More than enough time…

…to let you know what has been going on in my life.  Although with the current COVID-19 situation, it is not very exciting right now!

I officially stopped teaching. Basically that means I am not going out of my way to set up workshops or classes. Still love to pass on my passion for fibers, so if anyone is interested, just contact me and we can set something up.

The grandkid population has increased to 6 with each son/wife creating two. Those little ones are a blast!  And they are not so little anymore: two almost 9, one almost 8, two 4 yo and one going on 3. Soooooo missing their company this year…

The biggest challenge right now is upping my sales game virtually.  For the past 10 years or so I have been a part of a 12-woman group, Studio Collection, putting on an annual sales event the weekend before Thanksgiving. This year we had plans in place to change our venue which was promising and a bit scary as the event had been held at the same venue for more than 20 years. Now, bless that little virus heart, we are thinking we might have to do it all virtually!

The majority of the artists are pretty capable with their online presence. I am a bit of a dinosaur. Trying hard to put online stuff in place that will be easy and productive without having a degree in website building. Seems like each potential web sales possibility has just enough that I don’t know… and they all seem to make it hard to put it all together.  But I am trying. It will be an adventure, for sure!

You all stay safe!

It’s October already!

I’m finding it hard to believe how much time has elapsed since my last post here! About the only thing that remains of the summer are the bug bites that still itch.


Lots has happened including a new grandson!  Sebastian John is already two weeks old and growing!  Such a cutie, but then I’m his grandmother – I’m supposed to say things like that.


I’ve been involved for the past 6 months with a yarn bombing movement in the Cincinnati area – check out BombShells of Cincinnati to see our handiwork!  (We are also on Face Book if you want to friend us.) What was originally intended as a one project adventure now seems to be turning into a small art company!  Keep tabs on us to see what we are up to next.


More immediate is some teaching this coming weekend in NY for the Eastern Great Lakes Fiber Conference. And then on to getting some work accomplished to be ready for three – count ’em – THREE! back-to-back fiber sales in November.


Add in some local basketry and book making classes and I’ll be keeping busy for the next couple months!  Hopefully that won’t keep me away from this blog to much.  Hoping to be more consistent with my presence.


Thanks for patiently waiting.  Hope your summer went well!
