Last week I was so happy to finally meet up again with Rebecca and Pam for a little beach time before we taught at French General and the Art of Craft. California was beautiful, but goodness, it was so, so cold. Colder than New York for sure. Seemed like I wore all my clothes all the time. Didn't matter. The sun was shining, the territory was new and the friends were so sweet. Who cares about freezing feet?
We made art, shared inspirations and wandered around beaches and towns in the area of Santa Barbara.
Pam brought lots of art materials. We each had our stitching.
Kits were finalized for class. (I was excited to use my new collection Tilly in my class this time.)
Thrift and scrap hunting.
At last we left the little cottage by the sea and headed off to French General for our classes.
I love teaching. Especially here. Amazing students. Coolest store. Kaari, Molly and Mogull put on a fantastic weekend. For me, it was a little reunion of France. And always the best time.
Thank you to every one of you who made our little getaway memorable. It was so good!
