Ahhhhh...a bit of spring fighting with sunny bunch of daffodils laughing at snow swirling outside my dining room window...
Just wanted to share a couple of exciting things with you! My friend Patti (of the PATCHWORK PINE workshop fame) somehow convinced her husband Dave that I might be interesting podcast-fodder. Dave and Patti visited me at home a few weeks ago...we enjoyed conversation and cookies at this very table...the ensuing interview can be found by visiting this website:

And, it's once again time for AN ARTFUL AFFAIR!!! This will be our first spring show...hope you all can are the details:

And little Star cares not a whit about ANY of this...she's content enjoying her newest cozy place to roost (-:
Have a cozy day!
Thanks for "listening"...

Recently, I had the pleasure of teaching PATCHWORK PINE to a lovely group of ladies who also happen to be dear friends. Patti, Esther, Pat, Linda, and I gathered on three separate days: first at Patti's home; then at Linda's hotel suite (that's a story for another day); and lastly at Pat's home. We shared fine food, fellowship, and of course, punching! It warmed my heart to see the trees "growing" see my humble design coming to life in their skilled hands. Take a peek...

Gluing proved particularly creative...
...and fun...
...and just a wee bit messy (right, Linda?)
And I'm so proud to say all the ladies not only finished their PATCHWORK PINES, but also did a beautiful job!!!
Oh, and I had to bake special cookies...
 Thank you, with love and hugs to Patti, Esther, Pat, and Linda! And to everyone out there, thanks for "listening"!
