Summer To Fall Transition

When school starts my quilting production decreases dramatically.  While I miss the quiet hours in my sewing space, the rhythm of life is all about change and it isn’t a bad thing.


Last week (the second week of school) was our traditional Opening Camp, aka “School in the Woods.” Starting Wednesday afternoon and through Friday afternoon, we take approximately 180 students, the teachers and many brave parents camping.


We try challenging games.

Make a cooperative art project.

Play in the water.


Sleep (at least a little).


and generally have a great time. (See the BIG hat—That’s me!) Such a valuable way to get to know the students better and to get the year off to a happy start!
