"Miel. It was such an excellent weekend. I'm really glad we got to spend a little down time last Sunday after the workshop. I've been itching to make some ball sockets and do some chasing and repousse. Hope our paths cross again soon.
I thought you might be in Pittsburgh for the weekend. Would have been great to catch up.

"Hi John and Corliss--thank you so much for the question. Looking back at my text I see that I did a very bad job explaining my sales v. cost between the two years, and wish I had done a better job proofreading!
When I participated in the…"
Today was the last full day in the workshop before I shut for just over two weeks. I'll be in for the morning tomorrow, the workshop festive breakfast, the "Secret Santa" and then heading off to Brighton. Although I normally take holidays in my stride, this last three months since summer has been utterly crazy, what with commissions,…See More
