My perfect day....  
I had a GREAT day yesterday at the CGOA conference in Oakland. I took an all day class on designing in "overlay crochet" with Melody MacDuffee. It was so great to finally meet her and see all of her beautiful work in person. Her work is amazing. She makes jewelry in overlay crochet using sewing thread. The colors and textures are truly a feast for the eyes! Wonderful!!!

I started working on designing a pendant around a piece of dyed sea shell. I will post pictures when I finish it. I learned so much in the class about the technique and I had a chance to brainstorm with others on jewelry and crochet design. We discussed getting articles and books published. One of the other students showed us a couple of new crochet techniques. One was Romanian cord, which will be very good for fiber jewelry straps.

It was a very relaxing day away (better than a spa). I got to crochet all day long! What a wonderful day!!!
