Yer killin' me!! ROTFL... I can see it all now: walking away singing at
the top of our lungs..and THEN there's breakfast!!! Could be highly
It makes me sad to report that Jill won't be at this Rdale - first time
she hasn't come. She has been taken up by some basketry conferences and just
can't do Rdale this time.
Adrienne, there won't be a Ravensdale next year. If there is one, it
would be in 2002 as they run two years apart. However it is always a
question as to whether there will be another one because the NWPCG votes on
whether to do another each Sept. after a Ravensdale. So far, it's been
unanimous and the money has worked out...so we'll see in Sept. whether 2002
will see a Ravensdale.
On a serious note re: walkies - since I am teaching all day Monday, I may
not walk with you until Tuesday - I have a lot to set up...one of my classes
will have taken over 100 hours to prepare for when all is said and done!!!
Not exactly what I had in mind, but, hey, such is life...and yeah, I'm STILL
working on it...
