Practicing Patience – Seeking Serenity

The countdown is on: I am getting ready to travel for teaching. This past week kept me close to the studio, partially due to the weather, extremely muddy roads and the art piece I wanted to complete for months. The snow predicted for Saturday is supposed to arrive later today. Yes, more snow – and there is nothing I can do, except put finishing touches on handouts and select quilts for the trunkshow in early May.

I am finally taking time to acquire a couple new skills as well: Ever since I have owned my iPad I wanted to figure out how to post on my blog without carrying my computer wherever I travel. This is my very first blogpost on the iPad and I am slowly figuring out how to upload an image and catch the auto-correct… I have corrected some very funny words already!

It has been an eventful week. When picking up some backing fabric at the local quilt shop I ran into one of my students registered for Art Quilt Campus 2013 at Shekinah this coming August. It is always great when I can put a face to the name prior to a class. Then, on Friday I received confirmation that a sixth student signed up for my class in Abruzzo, Italy.

With such great prospects ahead I can overlook the snow for the next three days – it has to stop sometime and looking ahead to teaching and traveling makes the white stuff much less depressing. I think I will pull out my suitcase today and select some clothes for the Santa Fe trip. My camera is waiting to capture some great scenery and color…

Enjoy your Sunday!

    Greetings from snowy Alberta, only too happy to pass it off to you! We got several inches of very wet stuff yesterday — heavy to shovel, and icy beneath. I too am “stuck” at home and practicing patience — finalizing the details (packaging, price, list, postcards, etc.) for my booth at “Encore: Art Sale and Celebration” next weekend in Lacombe,..and also packing for Santa Fe! I look forward to meeting up with you there. Thanks for your ongoing inspiration.
