Roller Coaster

It has been over a month since my first and only blog entry and I have been on a roller coaster since then. The spiritual retreat I was leaving to attend was one of the most amazing and uplifting weekends I can remember. It had quite an impact on me!

Soon after it became apparent I would need to travel again to my parents home in Iowa, and in a whirlwind trip I flew out, packed up all the belongings my mom and dad wanted us to keep in our Kentucky family homes before they sold the rest, and then drove over 16 hours straight in a rental truck with a 15 foot bed. Whew!

Getting back to some semblance of normal has been my goal since my return. I woke this morning with a new handbag design buzzing around my mind so I'm glad I've relaxed enough to get the creative juices flowing again.

I have spent the last several days doing my homework for my next Peer Advisory session with Kathleen O'Brien next week. I've done a lot of planning and organization to get my weaving business on the road again with style.

You might be interesting in seeing the work I've done on my Lacetree Weaving web site, which you can see at , which, though not complete, has several events you might be interested in attending. I have a piece in a Gathering Artists collaborative exhibit, called the Red Thread Project, at the Community Arts Center in Danville, KY in October through mid November. And you can come see my new studio and our farm during the Lacetree Weaving Studio Open House and Garden Sale on November 5th and 6th. I hope to have several of the new style handbag available by then. Please check out the News and Events page on my web site for more information.

The summer garden is winding down and I've cleared some of it for winter. Soon the summer garden will be put to bed with either mulch or cover crops. I will write a blog soon on fall and winter gardening and hoop houses, two subjects dear to my heart. It isn't too late to look into planting for fall and winter crops.

Until then, love and light, Fox
