This is the type of thing I will be teaching in America in September( at French General). Betty really enjoyed the planning meeting the other night as there is nothing a cat likes better than sitting on or getting under a large map. I know it is self indulgent to put pet photos on your blog but in this one she really is pointing to Los Angeles!

On Saturday I taught my popular "Enchanted Forest" workshop in a beautiful home studio in North Norfolk.

Here is how it was looking in the afternoon before we stuffed ourselves with particularly scrumptious cake.
