|Monika & Michael (p.s. It's his birthday!)|
It was fun to watch people get closer and closer to my work. I love when they finally realize what they are looking at - all those little stitches. The wine was great. The food was great. Some friends came by and I even got a little wrapped gift of chocolates that I devoured on the way home ; ) (Thank you!!!). It was so nice to visit with Terry & Margot Lindsay. (Each colored name links to examples of their work.) They are both prairie artists - one paints and one stitches. Nicki Ault came by with some of her friends. She blogs and paints the prairie. You can see her work here. All of the craft council people were SO gracious to all the artists involved. Thank you for putting on such a wonderful event!
Of the items in the show, I really loved the soapstone and the glasswork too. The wood work was exquisite! I don't have photos to show you. I need to go back and take note of some of their names. I couldn't get over that storm photo taken by Craig Hilts, a storm chaser. That in itself is a craft I think! Yikes! Sunsets & sewing is much safer for me : ). You can see his photography here.
The bad news though, is that I was not there with 'bells' on. I was, however, there with a GORGEOUS bracelet! Thank you Grandma Coco for offering to let me test drive this gorgeous handmade beauty!
|you can see a WAY better photo of it HERE. It is SO pretty.|
It's Saturday now. There's a bit of a blizzard out there so I'm going to work on all the handstitching that is awaiting my with my new pieces. Hopefully I'll have lots of new things to show next week. : )
