Little red cap sample

I just finished my new sample for my little red cap class in November.
 I have been so busy lately, I have several projects on various tables around the house. As I wait for glue or paint to dry on one project I move around to the next one in no particular order,  happily making away, but feeling that I can't quite catch up and not wanting to let down any of the wonderful people who trust me to design, teach and create for them.

First class of the season!

I love the Autumn. The sun is lower in the sky and the evenings  are so beautifully lit, as if Maxwell parish had arranged the entire thing.
             Yesterday was my first class of the season at Castle in the air.
And it was a wonderful welcome back after the summer. Such a fabulous group. I am so very fortunate to cross paths with such lovely people. We talked and laughed and ate macaroons and lemon cake and in the meantime we made needle felted Fraidy cats.

I'm always a little nuts before the first class. I pack up the kits for each person and then when normal folks would sit back and have a glass of wine, I attempt to stuff my entire studio in to the car. I try to think of everything I might possibly need that day which is truly bonkers as my poor little ADD brain
Is constantly heading down blind alleys and chasing wild geese. Still, I'm ok with it, I have come to appreciate the benefits of my particular  "issues" now that I work for myself and can arrange things to work for me. I try to fit the world to me instead of thinking I'm somehow broken. And my life has become a much better place to be because of it.
Nicho class is next on Wednesday, filling up boxes as I write this, do you think I might need to bring a table saw for this one?

By the way.........CASTLE IN THE AIR  is having a 40% off sale on  CP SHADES summer clothing, the loveliest silk and softest, finest linen . You are lovely, treat yourself!
