Home Again Jiggety Jog

A sunrise at the Folk School...I just returned from 2 weeks in the beautiful North Carolina mountains...I taught a faux finishing class, a stenciling class and I took a hammered dulcimer class...I came home with several new friendships...the ability to play some music...a new mountain dulcimer...and a bad cold...

I have missed every one of you and cannot wait to catch up on your news...I will be sharing photos of the Folk School and North Carolina views during the next weeks...

Here are some pictures of my faux finishing class...at left Sonia and Betty are painting ...at right is Linda painting as Mary Nell watches...

Muse Sensible Sandra is deep, very deep. She thinks long and studies every possibility thoroughly. And then she prays and waits for an answer. I have much to accomplish in the next few weeks...and I will need to get rid of this cold/flu and put my shoulder to the grindstone...in other words be sensible....

Today's aMUSEment - How often are you sensible? What is waiting for your attention? Make a To Do list of things to get done in September...

Hi Rebecca-
Sounds like John Campbell school was wonderful...learning the dulcimar! Wow..you are an inspiration! My mom taught silversmithing at JC School years ago and has always spoken wistfully about going back. Maybe someday I will join her for a visit there.

Hi, Rebecca! Oh, my goodness...I have been to the folk school myself. My parents have a house in NC about 5 minutes from that Folk School & we have been over there looking around a few times. It's a really neat place & from what I hear, it's a wonderful school. So glad you enjoyed it. It is a small world! I'd love to hear more about the faux finishing class you taught. I'll have to come back & read more.

Thanks for stopping by to see me!
