Three workshops---catching up---Rochester MN, Green Lake WI and Milford NE

Okay so I got behind again---so here is an attempt to get caught up before I start my carpal tunnel surgeries on Thursday.

On Thursday  I will have my left hand done and the following Thursday--- my right---I thought i would let the practice on my left before my dominant hand.

All three workshops were awesome---so much fun to be with rug hookers doing something they love---and something I love to do as well.

I am sorry that I don't have time to give credit to all of the artists.

Here is a group of students that I went on a tour of the St. Francis of Assisi facility with--s awesome facility!

 Here are some of the class projects---great students!


Saturday morning journal cover class--a lot of them finished and I brought my sewing machine to stitch them up!  Make and take!

 From Rochester it was on to Green  Lake---here are some photos from there,

This is my Kashmir Paisley pattern---Mary Ellen did a great job!

This farm scene by Sally was so incredible---I can't take any credit ---other than working with her on the trees---so nice to see this piece and be around such a wonderful woman.

Mary Flanagan runs a great camp!  Beautiful smile!

Had a few weeks at home and then it was off to Gatherings on the Blue in Milford Nebraska for my last workshop of the year---always have a great time on the farm---this year was no exception.

My friend and helper Jody went with me----here she is relaxing in the easy chair!  Thanks Jody!

 I returned home Sunday night have been in organizing mode in preparation for tomorrow's surgery.  I think I am about ready---a few more things to do today---like get a massage!  I went to yoga on Monday and Tuesday and will miss going this next week---love my yoga Community at Radiant  Yoga.

Great news---just found out yesterday that Baxter is coming to see me Dec. 7-11---something to look forward to---a late Thanksgiving and an early Christmas!

My apologies for not getting all the pictures and students associated with them.  Please contact me at with any questions.
