as a visiting artist
and it was lovely
I stayed in a cabin with a lakefront view, a well-stocked fireplace, room for 9 + women and a dock.
Cabin Kilkare with 8 fabulous women was a fun place each evening
as we sat around the fire and knit (or stitched)
Every cabin had an icebox from ice cut during the winter from Squam Lake
I wrote about the founder, Elizabeth Duvivier,
She is an exceptional woman
to have envisioned these workshop events and now they are 5 years old.
Over 200 people attended workshops at Rockywold Deephaven camps
at Squam Lake in New Hampshire last week.
I met interesting, intelligent and talented women from all parts of the country
and I gave a little informal talk on Friday night where I spoke a bit about my work.
I could see some eco-dying in the future there. Or some
deep discussions about how to tap into one's creative spirit
heal oneself and be a more well person.
I hope I might return one day.
I purchased a pair of little scissors from an Angela Liguori who owns
She was selling some of her notions during the Squam Art Fair on Saturday evening.
The scissors are from Italy and are extremely sharp and perfect for nipping at little threads.
I will be selling these special little scissors in my shop within the next week. Cheers!
