I'm so happy to be returning to Squam Art Workshops for my second session. This year I'm taking another class from Maya Donenfeld and I'm excited to be spending time with her again. She's one of the most soulful and inspiring people I've ever met. I'll be sewing the Squam sling, which is a great multipurpose bag from her book, Reinvention. I've already cut out my bag and am ready for Maya to show me how to make a fabric stamp to add embellishment to the outside of it. Pictures to follow for sure!
The other class I'm taking is with Cal Patch. More sewing for me, which I love because I've been wanting to get back to sewing for so long. I think I'll be getting much needed inspiration and maybe (hopefully?) a dose of confidence in my own ability to make something that actually fits me. I'll be making her Squam smock (she also has a book, Design It Yourself Clothes), though I haven't yet decided which length to make. There may or may not be pictures to follow of me in my smock - we''ll have to see how it actually looks on me!

There's much more to write about, but it's so late now, I need to go to sleep. I'll continue the "more than you ever wanted to know about road trips in New England" report in the next few days.
