The POD was loaded in one day... which in our original plan was going to be a week of carefully organizing everything and knowing what was coming off the truck first at the other end. Not so much! IRMA changed all of that!
The POD was picked up on Monday and headed to SC to be delivered as soon as they close on their new house this next week. It's a good thing they have an empty garage to sort through everything before deciding where it all goes.
In the mean time, Murphy is here with me until things settle down. We're trying to figure out a new normal. At least he's letting me know what that normal is! I put him in the kennel with our Beagle, 'BO'. The kennel is nice and large with a covered building, with plenty of room for the two of them. I went inside to finish getting ready to head out and run a few errands, went out the front door and found Murphy waiting for me by the car. I guess he's gotten used to all the traveling and escaped the kennel because he didn't want to be left behind.
Evidently, jail breaking makes you tired. LOL
My class is called, 'Fabric Exploration With A Purpose', and I have eight 3-Hour sessions to plan for. My students will leave with lots of test samples of fabrics and techniques to take home for incorporating in their own art. My plan is to teach them a new technique at the beginning of each session and then let them loose to create where their interests are.
One of the techniques I'll be teaching will be the yarn process that I used on this bag that was featured in HAUTE HANDBAGS several years ago. We'll also be concentrating on how to make some fun cutwork designs - like on my Daisy Rag iPad cover PDF - to be incorporated into furniture, and how to change the look of a piece of fabric with color and stitching. It's so fun to be back playing with fabric again! Fabricating is my FAV!
