I am almost comatose, although I have had more stressful weeks, I am definitely done. A very exciting week nonetheless. One of the students in my department WON the Congressional Art show. Her artwork, a charcoal drawing entitled “Waiting for Dinner,” will represent the 2nd Congressional district of New York. It will hang for one year in the halls of the US Capitol in Washington DC. She also received tickets to fly with her parents to Washington DC for a special artists reception and lunch with Congress. (The tickets were compliments of Southwest Airlines) Very exciting time for our school. For myself, I was finally able to find a used Ashford spinning wheel on e-bay. It arrived Tuesday, and I put it together. I just haven’t had the time to sit and spin. Maybe Sunday. I’ll post some pictures over the weekend showing off my new (used) wheel.
