A Tale of Two Amulets

Back home and been thinking...

...about directions....projects....ideas.....

I still have preparations to do for the three workshops/summer schools coming up...

...and also for other workshops later in the year...

...but my mind is stirring...

...and heading back to "things tribal".

A beginning...

...with those lovely Hmong print blocks.







Hope you had a good weekend

Wonderful Workshop Weekend!! (Lots of piccies!!)

What a completely WONDERFUL weekend I had at the East Midlands Regional Summer School!

Fifteen lovely ladies...

...who did some beautiful work on their "Treasured Memories" books.





















I am so proud of them all!!

Didn't they do well?

It was a great social weekend too....

...with the other tutors, Angie Hughes and Helen Richman, and students all meeting up for meals and coffees.

Thanks to Hilary and Di for all their hard work organising the event.
