since i'm in vermont, i'm actually closer to toronto than you, it would appear.  i'm pondering driving instead of flying so i might take the fam with me.  but school is still in session, so i'll have to weigh that.  have getting the passports penciled in for late fall so i'll have them on time.  i've never been to toronto so i'm excited about going.  i'm glad you'll be there.  i have to make time to meet up with you to just chat.  i love your work and would love to just talk.  thanks so muhc.  anne

Thanks so much Jan!  Your enamel work is incredible, so it means a lot to have a compliment from you! Yes, I hope to be at the next guild meeting.  Enjoy your summer, Patsy.
