November now, and it’s growing cold. It’s also the busiest time of year for me as I prepare for my annual African Threads Christmas Sale. In the midst of the rush I took four days to go on retreat with some dear friends. We did drawing exercises, discussed our work, stitched and talked art for four days.
We walked each day in the natural beauty of of the Bay of Fundy and Annapolis Basin. Looking at nature’s mark-making in twiggy bushes and bleached branches. Each of us noting how lovely they would look stitched. Breathing salty air, enjoying each mindful moment.
We stayed up way too late each night, not wanting to miss a word or waste a drop of our precious moments together.
