A bit of baring the soul

In less than 3 weeks I am going to Nancy Crow's Barn to study with Dorothy Caldwell in her Human Marks Workshop. I can't tell you how excited I am about this. On the way home from Ohio, I am stopping in Toronto to visit Kit Lang, a long time blogging friend. What a thrill! I will also engage in some urban sketching.

Over the last little while I have started to ponder stopping my blog. I went from 3 days a week to 2. I thought moving from surface design in fiber to human marks might possibly lose the blog many readers. I was right.

This last giveaway brought back many of my long time blog readers. It was heartening to see so many familiar names. In the next few weeks, I am going to post some great fabric dyeing experiments  I have made some of the most beautiful fabric ever and I am so excited to show it to you.

I have decided to keep my blog going, do more surface design work and more tutorials. I hope to see many of you long time blog readers and maybe some new ones as well.

Oh pleased don't stop- I have enjoyed your blog and work so much. And your kind comments on mine.

You will really enjoy your time at the Barn with Dorothy Caldwell. And you get to see Kit.

Thanks for continuing. Maybe it's all about connections.

Beth, I'm excited to hear about your upcoming experience at the Barn and your visit with Kit! I read your blog daily, and would sorely miss your wonderful posts and tutorials if you stopped, so you just MUST keep blogging, hear?!
