I still hop up every few minutes,
to make a cup of tea,
twirl my spindle in front of the stove,
admiring the morning light on my messes.
What, I wonder, will people see--
what will you see if you've signed up--
when Rebecca Mezoff and I
have our live webinar on Thursday?
(That's Thursday, 15 November at 10 AM Mountain Time).
right about where I'm sitting now
(though I'll have to do a little re-arranging
to avoid screen glare and so on),
and I wonder
if my working messes (un-styled),
are fit for company.
But then, so what?
It's tapestry we're going to be talking about,
and Rebecca and I have such love and enthusiasm for this medium --
are so entranced by all that it can do,
that sharing work in progress is half the point, right?
We had such a fantastic time
creating and filming the Fringeless Class,
that I'm really looking forward
to this spontaneous conversation.
Indeed, it thrills me to bits to think of you joining us.
(It's free and everything -- I think I"m supposed to say that)
as Mrs. Ariadne Oliver said to Hercule Poirot,
"You never know what is going to happen"
when doing a live chat on the interwebs--
and that makes everything extra thrilling.
at least in these days before we start--
because I'm talking a great deal about this talk,
(or at least writing about it on various platforms),
yet not actually doing it.
travels and parties and events
and certainly tapestries--
never turn out as a gal imagines.
The reality of the moment is the point.
But I"m overflowing ideas
of things you might want to hear about
(not least these cuffs/ bangles and bracelets I've been making),
even as I know that some fabulous question
you're burning to have answered
will change everything!
to stop second guessing you
(much less myself)
and to go back to the loom,
nestle another green oval,
amidst the warm charcoal fuzz of shetland yarn,
and see if this cuff can be released from the loom
to wear on Thursday.
See you then!
ps -- If you are interested in hearing our conversation,
(or asking a question ahead of time)
but can't make it to the actual webinar,
it will be recorded,
If you register,
the 'bonuses' will still be available.
At least I think that is how it works!
in the last couple of days,
so if for some reason the other links don't work
you can get to the registration page via Rebecca's BLOG
and click the big black button about half way down.
