Not sure we'll be using the hot tub.... they are predicting snow flurries this coming Sunday!! So we are planning on layering our clothes: jackets, sweaters etc!
We are all excited about going.  Our trip will take about 13 hours of driving time plus stops for gas etc. I have done my test drive  of my son's HUGE truck... I can manage it but don't want to drive in St. Louis, Nashville, Chattanoga or on the very steeps grades in Tenn. Nor do I want to park it or back it up. I know I sound particular but it it HUGE!!
I plan on lots of pictures!

Here's a link to the school    

I'll be making the sweet grass baskets!!

Working like mad!!!

Bob, Robb , my s-i-l Ellin and I are going to the Campbell Folk School for a week's classes  at the end of the month!!   We rented a house for all of us ( on a small river with hot tub etc.) and are working on lists of what to take!!

But I have two online shows in November !!

I am working like mad to have things ready before we leave!!!  But  I don't want to insert my PayPal buttons until I am back!

Pumpkin season??

I really enjoy making pumpkins this time of the year... usually as an accessory for my bears or bear friends. But these two are on etsy by themselves.... etsyshop  .

These are made from a vintage Malden Mills long pile fabric.... bought I bought an interesting piece of mohair upholstery fabric with woven in stripes and texture. I dyed some of it... orangey of course... and will be turning out several more pumpkins shortly.
