Home Again....(Only for a minute)

At the end of the day, after another trip to Florida, my conclusion is drawn.......I don't need to go there again. Our aesthetic vision, weather expectation and body type just aren't compatible!

On the other side of my trip.... my students were awesome, thank you gals!!!! The fashion show was exciting, two meals out were good, the Colombian restaurant was to be remembered.

I'm home only long enough to do laundry and head off to Sandwich at noon today to set up the Glass Museum show and demo tomorrow and Wednesday, come on by!

Perhaps by weeks end I will be able to settle down long enough to recall some highlights of these past few weeks!

'Mustard Seaweed' & 'Pods in Blossom'

How about this for newfangled crochet abilities? Karen Flowers just becomes more and more able to create ANYTHING with beads and thread.

This is the second and third in a new series of our work together. I am highly excited for what is to come. The crochet hook is just an extension of her fingers, an unprecedented talent for the technical execution of an idea.

I'm off to Tampa! Here's to hoping all is well in your world, I'll return the 29th of June.

At Long Last...

I hit the ground running upon returning home from Bead and Button and haven't looked up since! My time in Milwaukee was great, classes good, show good, friends and students good. All in all a very positive experience with the exception that I was having difficulty sleeping which is the quickest route to nuts that I know. The first couple of nights home I had the same trouble, seems to be fixed now...

I have been busy with the project shown here. These hanging pieces will go to Kobe, Japan to be included in an exhibit at the Glass Museum there, I'm also involved in preparation for a seven woman exhibition at The Sandwich Glass Museum entitled "Possibilities", I said this before but want to remind you out there that I will be demonstrating in Sandwich on July 1&2 and I would love to see you!

I have been having a lot of fun in the studio and feel like I have gotten plenty accomplished, always more to do. I am in preparation for Convergence in Tampa next week.

Lily, our youngest, will have a birthday later this week and has invited 10 girls for an overnight, eeeek. Glad that they have the upper part of the studio building to enjoy themselves in.
