Well... time passes, doesn't it?

It's been over a month since I saw this beautiful sight on the last morning I spent at Lillian Smith Center--


Many days and quite a few miles have passed by since then but I'm still basking in the sunlight of that mountain top experience.  I hope I'll be spending time there once again in the future.  It's truly a special place.

Between then and now I've had a chance to see folks I grew up with when we had a class reunion.  I've gone to Asheville a couple of times--once to have photos done at Tim Barnwell's studio and another time to visit the Southern Highland Craft Guild fall show and to spend a couple of days at friends' place near Sapphire, NC (and photograph their bounty of Yates apples and some of the glorious surroundings).




I've finished the bloodroot tapestry mounting; started a tapestry based on a painting done while at the Lillian Smith Center and am almost finished with it; warped the large loom with a 60" wide warp to do a piece from another painting completed at the Center;






I've also taught a brief intro to tapestry for the weaving class at the university:




Oh... and had my tires rotated and oil changed.

I would love to take some weaving classes.....either from you or at the Dahlonega Campus. I'm 65, so not interested in a degree, just want to learn as much as possible as soon as possible. I don't have a loom - just took my first weekend class from Ann Lynn Whiteside at a retreat a couple of weeks ago - so want to figure out what loom is best for me, etc.
Thanks for any help you might be able to give me.
