Oh, Susan, how I wished I lived where you live so I could experience your classes. sigh... Mahalo, thank you, for sharing announcements of your gatherings; ideas are abundant from the photos of projects.

I take that as great praise from someone who lives in Hawaii. Thank you so much. I'm glad you find the photos an inspiration.
