Yes, an sunshine would really be a plus too! I have Friday off and will be visiting all the classes and vendors who are set up. I hope we get to talk somewhere in there. If you find time, come by my classes and give me a hug :-)

Janice, what nice comments! I am going to be at Wuertz and teaching three different classes. I hope you stop by to say HI :-) I have all day Friday free so I am going to be visiting classes, teachers, vendors and enjoying seeing friends, art and being a part of one of my favorite yearly happenings! We are looking forward to creating our very own WSGS gourd festival yearly "happening" which is very exciting for all of us here in Washington state! I hope many of those who visit the Wuertz Gourd Festival will come up and join us July 15-18 in Moses Lake, WA for our first gourd festival! Once again, come by and give me a hug! I look forward to seeing you Janice!
