Results of last show

I sold nothing but made a lot of new friends.  I am the proud owner of a batik rag jacket.  Only bummer was I took my last doll and someone broke off a finger but luckily it was found and I can apoxy it back on.
 Now on to the next show!

New doll


Nothing like starting the day off in a ditzy way.  Got to work and had 2 different shoes on.  One a dark brown Mary Jane and the other a tan boat shoe.  Well I gave everyone a good laugh. 

Am having a show with 3 other women this weekend.  Starts tonight and goes thru Sunday.  I am not there tonight as there are 2 holding down the booth and it is really full.  It is a quilt show and is amazing.  There are rows and rows of beautiful quilts.  My fav was a wall quilt of Dracula in a coffin.
Of course I can't afford anything.  I did buy 2 parasols in blue and purple that I hope will help decorate my booth.

That's all for now. Hope the weather where you are is as beautiful as it is here!

I wasn't going to SAFF this year because I had planned to do a show in the mountains of NC.  Well I didn't get into the show but knew we needed a break before the holiday madness so I signed up of a spinning class at SAFF.  Am trying to book a cabin today.  This is a beginners class so I will learn how to do maintenace on my wheel and will get help with drafting which I really need.  I am excited to be going to the mountains in late October, there is usually still plenty of colour. 
  Other doings, I just found a new seasonal beer that is wonderful.  It is ShockTop Pumpkin Wheat.  Nice light beer with a little pumpkin and spice flavor.  Give it a try, really makes it feel like Fall is here.

Just got an email

I just got an email congratulating me for entering a project.  It has been accepted by the Brookyn NY library and will be cataloged with their other enteries.  Problem is I can't remember this project or what I sent.  I know I can be flaky but you would think I would remember.  Well maybe they will send me a copy of the catalog!

I had applied for a spot at a spa in NC mountains for an 11 person show for one weekend.  Got a confirmation that I was in so I already booked a place.  Today I got a notice that I had not been selected for the show so I went back to the first email and found out that I had only submitted my registration properly, not that I got accepted to the show.  I am so bummed, it was to be my last show of the season and since it was a captured audiance at the spa, right at Christmas, I expected to do very well.  So only 4 more shows for the season unless I can pick up another at this late date...  Oh well, I will have a nice inventory for spring!

nuno failure again

I just made a beautiful scarf in fall colors so this is the first successful nuno in 3 weeks.  I started another one today on very open weave polyester.  Sooooo did not work. I rolled it enough I thought but I haven't given up on it yet.  Think I will change over to felted soap and see if I don't have more luck.  I have a show coming up in 2 weeks so things better start working!

On another topic, we are still in court trying to get our visitation rights back to have Jonathan.  At 14 he has decided he doesn't want to see us any more.  The law says you can not break the divorce decisions so his mother has been held in contempt of  court once and it looks like she will be again.  What an emotional and money mess.  Don't even want to say how much this has cost with no end in site.  Wish us luck!
