A Return to the Land of Low Laying Cloud

For those who may think I'm still doing good on my promise to change my life and move to Seattle - I must mention that I have returned to the dear mountains of North Carolina, forever thankful that I did not sell my house in West Asheville.  For those who never thought I left, well, we need to go out for beers more often.   And for myself, I am returning to enjoy the slow moving morning heat, to pick up not where I left off two years ago, but at some point between now and then, hopefully with a clearer vision of how I will spend the last 20 years of my sweet, wild life.

I have been amiss for neglecting this blog, but I have been gardening with a vengeance.  Gone are two years of frantically growing weeds now replaced by a new garden addition of a garlic field and onion patch.  I have gone far beyond what I have ever done to that tiny, life saving hosta bed.

I have thought much about writing this blog, yet it is late and I have been working on the "Upcoming Workshops" page which has bested me. I need a gin & tonic badly, and a sit down in front of the TV. But important notes: Leon is still with me, my teacher of the cat nap.

 And I have been working on new felt objects

And I am, or will be shortly, teaching in my studio again.  Current classes are listed.  And a new feature of my studio life is that I have scheduled regular monthly Resist Dye weekends.  I will be working and teaching on those days and if you want to come as a beginner to learn or as an experienced resist dyer needing to replenish your supplies of lovely felts, I'll be glad to see you!

So until I write again, I hope you are doing well.
Thanks for keeping your little photo in that "following" area.
