busy, getting busier

and just a little bit sad.

I lost a friend over the holidays and it was all very unexpected and well, sad.

Judy you will be missed.

In life here, on planet John.......
I'm working on my website and this week (today) I'll be visiting with a friend who I haven't seen in harumfff...... years. more than 25 . that's all I'll say.

We will be running around Philadelphia, reliving our youth (haha) and then there will be a little bit of a knitting machine lesson. tips and tricks in my studio.

The plans for the store are moving ahead... Yes I am opening a shop in center city Philadelphia.... we get the lease in February and I'll fill you all in when things are really moving. If I can find the time..
OK gotta run. I'm trying not to drop the blog ball.

there's not many burgs i'd consider relocating from humboldt for, but i do believe philly is one of them. & w/ a new store, well, i better start packing bags now.

also, sorry for your loss.

Just got home from a memorial for a friend who died suddenly last Friday. Must be our age. My friend Liz McIlvaine will be at the Fabric Workshop for the next 6 weeks working on a tapestry for Ed Ruscha. Hope you two can get together. Can't wait to hear more about the shop. I love staying in touch in public like this! xoxo
