Yeah, finally made it to TNK - Tuesday knit night after way too many weeks. Had a very relaxing time and got several rows done on my feather and fan.

In March my sister and I did a weekend show in Virginia Beach and on Mother's Day weekend Gerald and I did the Gosport Arts Festival in below. I really love my new kiln because we can make larger pieces.

Gerald and I have also been taking a lampwork bead class from
Brad Pearson who is the most amazing lampwork artist and a great teacher. I'm now saving up to go from my Hothead torch to a minor burner (it uses both oxygen and propane). The good thing about Gerald taking the class is he no longer warns me not to burn down the house! I'll get some pictures of our beads on another post.

Great show people were lined up around the convention center before the show opened. Packup was so easy - only brought home 7 pieces!

       Gosport Art Festival - Old Towne Portsmouth:
Mother's Day weekend, the weather was perfect Saturday. Sunday early showers but cleared shortly after the show opened. The sponsors put on a amazing dinner for the artists, they treated us like royalty......then we had to return to reality on Monday.
