Fused Glass Class with Friends





As I mentioned in my recent blog my friends; Julie, Melinda, and Pam took the Craig’s kiln formed Iris class together. I’ve talked about them in other blogs. Our last group class together was in New York. But I’ve also taken two Bob Leatherbarrow classes with Melinda and another class with Julie (in Missouri). And a Patty Gray class with Pam. We are also planning on another class with Craig next year. Yep we all loved the class that much.






We had such a good time and catching up with one another. These are very special ladies. I really enjoyed spending time with them. Friends are so important, especially one that you can really share your passions with i.e glass. (Pam, Julie, Melinda)



While my friends and I were in Lancing we stayed at the Wild Goose Inn. I’d like to give a shout out to the Wild Goose Inn. The owner – Al, the manager – Paul and of course Phil (Al’s college friend).







First it’s an amazing place, our rooms were so cool. Plus I loved that they had a touch of glass in the house as well. There was a beautiful patio where we had breakfast everyday. So relaxing and so fun. Here are a few pictures of the outside and inside of the Wild Goose Inn.











Additionally the Wild Goose Inn is just across the street from Michigan State University. What a beautiful campus. We walked around it every morning. I loved the river and of course the botanical gardens.










If you ever go to Lancing I highly recommend the Wild Goose Inn as a place to stay.

Also a great place to eat is the Red Hen, it’s a farm to table restaurant and the food was awesome. Here is a picture of the salad, edible flowers, isn’t it beautiful and the lemon meringue.
