Loved receiving this card in the mail from my neice Kari, who is a textile student at NC State University. It has cute little pattern pieces all over, and I have been knee deep in patterns this week.
REBOOT week four has me finalizing my couture project for Susan Khalje's Couture School next week in Baltimore. Our homework assignment was to make and fit a muslin, or toile, which is the essential first step for any couture project. I am working on a jacket pattern and I'm a little frantic trying to get everything all packed up. But luckily my Mom helped me baste the muslin together.
On REBOOT week three, I unplugged on Ocracoke Island. I learned to appreciate daily sunsets, to look for the harvest moon, and to know what to let go of.
Edwards of Ocracoke provided classic accommodations, perfect for my relaxed classic style. The cottage was on a quiet less traveled street, offering the original charm of the village atmosphere.
REBOOT week two finds me cleaning out the workshop, and taking time to replace the canvas on my worktable. I love a blank canvas. This week I also found time to attend
Raleigh Little Theatre's production of "Art" by Yasmine Reza. Central to the theme of the play was a controversial white painting with white lines, but there was so much more to the story, and that is the art of maintaining close friendships and the consequences of letting them wither. I've always thought my friends have color.

Chapter 1 of the Reboot Your Life book begins with this quote that I love so much. It's been a great REBOOT week one. I took time to watch this butterfly as she struggled to unfold her wings before she took flight.
