My friend Meg heads out tomorrow for America. I first met Meg on a field trip to the Indian spice store. Then she popped up again in my felting class and we've been buddies ever since. She took all my jewelry and craft classes---even though she really didn't need my help as she has a natural talent for making jewelry. She's made beaded gifts for all her pals--including me (the yellow bracelet I'm showing you there on my wrist) and will dig into making her friend's wedding jewelry when she gets home, as well as pursue a second degree in library sciences. So if you live on the East coast, be watching for Meg in a library near you and tell her I said HI. Meg, we're going to miss your enthusiasm and warm personality around here. Hugs.
