Easing back into teaching

I've done almost no teaching this year, as I'd thrown myself into classes to complete my professional designation. One way or another, it's all over October 4th when I write my first of two exams. I hadn't really gotten my head around teaching again, but when I stopped in at Quilter's Dream yesterday, Carol told me that a half dozen people had asked if they would run a Crazy Quilting class! I've given her a couple of days in October and November I'd be available to do it, so if you're interested, get in touch with them and let them know! I've suggested a two day workshop to really get people going on the wonderful embroidery stitches and embellishments you can do. Their #'s on the link, so I'd appreciate it if let them know if you're interested.

I get more out of every day as I spent the week catching up on Alyson's podcasts. A drive to visit friends in London was a big help, and I'm all caught up now. I ordered a copy of her book, "I'd Rather Be in the Studio" for a friend's daughter who just graduated with an art degree, and I'd encourage anyone looking to improve their art business to get Alyson's book.

I was at a beautiful wedding last weekend where I took lots of pictures of the bride (whom I've known since Kindergarten) and groom (who was in our grade 4 class!), but this is the one I'm posting - I thought this wall outside a great gallery called Artists Walk in Village Square in Burlington had great texture and I can see it incorporated into something arty in the future.

Thank you, Veronica! I know your friend's daughter will also get a lot out of the book. Hope it doesn't overwhelm her. ;)
