In Pursuit Of Imperfection 9 A Lovely Dining Table made for Jackie

I got an e-mail from an old friend, Neville Imray this morning. He was congratulating me on my former students and the work they do. He had just had one of a series of follow up e-mails I send to people like him on my list of Rowden supporters. I replied, thanking him, saying they do all the damn work, I just wave my arms about. Then I went and looked at the e-mail that Neville had got. And I found this


This is Jackie Pedersons Wish Table.

It was made by David Redwine a wonderful guy who was with me some years ago. What is lovely is the story that he tells on his website OR the story  HIS CLIENT TELLS. Jackie tells you all the steps and stage from unbelieving to questioning to engaging in the process of having something wonderful made for you . Go see it here
