Minnie the Cat ~ all done!! This was my Sauder class project ~ designed by Lucille Festa of American Country Rugs ~ our teacher for the week! One of my friends liked it so well, she ordered a pattern for herself! Can't wait to see it, Sue!
I also finished my hand-torn crow from Heavens to Betsy, using my scraps!! I'm on a roll! So many unfinished pieces and going to two hooking classes in October!!
These were done by Marge Dreher ~ my talented neighbor at Quailcrest a couple of Saturdays ago. The sheep are needle felted and the miniature painting is of a hooking studio ~ both beautiful! The show was well attended and we had a great day ~ except for once again, having another small sheep mat stolen! We couldn't believe it happened again. Very disheartening to have my creativity and time consuming work taken right out from under us. There are opportunists everywhere ~ it makes me feel like I can't safely display my own work anymore but I refuse to let a common thief steal my joy as well. We had a great day with beautiful weather and stopped for a yummy dinner with friends, Lou and Vivian, on the way home ~ very grateful for all the good things that happened that day!
Friend Vivian and I went to the Country Living Fair last Friday in Columbus, where this huge display of gourds and pumpkins caught my eye! So many shoppers ~ hard to believe that so many of us waited in line on the highway, waited in lines to park and then waited in line to pay a lot of money to get in the gate!! But it was a fun day for sure! I talked to a customer today in New York and she said ' you gals in Ohio have all the fun things going on'!! She may be right!
This recycled jeans jacket was one of my purchases! Vivian assured me that it looked good on me so I happily took it off the artist's hands ~ I only needed a little encouragement ~ her booth was very popular!! I also got a handwoven rug for in front of the fireplace and a carved whale for the condo ~ and passed up lots of other fun stuff!!
That's it from here ~ office work as usual looming in front of me and a show next weekend! No rest for the wicked, they say!!! Whoever 'they' are!!
Ta ya for now!!
