I love doing shows – well I must admit 3 day shows are a bit long when you are old! or older! But how can I complain about hooking and talking with people about hooking and seeing friends that I have not seen in a while AND BEING IN THE SAME ROOM AS THE TRUFFLE FOLKS! Every year there is a new truffle flavour and NONE of them are what you would expect i.e. Satin’s Kiss is one of my favourites – dark chocolate with hot peppers!!!! The great part about being with the truffle people (Kathleen’s Kitchen), is that occasionally I get to serve if Jack or Kathleen are busy dishing out their delicious homemade gelato. So then of course I get to sample!!!!! and cut up the ones that I WANT TO SAMPLE! So if the weather holds it will be a great weekend for all.
I have added a Mitten class to my events list – to be held in my studio over 2 days. If you are interested please check details under events and get in touch to register so that I can order the correct number of kits from Tish.
I resurrected one of my older fall kits for the season – I am thinking punkins again and crows and all things fall-like! This is Crow on a Punkin and you will find this kit in my Online store. Imagine this mat (which hooks up quickly) on a small table or antique box with a great mini punkin (preferably a couple of orange and white ones) and some bittersweet – oh I need to start decorating!!!! This weekend I am working on a hit and miss oval mat in navies, oranges, rusts and tans – a small mat again for fall decorating. I think I might attempt another appliqued tongue border on this one. Would be a fun finish to a simple hit and miss.
