Really wonderful paintings! I am seeing that you have embraced your new section of teaching well. I wonder if we will do more painting like this at Sunbridge?

I just had to stop by here this morning and thank you. I have been part of Waldorf my whole life and while I "have it down" I just love the inspiration you have often given me to go the next step. We write homeschooling guides for Waldorf and I love what I do, interacting with parents, etc... handwork though has always been this special place within me... I always feel perfectly content with some sort of needle (knitting, crochet... cross stitch, you name it!) in my hand and coming to your blog makes my heart sing. Your blog has convinced me to finally take the step and do the applied arts training... I am so excited to be part of the 2009 summer course! I can hardly wait.

Thank you for your wonderful blog!

Many blessings.
