We are in Minneapolis, visiting our son and daughter-in-law. We drove most of the way up on Thursday and finished the drive on Friday. On Saturday, I took a class from Roz Stendahl at the Minnesota Center for Book Arts, where I made a beautiful journal with a round back spine binding. I learned a lot, and Roz is an excellent teacher. Plus I love my new little journal. I will post a picture of it soon, I promise, but probably not until we return home (which will be Thursday). Wednesday evening, I'm taking Coptic Binding: Focus on Stitching from Sue Bjerke, also at the Minnesota Center for Book Arts.
The most amazing coincidence - after Roz took roll, first names only, "John" came over to me and said "You're Cheryl Gebhart, aren't you?". I said yes, but clearly didn't recognize him. He is John Payne, from my Love This Journal class and yahoo group. Neither of us knew that the other was coming to the class. It was so fun to meet in person, after knowing each other online for almost 2 years now. I also met his wife, who joined him for lunch, and is a quilter.
