Back to School: Blog Triage Class Begins!

On Monday, I head back to my day job, checking id’s at Dartmouth’s Alumni Gym.

I love my job! Not only do I get to enjoy all the energy of a vibrant, Ivy League campus, but I get to make my warm, felt hats at the same time.

And for the next 4 weeks, I’ll be part of the online Blog Triage Class led by art business guru, Alyson Stanfield and creativity coach, Cynthia Morris.

My first assignment: determine who reads this blog.

I hope that this site is useful for my friends, family and hat collectors, who want to know more about my hats, how they are made, and what inspires me.

I also imagine that other fiber artists stop by on their search for embroidery inspiration and tips.

And I hope that the occasional hockey nut (who gets here looking for CCM brand hockey gear) is amused at the intersection of my passions for fiber art and hockey.

Am I close? Who are you, really, Gentle Reader?

Feel free to introduce yourself by leaving a comment. I’d love to get to know you better!

  1. I love your website, your blog, your smile and especially your hats. I was sorry to hear that you recently lost your mom. I lost my husband Bob 2 years ago on July 3. It’s a hard journey, this grieving. Enjoy checking those ID’s.

    • Thanks, Paula.

      Yes, it’s been an interesting dance, grief mingling with creativity, one sometimes blocking the other.

      Thank goodness for hockey!

      It’s fun returning to my silly day job. The people around here make smiling easy…
