Back Home

What a Trip!
  I had an absolutely fabulous time teaching at the Bath Textile Summer School this year and cant wait to share my trip with everyone. I am back home and busy as ever, totally worn OUT...or 'poop tucker'd '  as daughter would say. On top of that, I am getting sick, but for me, that was the plan~ didn't care how sick I got when I got home...just as long as I was well when I was in England (and France!).  I got home late Saturday night, and the children started school on Monday~ so not even any time to unpack.

   I was greeted with hugs and 'I miss yous' when I came home, which was nice..I think they really did miss me.  I wasnt in the door a minute before Pip presented me with this box, jumping up and down saying open it open it!!
  Am so proud of her~ she made me a whole box full of little food creatures~ stitched them all herself, and this is a BIG accomplishment for her. She spends most of her time during 'Mommy Scouts' trying desperately just to thread her needle.  She wanted them to smell good too, so inside the apple, she put cinnamon in with the stuffing.....but my favorite (the thought, not so much the smell)....inside the lemon, she put Lemon Pepper seasoning out of the spice rack! LOL.  These are going in my special Mommy Box for sure.

And even more surprising, husband missed me too~ Sunday morning when I woke up, there was a new path from the gallery to my new workshop waiting for me complete with lights and pretty flowers~ how cool is that?  Wonder what he will make for me when I am gone to teach at Bath Textile Summer School in 2019????

LEMON PEPPER! Ha! Ha! Kind of reminds me of the OREGANO some little girl put in her spice cake she made for me when she was about 5!! Left sort of a weird aftertaste when you exhaled after eating it! Ha! Ha! Glad you're home. Can't wait to see pictures! :-) Love you, Mom
