Taos Road Trip: Day 3


Here’s Danelle gleefully showing off her two days of weaving.

Just back from a dinner at the local favorite eatery, Orlando’s, where Sara and I met Abby Franquemont for some brewskies and chow. Abby had just come off of 6 days straight of teaching and we were impressed with the vigor and enthusiasm pouring forth from one mighty lady. It was a fun ending to a final (second day for me–finger controlled weaves)day of teaching. Tomorrow we’ll hit the Wool Market early and then hop in the car for Boulder.
