Goodness. I began this blog 3 times last night and got distracted with other work, then I succumbed to sheer exhaustion. It was if I had a hand on my shoulder holding me back.
Its the wind down after a long tour.
Looking back, its been an inspirational tour. I've loved every minute of it.
I am so lucky that I get to meet the nicest people. My friends in Ireland on the tour and class, friends in Alamogordo, New York, LA, Long Beach, Taos and Santa Fe.
A number of people came up to me when I was photographing yesterday and mentioned "I know you, I read your blog, or I follow your videos on the Quilt Show" well, thank you for being interested. I really do appreciate your sentiments.
My camera has captured my life in images and I've documented it in words in great detail on this tour. I'm putting it into a book this time.
Even though this is my Sabbatical year, I had to take a break to fulfill commitments overseas but my mind and heart is never far from the huge body of work I'm undertaking at home.
Wednesday I arrive home with new ideas and a burning desire to continue with the Bayeux, early mornings, strong coffee and creativity in the studio.
I'll have open arms for hugs from the children, family and Grandchildren.
