Yesterday’s talk at Gossamer in Portland, OR was really enjoyable. We set up chairs in every available spot, amongst the wool roving, felt and yarn. The shop was full to capacity and Rose (above) was tickled pink to have so many people in her shop. I met the nicest people and several blog followers came, including Kristin Shields (below). Thank you to everyone who helped behind the scenes, including my sister Anne, her husband Dennis, and my husband Rob. We went out to a fabulous Peruvian restaurant afterwards! I’m off to San Fransisco tomorrow and will talk to illustration students at the Academy of Art University this week. Too bad that the presentation isn’t open to the public, or else I would have announced it. I’ll try to post something from S.F. later in the week.
