Our Studio Tour weekend could not have been better – the weather was glorious and that brought many visitors to our studios. It was a fun weekend of chatting with people who were visiting our location for the first time, reconnecting with folks who have been coming for many years and oh – having too much fun with my guest artists. I am so lucky to have found a group of artists whose work I love but also who are very special people.
Buttttt…did I get any hooking done – well!!!! not much! But I did finish off a purse flap. I had a ton of dirty worms (not those wiggley guys from the garden) and dug up a free pattern for a purse that Karen Kahle had posted on her Primitive Spirits blog some time ago, adapted it to my own purse design and hooked it. Today I finished it off. It is old and antique looking – kind of like me! I found a lovely vintage crackly button that worked perfectly et voila – a finished purse.
On Saturday I will be a vendor at Fleece Festival in Woodstock. This is a fabulous one day event – many fiber artists and vendors in one big location. So if you are anywhere near the Woodstock/London Ontario area try to make it to Fleece Festival on Saturday – hours are 8:30 to 4:00. There will be vendors of felting supplies (my good friend Wendo!), rughooking supplies, yarns and fibers – just tons of stuff. A good place to treat yourself!!
Soooo, I won’t be posting for a few days but hope to have some pictures to share of FF when I get back…
