Three finished projects to start off the new year! Project #1:  Hilde Morin workshop - January 16 & 17 Six of us - Marti, Janet, Ann, MJ, Hiromi and I - gathered at Hilde Morin's beautiful studio in her home in the Portland area for Hilde's "Curves & More" workshop.  Lunch break on Day 2 This shows only about 1/3 of Hilde's studio space.  We all left with "studio envy".  Over the two days Hilde skillfully shared her design and construction techniques for creating her curved pieces. (Than

I mean, there’s nothing wrong with pursuing your hobby, but it’s a whole different story if you’re trying to make money out of something you wouldn’t buy yourself.
