Not sure how I missed a blog post last month, but I did. And now it is mid-April. The "showers" have arrived. Grass and trees are very happy, but it puts a damper (pun intended) on my daily walking. Despite best efforts, I have come to realize that I am a "fair weather walker".
Lots of stuff going on in the studio. I hooked a little version of my Jeanius Bag (with a little proddy) for my front door, for the "shoulder season" - and I put some proddy flowers on stems in my front entry planter.
It's been a busy time with lots of Zoom teaching. The OHCG is hosting its first ever "Virtual Annual" and I am delivering 4 workshops. I am loving Zoom teaching for many reasons: the no-travel part is great. No loading things into the car - and having everything I need right there with me in the studio. Everyone in the comfort of their own homes - no masks!!
I think the students enjoy meeting and spending time with one another. And I share any "lesson in the moment" just as I would in an in-person class. One 2-session Jeanius Bag class done, as well as the first Hooking in the Age of Technology. Two more Tech classes to go. Then it's off to the Virtual School in Nova Scotia to deliver the Jeanius Bag workshop again.
Speaking of Jeanius Bags, the students who have joined me in this class are creating so many wonderful bags, and everyone is giving me permission to share. So here are a few to be dazzled by:
The first two were hooked by Karen in a workshop in February.
