I came home on Saturday after a 2 week workshop with Nancy Crow at the Barn titled Potpourri 1 and 2. To spend time with 27 other women who are pushing the boundaries of their work was more than a privilege. There was a wide range of experience but no limit on honesty, compassion, support and willingness to share technique and information. I wanted to pinch myself at times to make sure it was real. And then, when I slept for about 5-hours, sewed for 12 hours every day including sewing time on the weekend , got frustrated beyond belief when nothing would come of my efforts the last few days, drank a few glasses of wine and laughed until I cried, I knew it was real.
I met new friends (miss you Barb and Maria) , caught up with old friends from previous workshops, and worked side by side with Elizabeth . I am inspired , a little overstimulated, sad sad it’s done with but more than excited to get back to work in my studio.
Back to work after I put it all away.
