count your blessings
the gift has arrived, so I can post the picture:
i love the lattice frame, it was a little more fussy to do than I expected, but I love how the finished piece turned out. definitely more to come.
Taught a beginning pmc class at church yesterday, it went really well. everyone asked for this to become an annual event. Our church does this big fundraiser called "Pick a Party" members plan parties, describe the event, it gets published in a booklet of all the parties (dates, cost, and all the details are listed). We go through the booklet, 'pick' the parties we want to attend, check our calendars and eagerly anticipate the morning we get to sign up. On a Sunday morning before church we gather in the coffee hour room and get reminder directions. "Be mindful of the folks around you, sometimes in your rush to get to sign up for your parties people get shoved unintentionally". It's wild and fun. There are about 100 parties to choose from lots of themed dinners, game nights, hikes, camping, retreats, use of time shares, children events, etc. This was the first year I offered the class through Pick a Party and it sold out :). I'll do it again next year too.
Lots of hearts created yesterday. Today, I'll be working on some more Valentine pieces.
