Thankful Thursday - The Joys of Friendship and Collaboration by Penny L. Arrowood

The past two weeks have provided ready reminders for much of which I am grateful, not the least of which the sense of completeness that has ensconced the happenings here at Your Creative Connection!  We are now a solid TRIO for all of the wonderment that is our October gathering at Haw River State Park (10/11-10/15, 2018).   This addition comes with some glorious strings attached as our Special Guest Artist for Haw River ’18 is *among many other things* an incredible fiber artist!
