I arrived a day early and spent most of it in the Green Room (yes, it really is green) getting my materials organized for the DVD, while I watched Deborah Boschert tape her DVD and saw Pokey interview Ellen Ann Eddy for the show. Deborah does beautiful work with collage and sheers and it was a treat to see her at work as she explained every step.
Yesterday morning I had to be at the studio early to get ready for the two guest spots with Pokey. Here we are on the set, which is a lot prettier than the Green Room. I didn't shoot any photos behind the scenes because there is not much to see but a big room with tables; stuff for the next shoot spread out all over the place. And snacks, of course
I got to spend some time with Rebecca Kemp Brent http://www.rkbrent.com, who does beautiful red work embroidery and was also a guest on the show. We had dinner together last night after a hectic day.
During the day, Helen Gregory, Editorial Director for Interweave magazines, was taking pictures with her professional camera and I asked her to shoot one of Pokey and me, with my iPhone. Here we are, just before or just after the segment (who can remember? -- there was so much going on!)
Then it was Pokey's turn to take a photo of me with Helen, who has been one of my favorite people since she laughed when I got paint all over wall across the room last time I was there, just missing the camera man. We are still laughing about it. Helen was a guest on Pokey's show, too. What she showed looked so easy that I am almost tempted to try it myself.
