We welcomed Larkin Van Horn back again to the Hudson River Valley Art Workshops, this time to teach her workshop on Beaded Medallion quilts.
During orientation, Mark when on and on about what was not “allowed” to be done to our new fluffy white towels. (He was doing a little embellishing of his own with the towel “rules.”) No painting in your room, no wiping off makeup, no using at the pool, no cleaning shoes, etc. Mark even kidded that we were thinking of having the towels hung in locked plexiglas cases – just to keep the white.
Everyone joked about the towel policy for the next 3 days. (We don’t really have a towel policy.)
Then on the final evening the group presented Mark with a flagrantly misused white washcloth! Everyone had beaded, quilted, and kissed with lipstick a washcloth (one of our old ones, not the new ones).
The turtle on the washcloth in reference to the snapping turtle in the pool story Mark told people so that they wouldn’t try swimming at night in the dark.
It’s always a fun time with Larkin and we look forward to her return in the future.
