I'm in countdown mode for Art and Soul. Since I wasn't sure about flying with chemicals, dyes, gas masks, and soldering tools, most of those kind of items are in boxes and winging their way to my roomate, Kathy Wasilewski, who lives nearby in Virginia and will drive them on down (if you're going to Art and Soul and don't have a Monday class scheduled yet, Kathy teaches The Clearly Visible Journal — a very cool class that has a few spots still open). Some of the rest of my class supplies are sorted into little piles all around the house. I've still got images to print out and wee collages to make for my soldering class on Thursday.
I took a few minutes out to put some of my hand-dyed yarn into mini-skeins for Vendor's Night.
I also took some time out and made myself a comfortable skirt with one of those stretchy yoga waistbands to wear for class. I also did a matching messenger bag. Unfortunately, the only available photographer was my 15 year old Teddy, who managed to get only one picture with me even in the frame. This is it:
I suppose I should make a list, but I think it would scare me: collect, pack, create. But I can't wait for Wednesday, when I'll be on the plane to Virginia and I can't wait to see all of my Art Sistahs.
