I had the most fantastic time teaching workshops at Topaz Crafts in Oswaldtwistle...I taught 5 in all in 3 days time. Hello to my new friends!!!!
I had to laugh because the bottom photo shows what the table looked like during a frenzy of stamping....they call this a "messy" class because of the free form style that I taught, I call if "messy" because of the table...tooo funny!!!
Unfortunately, Tom was off to a Football game the last portion of my class, so without my handy assistant, I did not think to get out my camera to snap shots of the rest of my students. I would have loved to get one of Paul and I together.
My mind is still spinning as I decompress from my adventures that took me to CHA in California (5 days), back to Chicago (for just a nights sleep and a load of laundry) on to Manchester UK (7 hour flight), a drive down to Birmingham UK (2 hours)for the Hobby Stitches tradeshow (5 days, 2 workshops, 3 days of demonstrations), a drive north to Lancashire, Blackburn and Oswaldtwistle for my final workshops. We flew home yesterday (8+ hours) just in time to beat the snow storm that has over 300 flights canceled or delayed at O'Hare airport.
This morning as I look outside, we are blanketed in snow which has the smallest of branches on the trees covered...I'll be out with my camera as soon as I drink a few more pots of coffee...lol.
I will write more tomorrow...for today though I'm going through some 100+ emails and sorting through my work assignments.
