this long weekend is the last one before fall begins. this summer our studio and home was more bearable with air conditioning. I was fussing about the cost, but in the end it was the best money we ever spent. I am looking forward to the next few months - I love the busy hum of the studio. I still can't believe all the products that come of our studio mainly made by the two of us. I struggle so much with the notion of going bigger - getting a lot of the work made by others - I think that I have to start thinking that way - I don't think I can sustain it this way for much longer. part of the reason I didn't go back to teaching was because the studio needed more of my time.
we have a new calendar and it's sure to not disappoint - I wanted to show you the new design here, but it's going to be in the next BAH issue.
I do want to show you my new pattern "rain" or as john refers to it as my stitches. this drawing was adapted from a drawing I showed you from my sketchbook. it's fun to reinvent your ideas. I hope you like these new pieces as much as I do.
enjoy your weekend friends! and see you next week. xxa
