WEll, I finally got to the comment box. Couldn't get to it last night for love or money. Anyway, just wanted to wish you a very MERRY CHRISTMAS and a HAPPY and PROSPEROUS NEW YEAR. I love your shop and your classes and I wonder why it took me so long to find you. Sure glad I did. See you in 2010. Hope to take lots of classes next year.
