What does it mean to slow down and Make in a thoughtful manner....?

Let's talk about it!

Retreat Registration update

Retreat Registration update

I want to say a most heartfelt thank you to everyone who responded to my retreat announcement with such enthusiasm! After the events of the past month, your love and support has been so so sweet.....  I have had so many people sign up for my Newsletter that I had to go from a free subscription on MailChimp to a paid one!  Such a good problem to have!

With the past two months being as emotionally challenging as they have, I have decided to push back opening registration just a little bit more. I will open registration for all three of my 2018 retreats on Monday March 5th at 3:00PM EST. Only a week later than initially planned.... The opening will be announced in the newsletter.

I had really wanted to do this sooner, but had to face the reality that last month, when I should have been working on all the back end logistics, I was planning for and attending my Father's Memorial.  After that emotionally draining event I needed to go away and stare into space for a week. And then tomorrow I head out for Quiltcon in Pasadena. So you see I am a bit behind on my initial schedule. Not horribly behind, but behind nonetheless. Last year I had to push back opening registration because I came home from Quiltcon with a plague that kept me in my bed for two weeks!  I am 99% ready to accept registrations, but I will be visiting my Mother after Quiltcon and she lives in the boondocks, without wifi, so I thought better of trying to do business at that moment.  I hope you will all forgive me, and be patient for just a few more days...!

I am also wrestling with Lightroom, my photo editing program, which has mysteriously lost all of my downloads for 2017. Don't worry, I've got it all backed up, but I don't have the time to search for it all at the moment. So I'm reverting to old imagery for this post.  Feels weird, but not terribly. Hope you like these images as much this time as you did (did you?) the last time...
