I was very fortunate to have attended a workshop on November 14, 2013 hosted by the the amazingly talented, charming, and hypercreative Charlotte Diamond.

On sale were some amazing felts, including the “made-in-Canada” Slippery Fish, above. Not cheap but excellent quality!

And… I won a copy of Ms. Diamond’s new board book, Slippery Fish in Hawai’i, charmingly illustrated by John Aardema. Nice! (I was feeling lucky that afternoon!) Thanks for being a great teacher, Ms. Diamond, and thanks for the autograph and this one:
