drive to LA with a buddy, have dinner at a great place, meet up with another buddy who moved away several months ago - reunion!! -
and take a necklace making workshop at French General as part of their Art of Craft weekend.
Saturday: play with grandgirls while one daughter goes to doctor (asthmatic bronchitis), and son/DIL go to the movies (Hobbit 2 - excellent!)
Sunday: drive back to LA,
intending to take just the tapestry weaving workshop -
this will be a pincushion once all the tails are woven in and the backing sewn on -
and end up staying for the iconic shrine workshop
when there's a late morning cancellation for the sold-out class. Score!
Hand-sewn antique pearls and gold rings,
flowers dipped in wax,
old book pages - with sheep!
Surprised me that I enjoyed this workshop so much. And next year? Pretty sure I'll be signing up for the entire weekend.
