I’ve been playing catch up all week. I’ve been island and ferry hopping, either traveling back home from teaching on Lopez or for Roan’s school year wrap up on Vashon. The car is unpacked, but the rest is a disaster. It’s all been great fun.
The retreat that Anne of Lopez Island’s Quilter’s Studio put on for me to teach and lecture at was amazing. I so enjoyed the group that I was able to spend two plus days with. History runs deep and it was amazing to hear everyone’s stories.
When I drove up to our workshop location I can’t even explain how thrilled I was to see it was the old one room school house fully restored. What a treat to teach in.
On Sunday we spread all the quilts out on the lawn and those passing by on bikes or by car were generally curious enough to join others in the know in seeing the display.
My iPhone and computer aren’t cooperating so I don’t have any photos to show you of the kid goats, Gertrude the pig or all the hens I spent my spare time with. I ate amazing locally grown pork and beef served with fresh produce grown on my friend’s or others farms on the island. I managed one bit of solo time on a hike/run to Iceburgh Point.
Jefe was busy in my absence and the studio should be painted by the end of the weekend and trim maybe started. My logo is almost there and website in the works. So close!
My little technology flaw gives me no excuse to not go dig in the dirt, so I’ll see you all next week or earlier.
Have a great weekend peeps;)
