I just got (gently) roasted by my sister for not updating what has happened since my last post?
Well, my 'Discworld' entry won the first place award - I got STUFF! There were some wonderful entries in the challenge, so I feel fairly chuffed that 'Ella Saturday' won.......since I made her, she appears to have a life of her own!
Meeting and staying with Linda Apple in Columbus was a blast, as was meeting Cody, Judy and others I only knew as online presences.
Had a fabulous time at Annie Hesse's teaching a three-day class - what wonderful students - what a great host Annie is! That was in green, green, green Kentucky.
I'm now in Maryland at Rose Gibbon's house in the beautiful Maryland countryside having a few days R&R before a class here at the weekend, and then another one next weekend.

I leave at the end of the month, and due to airline stuff-ups, I can't get home until June 3, so I'll have a couple of nights in Brisbane. Oh well, at least I'll be able to sleep off the jet-lag, if nothing else.

I've got lots of pictures to post when I get home.

All in all, it's been a fabulous trip, but I'm looking forward to getting home now.

Hi All!
I'm having a great time here in Columbus, Ohio as a hanger-on at the AFIC conference. It's great to meet other artists, many of whom I have only encountered in the bloggosphere - it's wonderful to put faces to the names and hang out a bit with them.
I'm off to Kentucky next week to teach at Annie Hesse's place - I'm looking forward to seeing her again. I last saw her in 2003, and I was in pretty bad shape - 2003 was my 'annus horribilis' healthwise.
