Hi everyone!  As my regulars will have noticed I didn’t post a For Sale Feature post on Wednesday.  I was busy this week working on my Parker’s Cove wall hanging. I am trying to finish it before Workshop Week 4 begins .

I ran into problems with the antique rugs I’m trying to repair.  Not the least of which is I have misplaced my needle case!  So I put them aside.  

Workshop Week 4 starts Sunday and runs until next Sunday. I went from not signing up for any classes, to signing up for four!  I was going to take a break from classes this year and just focus on my current series.  But I saw Jane Mason’s watercolour for fibre artists class.  I do watercolour…badly.  And I rug hook.  The siren call of learning the 10 rules of watercolour sealed the deal for me.  I signed up.

Then I looked at Yvonne Iten-Scott’s braided edge class and thought it would be just the thing to finish off a project and make it big enough to use as a chair pad. So I signed up.  

I thought I might take Susan Feller’s finishing class, but it was full.  I’m on the waiting list.  I hear there might be a second class sometime in late February or early March.  

Well, by then I was rethinking the whole thing.  I looked at Beth Miller’s Personal Landscapes class  I love Beth’s teaching style.  I signed up.  

Then there was Laura Salamy, who is teaching a class on creating a Baby Boucherouite rug.  This is a rug made from scraps of all types of fibre.  I’ve been wanting to take this class for some time.  So I’m glad to finally have the opportunity.

So the rest of this week has been spent preparing for Workshop Week 4. My Baby Boucherouite isn’t such a baby anymore. It’s about 10” x 36”. I am finalizing a design for Beth Miller’s class and want to get it on backing before the class on Tuesday. I’m waiting for braiding tools to arrive for Yvonne’s class. They are stuck in the Halifax postal sorting station with an indefinite delivery time!  Thankfully I have all the supplies for Jane’s class.

I wish I had enough energy to take more classes, but this way I have the opportunity to rest  between classes.  I have free days on Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Saturday.   I wish all the students a wonderful week of learning, and the instructors a positive teaching experience.

If you have been, thanks for reading!  Have a great weekend everyone!
