First to LA
Spending time with my wonderful friend Ruth is always great.
We shopped and caught up on all our happenings.
Spent time together in Ruth's Studio deciding to do Seth's Finale for the Collaborative project
which Ruth has written about on her blog, check it out.
Then it was off to "Gilding The Lily" for some serious shopping in Nancy's wonderful shop.
Her taste is wonderful.
The trunk show was timed to coincide with my class.
It was a very special evening.
We had a ball and it was great to meet and get to know Joanna for the first time.
Then it was done to the serious business of teaching
Dede Warren, on the right was an amazing hostess.
Everything went so smoothly.
It really was a sensational workshop and that is due to Dede.
I would not hesitate to do any workshop that she organises.
I enjoyed her friendship, anything she could have done to make my life easy, she did
and i am so grateful for that.
It is so nice to be made to feel welcome when travelling so far to teach, I have experienced the
other side of that before.
So, thank you Dede, for your friendship, for organising the workshop
and for providing me with some great, great times,
and days and nights filled with laughter and joy.
I so enjoyed the company of my lovely co-artists
We really had a great place to stay.
Nearing the end of the class
And we even remembered to do a group photo!
After class it was time to relax and pull silly faces with Leslie - I think this is becoming a bit of a habit now
Then show Dede the fine art of Facebooking!
Dinner with Joanna and our adopted baby!
We hit it off right away and I am so glad she made the long trek to So Cal, just for me!
Now its time to prepare for my Philli Workshop.
