Looking ahead to a weekend fireside with a basket of mice. Thanks for all the orders, and there is still time to order a love-mouse. I'll add them to the Etsy shop as needed and ship on February 7th or sooner if you are one who wanted yours there earlier. Doing my bit to populate homes everywhere with lovely little mice.
Also, speaking of creative get-togethers, I can tell you now that I am going out to Portland, Oregon where I will be teaching this class (Enchanted Felt Cottage) and another (Prada Schmada) at ArtFiberfest at the end of June. Very exciting! I've never been there before and am so honored to be chosen as a teacher for this well-loved annual retreat at Reed College on the city's edge.
Friday's class is this felt cottage project, my new favorite, favorite design. I have it front and center in the studio where I can just admire it. Every now and then I pick up some little thing lingering on the table and stitch it on. Without overdoing it, I'm on to another version now and have ideas and the beginnings for more. Enchanted, indeed.
And, after seeing how much everyone enjoyed this creative class at Silver Bella last fall, I'm teaching Prada Schmada again too with some new extras to keep us busy for a longer class session. Registration begins February 25 for the event June 24-28. Hope to see you there!
