Hands on Art show

What a busy weekend for both Dan and I!! We participated in the Hands on Art show at the community college. Dan painted rain barrels and I made paper and also had a display of tatting, crazy quilting, and a fiber art montage. We had such a good time and met a lot of people! In between my demonstrations I wandered around to see what some of the other activities were and was so impressed by all the different forms of art. I wish I could have made a few different things! My sister Marlene was there also she wrote and illustrated the book I know Where The Freighters Go, so she was showing kids how to draw freighters. I was pretty nervous to start as this was my first event of actually participating and demonstrating but after a couple times I really enjoyed it and had fun talking about what I love doing! How did you spend your weekend?

Eastern Market

Some days are just close to perfect and this was one of them! My sisters Kathy, Marti, and myself met up with Kathy's daughter Jamie at the Eastern Market. We talked, walked, ate, watched drummers, singers ( Marti even did a duet!) milled through shops, bought fruit, veggies,flowers, and cheese. It was a perfect day all the way around. We all agreed we'll have to do that more often......I can't wait! Hope everyone has a Perfect Day this week! Wendy

Winter Scene Blocks

I know it sounds a little early but by the time the round robin is done it'll be winter, so here are the 6 blocks I did, I'm thinking I'm going to make two separate bell pulls from them one with the top 3 and another with the bottom 3.
