Remember Summer?
As I sit here is my basement office watching the frost form on my glasses, I am reminded of those hot, humid days of summer.
Ah! Summer! When fruit was fresh and the only thing chilly was the ice cream I served with it.
Here’s my little plum basket hand-stitched with Size 8, fresh and bright as a summer’s day.

It Stitches Like Butter!
On a cold winter’s day I like to hand stitch wool. It is such a cozy feeling! I feel like a character in a Laura Ingalls Wilder book
Here I’m using my hand-dyed Size 5 thread in the Rainbow Medium colorway and a Size 3 embroidery needle. Looks like some sort of buttonhole stitch to me.
A cup of hot chocolate would be good right now.
Gotta go!

Faculty Meeting
While dodging snow and ice storms, the Chicago School of Fusing, held a loosely organized faculty meeting this week. There was much discussion about forming a union and picketing the Administrative Offices demanding MORE STUDIO TIME!!!
But as always, after a little drink prepared by Frieda, a home-made dessert from Judy, and some wild tales told by Anne, we all calmed down.
Because Melody was unable to attend the faculty meeting, Jane Sassaman provided the tap dancing on the table top while wearing a pair of Emily Parson’s miniature hand knit socks (made with her hand-dyed yarn).
It’s good to have friends with a sense of humor!
