Absolutely Awesome

Just a really quick post because it is late and I want to try and get some more work done on my book! To day I had the extreme pleasure of doing a workshop with Judy Wilkenfeld, based on this beautiful book. This photo really does not do any justice to this masterpiece, there is so much detail and texture and depth, that can only be seen in real life.
Judy is a fantastic teacher, so sharing of her knowledge and passing on so many hints and tips that you walk away so inspired and wanting to try them all!

Our extremely gracious hosts, Sharon and Steven Manning opened up their beautiful home for the workshop and I tell you, their place is absolutely beautiful, just check out this view!!

And here is where we toiled away the day, having so much fun. The other workshop participants are all lovely ladies, and we are all having so much fun!!!

Thankyou Judy for a fantastic workshop that I am thoroughly enjoying, can't wait until tomorrow for more.
Thankyou to Sharon, your gentle welcoming manner puts everyone at ease and I have been so glad of the opportunity to get to know you a little better.
And a big thankyou to Steve for looking after us all so well and the delicious lunch!!
More tomorrow!!
