Getting ready!

Finished my name tag for the upcoming Squam Art Workshop.  I didn't really plan on specific design, the whole thing came along on its own.  I am not very good at embroidery, so it's messy I know, but that gives it a character.

Apart from 2 evenings in Chicago, my sweet friends will let me stay at their places.  My nomadic 2 weeks will begin in just 7 days!  Excitement is boiling quietly just under my skin.
Abandoning my work for 2 weeks makes me feel guilty on one part, makes me a bit nervous about what would people think.  But I really need this trip.

Last year, I went to SAW for the first time.  It was truly a life-changing experience for me.  For the first time in many many years, I felt a sense of belonging.  I found a group of very creative people that showed me my identity. 

7 days to go!

Hi Meri!

Have a fabulous time at Squam. I'm really sad that I couldn't make it this year. I can't wait to read your stories when you gate back.

Safe Travels!!
