IN THE SPIRIT OF FRIENDS SHOW ~ ~ ~


TOMORROW from 10 A.M. - 4 P.M.!!!!!!  Come join us at Malabar Farm ~ we'll be in the barn ~ with lots of dyed wool, as-is wool, hooks, frames, scissors, yarns, rovings, books ~ whatever you need for your rug hooking pleasure!! 

This pumpkin lady is looking for a home, too!  She's wearing antique children's shoes, hat and capelet and has on her best fall dress!!  She's been to too many Fall shows, so she's at a bargain price of $75!!!  Email me if you want her for your own before tomorrow!




 There are two of these Turtle Creek Pottery luminaries ~ this one ($95) and a smaller one for $65.00.  Great with a candle or a mini light under it for enhancing the soft lighting in your home!
 Bundles of dyed wool ~ things that I've had too long and am bundling them in like colors ~ great for backgrounds or anyplace that you want to mix colors!
These are still on my work table waiting to be stripped into 1/8th yard pieces and yarns to be packaged!  Whew ~ I've got a lot to do before tomorrow!  As soon as I'm finished here, I'm hauling things up to the garage, hopefully, before Sonny gets home!  He's worked hard all day and then we have to pack the truck and go set up!!  As usual, we pack a lot into a day!! 

Hope to see you tomorrow ~ think SUNSHINE for all of us down in the Pleasant Valley, home of author and conservationist, Louis Bromfield!  An interesting factoid is that Lauren Bacall and Humphrey Bogart were married in the big house at Malabar.  It's open for tours and Malabar's  Heritage Days are also going on this weekend ~ so there will be lots to do!!

See  you soon!

Alice, your pumpkin lady looks interesting, I'm sure she won't be around very long. I love those green and pumpkin color wool. I so wish that I lived closer. It surely would spur me on to hooking. Have a successful show and sale. JB
