When I returned home  from the airport I spun up some of another  batt Sue gave me. Continuing  my spinning THEN it  will  be woven into  one of my pieces for  remembering freindships .... untill we meet again. It was a wonderful week...

sue wrote this on the saori forum on ravelry :

"It was a great day of learning and I enjoyed meeting student Caryl too. Together we wound warps out on Jill’s beautiful deck surrounded by fruit trees,birds singing and wind chimes gently adding music to the air. A wonderful lunch break and then back to tying our warps so we could remove them,some studio shopping ( Caryl got a wonderful jacket and I picked out some lovely Louet merino / silk spinning fibers. Then I learned how to use the cross holder and to sley directly to the reed. After that we slipped out of the studio and wandered through some fun boutiques in downtown Santa Cruz and enjoyed a great Mexican food dinner. I went back to my room to get a good nights sleep so I could be ready for Wed.I was able to learn so much at the studio and my visit to Saori Santa Cruz was everything I’d hoped for and more! 2 full days and 2 half days ….but time with friends is never enough! I know someday another trip to the studio is in my future. 
Thank you Jill for being such a great teacher and beyond that a wonderful friend "

peace, pace, pause, play
