Mondo goes back up North to the dealer for her end of season check up and Winterization this week. It will take all day they say. Yikes. I will follow Mr. in my car so that we can do some sight seeing during the day. I am very far behind in Mondo posts. I will work on that soon. Just too much going on recently.
This is the week of the Eleanor Burns event. I am packing up my supplies now. Can't wait.While Eleanor will not be attending as planned (she had heart surgery a couple weeks ago) she has fill-in's scheduled as well as designer Deb Strain is coming for a lecture and evening program.
My sewing friend and I will be staying overnight for each day of the event. With rush hour traffic we concurred that we would be spending more time on the road than sewing if not!
I am looking for a spark, some inspiration, a direction for my work. During the Summer I have lost my passion for the whole business. Not sure why but I have some ideas and I hope this event will negate all that and get me going again. This has never happened before. Of course, I have had lulls and waning interest in different projects before but not this near apathy.
Our sponsoring Baby Lock dealer (Gloria Horn Sewing Studios, Mt. Lebanon, Pa.) always has great opportunities to learn and experiment with new techniques. In the past taking a class or two has always helped me rediscover what I enjoy about the creative process. I am hopeful.
I hope to have some interesting posts to share with you next week or so. Toodles!
