My Dyslexia

Having the skill to write, spell, and punctuate has never been my strong suit. Growing up as a young child I was always nurtured to be creative and artistic which came naturally to me but I could never quite grasp written language. I now know that it's a learning disabilty with a name: DYSLEXIA.

I write from the heart and I make my best effort to get the words on the page properly but as you'll see I don't always succeed. I ask you to enjoy what I write and post but to be understanding and kind. Brian

The Retreat Project

Well Ladies and Gentlemen here is the piece that we created in my first retreat I had nine wonderful students That just blow me away with there skills and there enthusiasm and a drive like I have never seen the likes of.
I am bursting with pride for this being my first retreat. Everything went as planned and I know I had more fun with the student then they had with me.
The energy in the room was so much fun to keep up with and yet I had to lay down in the middle of the day Saturday. I could not stay awake any longer After 30 min I was back at it again.
The students work was truly something to be proud of.
We also had a few extra people with us--my Mom and my Aunt Dee. My Mom and Aunt Dee worked on some embroidery pieces as well. And what fun we all had sharing stories and trading tales, and a nice glass of wine did not take away from all the fun. LOL
Just a quick thanks to all nine of you , you know who you are, for what will go down as a great retreat to get my feet wet. You have made me look forward to so many more. Brian

A great BIG thanks to Kevin for all the help with the blog and for the help keeping everything running smoothly for the ladies, carrying bags and making everyone of us feel comfortable. Thanks Kevin

Thanks Brian (and Kevin) for a great retreat! It was my first one, too. Enjoyed the time to just sit and stitch, learn new things, make new friends, and see the campus. I would highly recommend this to anyone. Can't wait for you to get moved and start the classes here!
I was just in Virginia in a quilting store that was teaching a Crazy Quilt class using their Bernina Machines. I shared about the retreat and your book. She wrote your name down and the book title. Hope I got you some business!
