So we went a step farther than just having a lovely private meeting - I organized a great day. First we would visit the staff in the Textile Department of the MFA and show them the casket and have them show Janet some of the yummy ones they own. Then we would come back to my place and I sent out invitations to all the COC students in the adjoining states (about a 1-2 hour drive) and see if any of them would like to join us. So we had viewing party for several hours.

I know it is long - about 25 minutes - but if you are the type that would have loved to have been there or a fly on the wall - you can be. The first few minutes where she explains the outside is really the best as it tells all of what we have missed.
It was a good day and made all the work on the course worth it.

|This is the secret drawer in the pincushion. If you didn't realize the answer to the question 'how|
long did this take by then..." We all laughed and laughed!
|The small corner of one side - look at the work on that castle!|
|We added many other objects around the room for people to enjoy and look at as well.|
|COC student Kim Mitchell's daughter Arilyn is a harpist and offered to add music to our gathering -|
it was amazing. She is a mind-blowing musician and we enjoyed her expertise in our midst.
