i’m home, but not really here. i’m still somewhere on lummi island. roaming through the tall trees, walking along legoe bay, watching the eagles, and always. always. keeping one eye on the great white watcher – mt. baker. the pacific northwest cast a great spell, like a net, over me. i’m already plotting how to get back. lummi island is magic. i might say that about everywhere i go because it’s easy to fall in love with places when you have a serious case of wanderlust, but i mean it. pure magic. the kind they write stories about. that you dream about. that you want to be real. that kind.
anyway. here’s some of my travel journal.
people in STITCH*BOOKERY i’m going to be walking you through the process of making this book. i may have found the perfect travel journal of all time.
if you aren’t in class i’m still sharing pics right here on DFLA. and eventually a video flip through.
because i’ve had quite a few messages on facebook and emails i feel the need to explain my thinking behind registration for this summer’s online class adventure. i refer to it as a “live” class because i’m in the process of releasing it right now. people are very active in the facebook group. it’s kind of like being in a room full of excited people. however participation is not mandatory. you watch everything at your leisure and you decide if you want to interact or not. completely up to you. you begin class and end class at anytime during your membership period – 1, 2, or 3 years. still with me?
on august 8th registration closes and stays closed until sometime in late october when i reopen for the november “live” session. then wash rinse repeat. i’m testing this method out to see if i like it better than leaving registration open all the time. many people who sign up for my classes seem to enjoy participating with a big group of people who are all making/swapping/sharing stuff at the same time they are. once the initial flush of the “live” class is over everything can be revisited as often as you want for as long as your membership lasts. if you registered for this first session but are delayed in getting started, there’s another “live” session on the horizon and other crazy kids with whom you can play. or you can choose to jump into the fray everytime there’s another “live” session and see what’s going on with the new kids on the block.
on the morning we left the island a thick shelf of fog hovered over the island. oh the enchantments of the natural world are great, aren’t they?
hope you’re good in your worlds. see you soon!
