summer is slipping by

Wow, August is just about over. Where has summer gone? I feel like I've done nothing summery, yet I've been busy as all heck. I've been a terrible blogger, but what can I say? It's summer and is anyone really reading anyway? I've had Dillon home, company and catching up on projects. I unexpectedly had some deadlines to meet which had me crazy busy for about 2 weeks (and a bit stressed to tell the truth). I'm finishing up my online class with Artful Gathering and now need to figure out how to do my dvd's of the class. (students have the option of purchasing a dvd when class is over). In a few months, I will be selling the dvd's in my etsy shoppe from my class, "Soldered Flambe". I also had a lovely overnite in NYC, visiting my friend, Pam. We walked 5th Avenue for Summer Streets, which was a lot of fun. Then we stopped for lunch before continuing to walk over the Brooklyn Bridge (also very fun!) I took this picture of the dragonfly in Brooklyn, down by the water.

So that's what I've been up to. headed back into the studio to finish to sewing commissions and then I have to get ready for all my fall obligations (teaching, hosting
Michael deMeng, more teaching and traveling). I also fly to Chicago and will be driving to Valley Ridge art studio with Pam to take a class with Flora Bowley (my birthday present!)
