Class Reunion

Two years ago, a few women, most of whom had not met face to face, got together for a day of art and fun and conversation at Penny's house in Keyes, CA. Today, two years almost to the day later, we got together again, a few of us missing and one new face joining us. The fun was as lighthearted and happy today as it was at the past meet-up. Our group was smaller but the joyful laughter of women at play was just as great. Here is our little group.
Back row from left is Jane (New York visitor and the catalyst for these meet-ups) Charlotte, yours truly, and Denise - our new face. Front row from left is Aileen, Penny (Jane's hostess) and Lotus, Charlotte's daughter.
Aileen hosted our class today and taught us the intricacies of working with metal clay. We all came away with 6-7 silver charms made by our own hands. I haven't taken a picture of mine yet but will soon and will get them posted in the next couple of days.
