You already know of my ongoing love affair with tropical hibiscus. Several years ago I drove south of LOS ANGELES about an hour, down a windy rural road, through a wooded area, until finally I landed HERE. It was a lovely day. Clouds frolicked in the sky. The sun shone on my hands on the steering wheel. I selected my little seedlings from a porch filled to the brim with hibiscus color varieties you can’t begin to imagine. I’m still happy with my selections.
In other non-hibiscus related news, summer vacation is warm and delicious. After lolling about in the sunshine, taking daily naps on the chaise lounge out back, staring out the living room window, and watching back to back episodes of So You Think You Can Dance I am at long last ready to roll out Stencilry 2 in the form of STITCHED & STENCILED. And I decided to have it be a la carte. An easy summertime committment.
It’s all I’ve been thinking about and working on for the last few days. I’m not just a little bit excited. I’m a-lot-a-bit excited! Pre-registration begins NOW. Class starts August 10th. I know I’m limiting myself with this class by having a sewing machine be a requirement, and by only opening this up to my estudiantes brilliantes from the previous two Stencilry courses, but I have to go in the direction that thrills and delights me even if that means only a few of you will be along for the ride.
