Handwork training



I just returned from a two week handwork training at Rudolf Steiner College in Caliornia. It was challenging to be away from my family for such a long time, but so wonderful in many ways. We got to plant dye wool and silks, knitted and crocheted through the grades 1-3 and attended a wonderful variety of classes. It was a very rich experience for me. My sweet sister even came down with her beau to spend the weekend in San Franciso. We headed for Muir Woods and the Sausalito farmer's market, then back to classes. I spent my birthday on a red-eye flight home, and was greeted at the airport the following morning with five bouquets of flowers and a welcome home banner! I love my sweet family. More photos to come.

That sounds like you had such an awesome experience! It is so hard to be away from the family, isn't it? My daughter gets anxious when I just go to knitting night!

Sounds like you had a nice time! Rick enjoyed meeting you in person. There's nothing quite like spending time doing handwork at that beautiful campus. So wonderful that you got to visit magical Muir Woods, too. :) --Jennifer
