Sigh ---- what a wonderful experience!!!

Yesterday, we attended a six hour 'thread play' class with Libby Lehman. She was absolutely fantastic. I learned a lot about drawing and playing with thread (and other helpful hints). I was so 'up' all day and then came home and literally crashed. Oh yeah and guess what - I forgot to take the camera. Can you believe I could go to that class and not have the camera with me.

There were 31 one of us in there and she managed to give each of us all the unlimited attention we needed. She is an absolutely lovely, marvelous person and is exactly what I want to be when I grow up. She also had a wonderful trunk show with her - oh wait - I didn't have the camera so I can't share that part with you.

The kitchen fan is still up and I'm beginning to feel a little easier about walking underneath it. I mean, if it were going to fall down it would have done so be now - wouldn't it? It sure makes a huge differences in the temperature (and atmosphere) of our kitchen. This is one we should have done last year when we had the others installed.

The current storm is finally on the way out (4 - 6 inches in 3 hours) so I may go to the studio and play for a few hours. I want to practice while things are still fresh in my mind.

Hugs - Marie
