I'm so sorry I've neglected everyone! We had a busy start to the year here in Norwalk. My daughter, Fiona had eye surgery on the 16th and now that she is recovering beautifully I feel like I can finally start my New Year. Amazing how a relatively routine outpatient procedure can consume your whole world when it's someone you love.
Now for a little bit of exciting news. On Thursday January 26th I will be teaching a class in making this "Remember You Are" collage at Gabby Road Studios. This is the new art gallery/studio that opened up right before Christmas and have sold several picture frames there. The owner, Sharon, asked me if I would be interested in teaching a class in collage - I told her that I did not consider myself a master craftsman but I would be more than happy to show other people how much fun, and
how inspiring collage can be.
I have also been busy making more coffee cozies. I thought hearts with reds and pinks was a pretty good idea being that Valentine"s Day is coming up soon. I forget how therapeutic it is to embroider, there is just something about pulling a needle and thread...
I wrote this Haiku sometime last year but was reminded of it yesterday - enjoy and have a great weekend.
Steadiness in pulling thread
