Today is a packing day for returning to Lopez...but a different kind of packing: all things geared toward the Studio Tour. Completed baskets, woven sculptures, earrings, beaded boxes and necklaces - plus display tables and covers, samples of different materials, and stakes for signs. The easy part is packing unfinished projects - perfect for demos in a variety of techniques.
It's only natural to think about next year, though...and if I'm on the island full-time by then, how different the preparations for the tour might be.
But for now - I'm packing!
