July 4th weekend
Tomorrow is the glorious 4th of July and a day to celebrate our freedoms. It is a day of family, fireworks and festive occasions with picnics and barbecues. Take a moment to reflect and honor those who have sacrificed so that these freedoms may be ours to enjoy. May I wish all of you a blessed and fabulous 4Th!!!
Over this weekend, I am going to be teaching a freeform knitting and crocheting workshop at The Shepherdess in San Diego. It is located in the Old Town area and near a place called Bazaar del Mundo. Over 30 years ago, I used to sell handspun to that wonderful marketplace. It still is going strong with exciting goods by artisans from around the world. San Diego is a delightful place to visit and there is so much to see. It is certainly worth the trip.
The workshop should be lots of fun as this shop is a little gem of a place with a beautifully edited collection of gorgeous handspuns and hand-painted fibers. There are wonderful felting and beading workshops held here as well and the owner is a lovely woman and she has a friendly and helpful staff. I am anticipating a great time and plan to take some photos of the workshop. I have posted a freeform sample to give an idea of what we are going to be exploring.
