As mentioned in yesterday's blog (here)
I am lucky to be taking a two day weekend class
with the well known & popular teacher, Katie Kendrick.
Just as I had always heard, Katie is a fabulous teacher.

Katie gifted each class members with a copy of her recent work,

Really a great day, and we are all looking forward

And yes, Katie Kendrick really does glow!
Wishing you a wonderful Sunday too.
