Just back from teaching at Rhinebeck – my heart is full and my brain is disastrously empty. I couldn’t find toothpaste at the grocery store this morning.

I have only a few pictures and they are all from my phone, so forgive the quality.

 

Beth Smith and I traveled together. We had so much stuff for our classes that we had to borrow her husband’s SUV because it all wouldn’t fit in my car.

My classroom sign. Happy sigh. I taught 6 classes over 4 days.

Into the Whirled’s booth right before the show opened. I may have shopped, and didn’t get everything I wanted. I left the Multipass colorway behind and at the end of the show there was none left.

Did some shopping at Into the Whirled.

Beth bought a hat. I called her Princess Anastasia for the rest of the show.

One day we went to the Me Oh My Pie Shop in Red Hook and had a pie appetizer before dinner. This is pear, ginger and sour cream pie. It was a s good as you think.

My students were smart, curious and game to try everything I threw at them. Tina from Nimblestix demonstrates how they felt at the end of class, exhausted, but smiling.

Did you know that both Jennie and Beth love Justin Timberlake?

My companions for the ride home: Jill Draper’s Empire, my Denise2Go needle set,¬† Starbucks and Pride and Prejudice on audio. The drive to Rhinebeck and back from Ann Arbor is almost exactly as long as an unabridged audiobook of P&P.

The haul. Even though we only had about an hour to shop in between teaching, I managed to shop. I even scored a Jennie the Potter Rhinebeck mug!

Rhinebeck goodies!

I’ll talk about the haul in detail another day, right now I have to do laundry!

    Jillian- I know your classes were an awesome success because I desperately wanted to spin and try out all the things I learned, as SOON as I got home. I see a lot of color in your Rhinebeck goodies. My pile is also colorful!

    Wow ~ you are in Ann Arbor? I am a lot closer to you than I thought. I am just west of you in Battle Creek. The haul you brought back looks lovely! Can’t wait for the details.
