My friend Cherie e-mailed me this morning.
"Girl! I wish you'd update your blog! I'm sitting here at the knee doc with nothing new to read!!!
Your bored friend,
Of course, Cherie can write anywhere now as she has an iPhone. She's connected to say the least. Cherie is at home now and probably not bored anymore. Nevertheless, Cherie....here's the update.
I've been getting kits ready for our weekend classes at Tomorrow's Heirlooms in Glen Ellyn, IL. It's wild around here to say the least. It takes about 3-4 weeks of work before we can hit the road for a teaching engagement. Now, I'm down to the final moments of putting it all together.
So Cherie....nothing is too cute here! Take a look at my work table.
I'm decorating some bags for the kits....found them at a shop a couple of years ago. The man who sold them to me said they were about 20 years old. He hadn't been able to sell them as they were yellowed with age. I told him they were perfect for me!
I'm using small portions of pages from an old cookbook that Barb gave me from her last estate sale. The pages are so old they fragment into pieces as I apply the glue. I imagine I'm sending people secret messages. "Cut your beans into small and uniform shapes." "sippits of toast" (What is a sippit anyway?)
I went out this morning and cut my white lavender and boxwood. A bit of floral whimsy completes the kit.
Hope you all have a wonderful rest of the week! Will report back to you on Monday.
