After some time away from the studio it is now high time I get organized for the my upcoming workshops in Ontario. I feel a little guilty for neglecting the blog for several days. I will return to a routine soon, I promise!
I look forward to teaching two 2-day workshops for the London Embroiderers’ Guild in early June. The kits are ready and all I have to select is a box to fit everything into for shipping ahead. Before that happens I was waiting for last minute numbers from Quilt Canada 2016. The original deadline was today… Over the weekend the deadline for registration was extended to May 27th. That means that I have to anticipate the numbers to grow and ensure I have enough supplies. I fully understand the reason for the extension, however it makes it challenging for instructors to keep the luggage manageable.
I am shipping ahead as much as possible as lugging heavy bags is hazardous to anyone’s health. I am still trying to overcome an injury I sustained last July “slinging” a heavy suitcase with supplies, kits and samples… and that was for only two workshops. This time I am preparing for five workshops and a presentation.
While packing for Ontario is the primary focus this week we are also concentration on the house. Summer is here and we finally had some time to add color to planters and pots over the weekend. Everything looks so much better already!
