…before I load the carry on and “large purse” into the car. My flight for Quilting by the Lake leaves at the ungodly hour of 1:45 am.
Before I “hit the road” again I decided to take a walk around the yard with my iPhone. When I watered the plants this morning prior to the sun getting to its hottest point I realized how the planters have filled in over the past four weeks.
This is the best time of the year here, and I rarely have the chance to just sit back and take in the scenery. I know, I know – I am the one making the decision to head out and teach.
The good news: I plan to travel a whole lot less in the future. Step one was taken when I signed the contract Monday to write a comprehensive Kantha book which will be an expanded print version of the electronic book I have available now. I have no more information at this time, but will keep you posted as the book unfolds. One definite plan I have is to include a gallery section with work produced by former and current Kantha workshop participants. Drop me a line <email@example.com> if you have produced work based and/or inspired by the workshop.
I am also considering one and/or two day workshops from the studio on a more regular basis. A number of local artists and groups have approached me with suggestions. I am letting these ideas ruminate as I spend way too much time waiting for connections in airports.
That’s it for today. The next time I check in I will be in Syracuse. Looking forward to connecting with old friends and making new ones! Safe travel to everyone – whether you are off to Quilting by the Lake or joining family and friends on summer holidays.
