Pure Craziness!

I haven't posted lately due to the fact that my life has been a whirlwind the past several weeks.  After getting done with the Carolina Designer Craftsmen Show I had shopping, cleaning, decorating etc. to do.  Company arrived and that meant cooking and entertaining.  Christmas came and our daughter and her fiance decided they'd get married.  Not in a few months or weeks but on Wednesday!  They did not want anything fancy.  So  a small family group gathered at the courthouse for a 5 minute wedding followed by a small dinner party/reception afterward.   Short, simple and sweet. 

Our company has now departed and my husband and I have no plans for New Years Eve or day.  I'd like to just sit back and do absolutely nothing for the next couple of days but QFAM (The Quilt and Fiber Arts marketplace) in Sanford is next week!  I spent the morning printing patterns and making kits.  I have some new ones that will be making their debut at the show.  The next two days I'll be dyeing wool (probably from dawn till I collapse).

Be sure to stop by the show and see what's new. For directions and hours of the show click here.

Busy, busy, busy time of year

Since the CDC show I've been busy. I've been packing all my booth paraphernalia away,cleaning and reorganizing my studio, Christmas shopping, wrapping gifts, decorating...whew I need a nap.

I did take some time yesterday though and went out to visit a clay artist on the Chatham County studio tour.
Tracey Broome creates  these terrific barns incorporating found objects and/or sayings and photos.  I think they're so cool.  As her sales have been so good this year she didn't have exactly the barn I wanted but was more than willing to take my order.  I can't wait.

My next show is the Quilt and Fiberarts Marketplace in Sanford, NC.  I've got some new patterns, kits and lots and lots of wool. 

Here's a coupon to print out for $1.00 off admission.
