Virgin Post

I thought that in addition to chronicling my adventures with wool, I would post about my adventures with fabric.
Way back in another lifetime, I was a Textiles, Clothing and Design major. When my institution decided to cancel the program in my junior year, I quit college for many years. When my (then) employer told me I needed a degree to progress (and that they would pay for it), I went back to school and earned my Bachelor's in Marketing (closest business subject to anything even remotely creative). That was in 1999.
Fast forward to 2006. I graduated in March with my MBA.
Why am I telling you this?
I work in a fast-paced, driven field (healthcare). Being the totally right-brained critter that I am, by the end of the day - I'm drained both physically and mentally.
It's the art that keeps me sane.
For now, I'll leave you with a photo of a doll I made at a workshop given by the Goddess of Beaderly Delights herself, Annie Hesse. Doesn't she look fantastic against my "Belgium Chocolate" dining room wall?
