Turned out great in spite of itself!  We set up at 8 a.m. in the pouring down rain and it dwindled down to a drizzle that lasted most of the morning! We, who choose to do outside shows, are a hardy bunch for sure!  We make the most of it and as luck would have it ~ around noon, the sun came out!!  And so did the shoppers!!  These pillows were for sale  after I did the proddy edging at the show ~ I'll have them for Malabar in a couple of weeks!   

Sonny bought this great 'blue bottle tree' from one of the vendors!  He had so many to choose from and since it has a blue glass gem hanging in the middle of the sunburst, it seem fitting for all the blue bottles that I've had stashed for just such a thing!!  It's perfect in the garden and there are even a couple of extra  blue bottles for the next tree! Sonny also picked up a bunch of sweet annie for me ~ my manfriend was on a roll!!!
This is a bottle tree we saw at a winery on Put-in-Bay a couple of weeks ago.  I meant to show this to you before but it fits right in with this post ~  a bottle tree that's all grown up!!  We might need another one somewhere else in the garden because there are more 'bottles in waiting', so to speak!! 

Actually, at the end of the day, Saturday was quite fun!  I saw my dear friend, Linda, who has had quite a year healthwise and I can tell, she's got her mojo back!!!!!  A great smile, a great attitude and it made my day to see her in my booth!!!!!!!!!  Lauren and Sheila and Joan and Susan and Jane stopped by and so many rug hookers that love wool!  We're grateful for each and every one!  And Terri stopped by ~ twice!!! 

On the way home, we stopped and had a great dinner at Skyway East with our friends, Vivian and Lou!  We were all really tired but can always take nourishment ~ as I said ~ a great day!

Yesterday, I attended a wedding shower for Sonny's niece ~ my sister-in-law, Pam, did such a great job decorating the tables and preparing the lunch!  It was a fun afternoon!  Today, I'm taking a breather and trying to re-group!  The hooking room is calling ~ when I do a show, it's as if the room were turned upside down and is waiting to be turned right side up again!  We're having a group here Friday afternoon, so I best keep on the move!!

Thanks to all who came over to Quailcrest Saturday!  We'll be at Malabar Farm the end of the month for the "In the Spirit of Friends" show ~ put it on your schedule!!! 

Have a good day!

Hi Alice, Wish I could have dropped by too - but it's Cross Country season at our house. My current post - the hooked piece I'm working on right now - the flowers are wool from you - love the hand dyed wool. Thank you for providing such a great product!

Love Sonny's bottle tree - I have my eye out for one too. I would love blue bottles, but purple and gold ones would be great for Carrie's Graduation party next spring.

I love those beautiful fall pillows. The proddy edge ijust make them special.
That blue bottle tree is a great garden decoration. So much fun and a nice splash of color in the garden in any season.

Alice ~ What fun to see you and have a few minutes to chat. It was great to see Linda, too.
My bottle tree is still naked.
Hugs :)

Hi Alice,
Love your bottle tree... the blue gem makes it so pretty! The pillows are too cute! One of these years I must make it out east to meet you and all the great hookers there! Sounds like so much fun when you all get together! Enjoy the rest of summer and best of luck at the shows!!
