Fun Night, Sore Feet

Ooh that was a many, many hours not wearing comfortable shoes.  Ow.  The show went terrific though.  It was a lot of work rearranging the room, and a few of us were left quite late putting it all back.  That was exhausting, but the turnout was terrific!  Arwen did a lot of work pushing all the banquet room chairs to the back of the hall, one by one.  (Way to go girl!  ; )

Arwen, up on crates in to look over the balcony.

I know - it looks like a big mess from here.  But it wasn't!  It was so nice to see some of my friends, local artists, my family & cousins, SQG members, Margot & Terry Lindsay, and even Wendy from Creative House came!  (Nice surprise!).  Luckily, the spring rains waited until tonight.

Stick by Leila O.

I thought the slide show was fun.  The kids loved it (that's the little girl's Mother on the screen).  Her name is Lily and I love her work, especially this piece!

Weaving by Lily P.

Crocheted & felted nest by 'yours truly'

Bag by Jill C.

A nest I started that Elizabeth B. finished for collaboration

'All That Was Left' - my failed attempt at felting. : )  Note that there is barely any felting in this piece.  hahaha

Elizabeth's felted bag (detail)  She's WAY better at it!  lol

Here it is...
Cowpie & Crocuses

Based on this photo:

And here's the gang (minus two students):
Lily, Monika, Sandra, Jill, Elizabeth, Leila, & Anahit our instructor

Thank you Anahit for such a wonderful opportunity!  ; )
Alrighty then...  off to throw a birthday party for one excited little soon to be 6 yr old!
